Sometimes I get on tangents that end up a little more involved than I’d hoped. For instance, I was doing a little rearranging around the house yesterday since I’ve been so busy with other things that I still haven’t taken the time to focus on setting up our new apartment. So, I decided on a whim to start on the gallery wall that I wanted to do (inspired from the top photo) by using this seemingly simple technique. Looking at these two photos the whole gallery wall idea seems both charming and totally do-able, and it is. But, what they don’t show you is the sweating, curling paper, flip-flopping, cats jumping in the air, tippy toes on a ladder version of this women, which, is the actual truth of it all.
Hence my original statement of things being a little more involved than I’d hoped. Overall though, this technique totally works. I can only imagine what kind of train wreck I would have looked like trying hammer & then undo my constant indecisiveness.
1 |Lay out the frames on the floor in the arrangement of your choice.
2 | Trace and cut craft paper to the size of each frame or piece of art.
3 | Tape or pin the craft paper to the wall in the arrangement that you chose, and make any adjustments necessary.
4 | Hang the frames directly over the craft paper.
