Back in July I went to Atlanta to visit some friends and while I was there, I went to Ikea! My main purpose was to buy some picture frames because they are such great prices. I knew I wanted a bunch to make a gallery wall in the living room. I got some pictures printed out at Walgreen and the rest of the art I ripped out of magazines (who can complain about free? haha).
I started out by laying out frames on the ground to see what I liked.
After tweaking it a little, I started hanging pictures on the wall. I'm am so not a perfectionist and so I just guesstimated. I actually didn't have to re-hang anything - maybe that also has something to do with me not being a perfectionist, haha.
After hanging what I had laid out so far, I realized I didn't have enough frames on the wall so I just went to town adding more. Again, I winged it and it ended up working out like I wanted.
I really, really love how it turned out! I also think it will be fun changing out the pictures and art over time. :)
