How to Create a Gallery Wall.
If you would have asked me years ago if I would have a gallery wall in my home, well, I would have probably scoffed. I can be creative but, that only goes so far. I had tried many times to even come up with a concept to showcase the many memories that as a family, have created together. But, to no avail.
My biggest concern is how do I arrange them? What sizes should I pick? Can I get them leveled perfectly? Should I choose black and white or colored pictures? Which pictures should I choose and we all know that that is just as hard as hanging them. What type of frames, square, oval, baroque–oh the questions! Sometimes I was over it and I hadn’t even started.
