DIY Art Gallery

I remember when I stumbled across my first frame; I didn't know why I needed it, I just did. After that initial purchase, one thing led to another and I started (as I often do) collecting frames on my visits to garage sales and antique markets. At first, I wasn't quite sure what their purpose would be, but I knew it would be something one day!

When we moved into our forever home, I knew right away I needed a gallery to showcase all the beautiful art that my boys created. My stashed away frame collection was finally ready to be displayed in all its glory.

I found the perfect wall in our breakfast nook and decided that was where the gallery needed to be. Now, to hang each frame, I went with burlap ribbon handed down from my MIL gave me as I just adored the texture and slight striped sass it. I wrapped each frame at the top, and proceeded to lay them out and play with their arrangement.

Once I had an idea of how I wanted them placed, I carefully tacked each one to the wall. I made sure to tie the ribbon tightly over the tack holding it in place.  I worked my way out from the center until all my fabulous frames were hung.

Once they were up, I needed a way to showcase the actual art piece. I grabbed a few of my vintage clips and secured them inside the frame with a thinner piece of burlap ribbon. Before I knew it I was done and ready to showcase some pieces in our very own gallery!

One of my favorite things about this gallery as it is always changing and always reflecting the upcoming holiday or season. It is absolutely one of my favorite walls of the house!

I am always looking to add to our collection as there is more art coming home from preschool these days than I know what to do with!

Are you ready to create a gallery for your home?
