Do you have a project that you have been wanting to do and just can’t seem to get to it? This was the case for me with this DIY Vintage Farmhouse Gallery Wall. It has been on my “to do” list since we moved into our house 5 years ago! So a few days ago I decided to tackle it. I wasn’t sure how to make it all happen so logic struck and I just decided to wing it!
DIY Vintage Farmhouse Gallery Wall
As you can see the wall in our staircase was pretty bare. There also isn’t much of a wall to play with because as you go further up the stairs it becomes hidden from the roof. So while thinking about how I was going to tackle the gallery wall, a bolt of lighting hit. This may sound simple but I visualised how I wanted to see our gallery wall in my mind. Then I laid it all out on the floor.
Using 3M Command hooks start with the larger pieces. In my case, it was the old printers tray. To make sure that it was straight, I measure the distance between the hooks on the back. Then position one of the 3M hooks on the wall. Using a tape measure line up the second hook and stick the second hook at the measurement that you previously measured.
Don’t worry to much if you see the hooks above. There’s always a way to hide them with something else.
Then moving onto the next larger piece, centre and hang. I found that once the larger pieces were hung then you can move onto the smaller pieces to fill in the gaps.
Because we wanted to have Vintage Farmhouse feel to our gallery wall the goodies all tied in with that theme. But you can adapt that to your style also. The possibilities are endless!
Adding family photo’s is always a nice touch. I added a bingo card to an old grater with a button magnet.
Scrabble letters, old sewing bobbins, numbers, signs anything adds warmth to your gallery.
I am yet to pop some photos in the frames. But all in all this took no more than an afternoon to pop together and I was totally amazed at how easy it all came together. Kicking myself that I just didn’t get on and do it earlier.
Happy Gallery Walling!
