Oh hi long lost friends! It’s been quiet ’round here this week. How’ve you been?
The gallery wall I just installed in our basement is the one of many I have done in our houses over the years, and the third gallery wall in this house alone.
And the living room with old black & whites.
How many gallery walls in one house is too many? I say, create however many groupings that make you happy. It’s your house 🙂
When I was pulling together the travel wall for our basement, I wanted to mix up sizes and shapes of the frames, while making the grouping cohesive with the same color frames (black). I also intentionally used colored photos on this wall for a big pop of fun color in this room. There’s plenty of room to add more photos over the years, and that is by design too.
When I painted our kitchen cabinets three years ago, I removed a few of the doors for a little open shelving action…..
and always thought the doors would be fun to use for a sign or something interesting.
Fast forward to the basement gallery wall.
The paneled doors made great chunky frames. I simply spray painted the cabinet doors black, trimmed photos to fit, and mounted them to the top of the panel with a glue stick. To give them a more finished look, I added gold foil photo corners. I love how the gold pops against the black.
