Gallery Wall #1

The other day I did a post on gallery walls here. And today I'm showing you one completed gallery wall in my living room. (Can I get a whoop, whoop?) It's located above the couch and is on the orderly/symmetrical side.

This is the inspiration set of bird prints that I based mine off of. I love the natural look to them. They have a linen mat and were sold through Clayton Gray Home for $260 for the set. Aren't they lovely?



I thought I could reproduce them in my own way since I didn't have 260 clams to shell out. So here is my take on those prints.






Mitch graciously hanged them for me. See, I come up with the ideas and Mitch carries them out. There's no way I would have been able to measure out all those frames precisely. I don't have the patience for that. Thank God opposites attract!

 



And here's the breakdown: The bird prints I got at a thrift store for $1 each. The frames I got at The Dollar Tree for...yep, $1 each. We used Command Strips to hang them since the original cardboard piece on the back of the frame wouldn't have lasted very long. We got the Command strips at Goodwill for $1/pack. We used one and a half packs. And the fabric backing I had left over from this project. So all in all, I spent $14 on six pieces of art that I totally love.


Not too shabby, huh?
