Who doesn't love a gallery wall? I know I sure do- we've lived in four different places since being married and I've had a gallery wall in three of them. In fact, I have three different gallery walls in our current house... I may have some kind of addiction. Nevertheless, I wanted to share our family room gallery wall of family pictures, since I think it's my favorite so far. I also wanted to share the method I used this time to arrange the pictures, because it made the process much more simple and eliminated the extra nail holes I always seem to get when arranging frames on a wall.
I started by cutting out some scrap paper in the shape of all of our frames, which really didn't take as long as I would have thought. Then I experimented, taping up the different papers on the wall until I had an arrangement I liked. I also wrote little words associated with the pictures on each paper so I would remember which was which, since some of the sizes were exactly the same, words like, "B&W fam" and "San Fran".
Then I got to work, putting the nails in the wall directly into the paper, then ripping the paper away and replacing it with the frame.
