This Was a Beast…

to hang up.  This is what we’ve been working on this week in the living room. And when I say we, I mean my husband and I.  So excuse my absence this week please.  I’ve been doing about a million other things too and having fun with the little girl.  But I have some goooood stuff to show you soon…don’t you worry. :)

I’ll talk more about the gallery wall when I finally get to show it, but I am SO excited we have a real gallery wall now! You know I’ve been scared to death to do one ever since I began blogging.  But scared no more I say!  Well, that’s not true because they still scare me, but it sounded good.

Have a great weekend everyone, and if you want to include a link in the comments of a gallery wall you’ve completed, go for it!

  1. This looks great! I know these are Ikea frames and it looks like some of them might be from the Ribba series, but some like the little square ones I don’t see online. Would you mind posting the sizes and names of the frames you used here?

    • Hey Cara, they are actually all Ribba frames. The smaller ones are 5 1/2×5 1/2. They are cool because you can put the photo right up front or make it like a shadowbox. :)

  2. Looking good!!

  3. Oh Can’t wait to see the finished product! I know that is hard work!
    It’s gonna be good though ;)

  4. Looks good! I was scared of making a gallery wall too! It took me a while, but I finally decided to just do it and stop over analyzing it. haha! Here’s the one I made in our living room.

  5. Can’t wait to see it! They are not fun to put up, but so worth it when done!! I love that West Elm now includes hanging templates with their frames…genius!

  6. We did a gallery wall and it took forever! lol!
    The hardest part was the hanging.
    You can see ours here:
    Im really happy with how it turned out though ;)

  7. Emily!! Im loving it already!! and its sitting on the floor-LOL I cant wait to see it on the wall!!
    I did one last week-not as fancy but it works-its filled with my kids artwork.

  8. Looks good so far. Hope to be finishing my gallery wall this weekend. Please come over and see the finished product.

  9. I’m still in the early stages of my gallery wall, i.e., I just painted the room color last weekend. :) I guess it’s good to hear everyone say that it’s a long process or I’d probably get frustrated & quit early on. Thanks for that encouragement!

  10. hi Emily! Can’t wait to see it up on the wall. your arrangement looks great so far! I did something similar in our hallway.

  11. Hey Emily! You are sooo brave. I haven’t done a gallery wall yet because I’m chicken! I have a massive walls in my house that are aching for a gallery! Guess I better take the plunge. Can’t wait to see it on your wall.

  12. Yay I’m done. Had a few finishing pieces. Please take a look.

  13. I love a nice gallery wall! i completed one recently in my youngest daughter Ana’s room and I LOVE it! I mixed it up with different patterns in shades of pink and green and I totally love how it cam out!!! What do you think?

  15. Can’t wait to see it! The layout on the floor looks amazing.

  16. Would you mind listing all the frame sizes that were used in your gallery?
