|Kalia's Art Wall (that is her newborn tutu in mirror!- and my elbow..)|
Composing a gallery wall of art for Kalia's room was a fun and time consuming process.
Finding the art pieces I wanted, scavenging eBay, Craigslist and thrift stores for frames were all fun activities that made the final product all the more special.
I collected the frames over a period of months, looking for a particular vintage look. I was lucky enough to find 5 matching ones on eBay that were perfect for the look I was going for.
They came with no glass or backing, so I picked up glass frames at the 99 cents store and used the glass from the cheap frames to put in these. I finished it off with a round antique frame picked up at a flea market.
A score off Craigslist- a good tip when looking for frames with lots of detailing is to instead look for mirrors, you can remove the mirror and just use the frame (I have made chalkboards this way too)
Plus, Kalia (and all babies!) LOVE mirrors.
Art- I will list all the artwork at the end
Measurement and Arrangement-
Measure your wall space and arrange frames on floor for best look
|I covered the art with my awesome Photoshop skills|
Cut out pieces of paper (I used old wrapping paper & old 8X10 sheets) to match the size of the frame and tape it to the wall as you want them hung. This helps visualize how it will look on wall and allows you to move it around without putting a bunch of holes in the wall.
|Those are my scribbles- You can see here why I purchase the art|
Once you decide on the final set up, hang your frames and you are done! (you can see I rearranged mine)
