On Friday we just released our new DIY Gallery Art Pads. Have you ever wanted a gallery wall you saw on Pinterest and you didn't know where to start? I know I did! These pads are the perfect solution. All you do is take some photos, frames, a DIY Gallery Art Pad and done! I chose the American Sweetheart Gallery Pad, it fits my style the most. I started by pulling out my favorite designs or quotes and framing them along with pictures of me & my fiancé, Jack since it's for our bedroom. I laid them all out on the floor to see how I wanted them arranged. It doesn't need to be perfect at all. I put down a measuring tape at the bottom so I made sure to stay within the range for my wall. (not necessary but it helped me) I got most of my frames at Hobby Lobby and even used some I had left over in my garage.
There was a lot of re-arranging and shuffling of pictures before I had it like I wanted it. I also took some photos before I started hanging pictures so I had a reference of spacing. One thing I realized once I got it on the wall was that the shelf was about the height we would run into it, so re-arranging needed to happen after I started hanging. So watch out for that. I will also admit that I put up most of the frames with 3M Command Velcro Strips. They are the best and come off later, especially if you make a mistake.
