Gallery Walls

I have a houseful of freshly painted walls waiting to be decorated. The thought of putting that first nail in to hang some art, however, feels somewhat unsettling. Maybe it’s because I’m not one of those people that like to measure. It’s true, I generally just eyeball something before hanging it up – a personal quirk that might just put my husband over the edge!

If I had a few large pieces, it would be a lot easier. But I don’t. I have a bunch of small photographs and framed drawings. Good thing that I love the look of gallery walls.

Not as easy to pull off as you might think – but worth a shot. I can always cover up my mistakes with other pictures. Right?
