Gallery walls are becoming more and more popular every day. It seems like everyone is either making one, talking about making one, or has just made one. And to make matters worse, Pinterest makes it look so easy and effortless. We at OTC know it isn't as easy as slapping some random pictures on the wall. Lucky for you, it isn't too terribly hard either. Just because we love all of you lots, we want to make it easier for you.
First, you'll need to figure out where you want it to go and what theme you want it to be. Chances are you don't want to put a chicken theme in your bedroom or a princess theme in your living room. But hey, if you want too, more power to ya. Some of our current favorite themes are farmhouse, family, travel, and love. The example we’re going to be using is a family theme.
After you choose your theme its best to find a staple piece, or a piece that you want your wall to revolve around. We wanted our sample wall to revolve around one of our favorite family signs.
Next, you should find signs that go with as well as signs that contrast your staple sign. Experimenting with different textures, sizes, and colors is always fun. We started by using a sign that went with our theme but not necessarily our color scheme. At first we were iffy about the wood with the black but we ended up really liking the contrast.
After you find your pieces its really just trying out different pieces in various places. We like to add pieces, take them away, add other pieces, mix it all up, and replace pieces. Of course we have a pretty big selection to choose from in our sign category. We know you don't want to go out and buy 100 potential signs but you can still mix it up a bit with the signs you do have.
When you're finally done deciding the arrangement of your signs its time to hang them! We recommend having a friend or helper. Hanging signs and making sure you like their positioning can become tedious after awhile. Once you've gotten your signs hung its time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the view. Stop by and we'll help you make your own gallery wall! We've helped some of our customers make their walls and we adore the outcome. Check them out for some additional inspiration.
