I tend to always want more than one thing on a wall…；gathering a collection of items or photos. You can see how I’；ve arranged my Sid Dicken’；s Memory Blocks in my living room in my Easy Decorating Ideas post here. I’；ve got 3 more to add to it.
Hanging pictures or art on the wall doesn’；t have to be difficult! I have hung and rehung more wall art than I’；d like to admit？because I hate to use a ruler， but guess what？ When you do， it’；s perfect! ？
Luckily， I’；m married to a perfectionist， so I usually enlist his help when I’；m doing something more difficult， like a gallery wallunique gifts for men， where items need to in perfect alignment. He picked up a tip from my sister on how to hang a picture that is much easier， which I’；ll be sharing later in this post.
When we had a mini-remodel in October， where we painted， had new hardwood floors installed， swapped out the lighting and updated the powder room. ？I really needed to update our gallery wall and knew it would be happening after a fresh coat of paint. The space I use has a couple of challenges because of the thermostat and the doorbell ring box. A gallery picture wall hides those perfectly!
I had created that picture wall below about 12 years ago with a combination of white frames I found at garage sales and black frames I picked up from the Dollar Store and then distressed them myself.
I’；m sure I have a better photo， but for some reason， I could not find it for the life of me! This one below will have to do. While we’；re looking back， here’；s what my living room gallery wall used to look like.
Such a cleaner look now.？
So much better.？I know it looks like a shrine now for our son， but in my defense， we just had his senior photos taken.
Off to IKEA where I found an assortment of gray frames in sizes 8 x 10， 5 x 7 and one large 12 x 12. I wasn’；t sure if I was going to keep my large letter “；D”；， but it ended up making the cut. I also kept the wood sign that the gals from Lolly Jane made me WAY back in 2008， as well as the mixed gray Andy Worhal painting from a place that is no longer in business. (I did find this place？(affiliate link) that looks like you can get something similar.)

Hang your frame. Because this gallery picture wall is in a space of my home that gets a lot of traffic， the frames can become crooked easily. I have used a teeny bit of that blue mounting putty on the bottom corners on the back side. This keeps them even and in one place.
After getting all the frames hung， I still needed something small in the upper left area just to the right of the large frame. I wasn’；t sure exactly， but I knew it would present itself if I shopped around my house.
Ahhh， that’；s better. My round monogram “；D”； was perfect.
There are still small pockets if I decide to add to it， but for now， I’；m happy with it.
Pin both to save for later!

Some of our favorite spaces exemplify what founding editor of Domino Magazine, Deborah Needleman, describes as the perfectly imperfect home — one that’s both lived in and loved. So much of achieving thatlook comes down to striking the right balance in your decor, from the shape and scale of your furniture to the color palette to the amount of light sources in the room.
In case you didn’t see yesterday’s post, I shared my version of a Dorothy Costume.? And yes, Chloe is in ABSOLUTE LOVE!? (And takes her role very seriously…)
The other day Jaime’s SIL, Stevee told us about their family tradition of leaving small bouquets on their neighbors’ doorsteps for May Day (May 1st). I never had this tradition growing up, but I love it so much that I think I will adopt it now.
