So a little while ago, Hubs and I decorated our master bedroom [you can read about it here] and while it was a huge improvement on the sea of magnolia we'd lived with for two years, it wasn't finished.
I'd always wanted to create a gallery wall in our bedroom; initially I thought it would go behind our bed but when it was pointed out to me that position might make the room feel cluttered, I began looking for an alternative... and identified the perfect spot!
Located opposite our bed, this section of wall was perfect for a gallery wall, it was not too big to make a gallery wall make the room feel cluttered but was large enough to make an impact. However, it has our ensuite, namely the shower cubicle, on the other side, which meant drilling and nailing frames to the wall was out. I put my thinking cap back on...
...and decided to try Velcro and Command strips and you know what, it's worked a treat!
I had some Velcro leftover from creating an in-cupboard cork board in our kitchen but bought a small pack of medium-sized Command strips...
The Velcro actually seemed like the best way to fix most of my chosen frames to the wall so I stuck one or two pieces, top and bottom, to each frame.
As I'd already played about with the layout beforehand, I knew roughly where I wanted each frame to go so when it came to sticking them to the wall, I simply placed a small spirit level on top of each frame and placed them against the wall, spacing them by eye... which probably explains why I feel there's too large of a gap above the yellow frame, so I'm on the look out for one final frame to fill that space.
Overall, I'm pretty pleased with our little afternoon project and think it really adds to our bedroom without overpowering the calm and serene sanctuary we've worked hard to create :)
