Creating a No Stress Gallery Wall literally has no stressed involved. If you follow my advice, this can be very fun and adds so much charm to a boring wall space! Now I want to warn you that perfectionism isn’t my thing. This girl likes to get stuff done fast and walk away happy. So who’s ready for a simple stress-free and measurement free zone (because who on earth has the time to search the entire house for a tape measure?!). OK I’m exaggerating a bit, as there is a tool box in the house but I tell you, its still not convenient!! I will give some gallery wall ideas below as I walk you through the process.
Like I said, I like to keep things simple. So the first thing I do to create a no stress gallery wall, is: Step 1. Find a frame or mirror that I love. Step 2. Hammer one of those small silver nails in the wall and get a good hanging bracket at Amazon in the link provided and attach to your frame or mirror. Don’t tell anyone but I’ve actually hung many frames very precariously by the ledge because I didn’t want to install brackets. Hubby would freak out if he knew this. So lets just say I have some secrets 😉Now its time to hang your first frame or mirror, but your worried about placement, Right? If you worry to long, it’ll get stressful. Some people measure and tape off the wall to fit each frame but I figure that takes to long. I just eye ball it. Yep, it’s that easy. Hang your favorite piece at eye level and then work around it. If you have any extra frames, you can create another gallery wall somewhere else or you can save them for a wedding theme. Once you have all the frames or mirrors hung up on those small silver nails, you can stand back and admire your crafty work. Just don’t breathe because it might come crashing down at any second. (Please don’t tell hubby that I use those little silver nails). Now if you have real sheet rock walls, I am jealous of you. We have lath and plaster walls so nails don’t like to stay in place. In all seriousness, I actually do use those little silver nails and they actually do hold nicely in the wall. For some reason, Hubbies freak out when women use these nails and I’m like why? They cause less holes in the wall than using real nails or screws, Right?
Creating a no stress gallery wall of mirrors. First I went into my storage and retrieved a whole bunch of gold mirrors. I started hanging mirrors from the top of the wall going to the right and then downwards. As you can see, I didn’t measure this out but just started hanging these mirrors at random (I may happen to have a few extra nail holes in the wall but they are covered by mirrors so I’m figuring all is good). This wall took me about ten minutes to create, so I’m telling you, this is super easy. Now its time for you to go find some gorgeous frames and stunning mirrors until your heart flutters with joy. The possibilities are endless.
