Hanging a gallery-style art wall is sometimes tricky and incredibly time-consuming. Unless you’re a tiny bit tech-savvy and a whole lot of creative! Here’s the skinny.
Our guest bedroom is seriously lacking in art and visual interest, so I knew a gallery wall was in order. I also knew that with guests arriving in just six days, I had to find fast digital and online solutions instead of shopping around town. Ready for the secret?
- I measured the space I knew I wanted to fill with art and imported those dimensions into an easy peasy software tool like Pages. (Picnik and Photoshop also work!)
- Then, I simply dragged over screen grabs of each art piece I planned to order and arranged them accordingly to come up with this layout:
The trick kept me from buying a piece online that wouldn’t work and saved me countless hours of arranging (and rearranging) frames, numerous holes in our new walls and that whole “step back and tell me what you think” waltz. Even better? Once my art arrives, I’ll know exactly where I want each piece to go and can get to work hanging the gallery immediately! I can’t wait to show you how the art looks in its new home….
