The Gallery Wall

The Gallery Wall

Even though I’ve been in my new apartment for a few months now, we haven’t really gotten around to decorating the place. This year, I decided that I wanted to remedy that, starting with my bedroom. I’ve long admired the look of a gallery wall and was hoping that I could create something similar in my room. However, when I thought of all the holes I would have to put in my wall and the money needed to spend on purchasing frames, I started to rethink the idea of a gallery wall. Then I stumbled on this image, which provided the perfect solution to my problems- a washi-tape gallery wall.

It cost me less than $15 to buy these different colored tapes and I already had all of these pictures. Some are pages cut carefully from magazines, a few came from last year’s calendar, a couple are postcards, and the picture of me was created by the talented Melanie. The colors of my room are yellow, gray, white, and blue and I wanted to stick with those colors when making my frames. Since my walls are already yellow, I thought it would be cool to add pops of blue and white. This is just the beginning- I definitely plan to add more images over time because I’ve got a lot more wall to fill.  The great thing too is that the washi tape doesn’t damage the walls one bit and I can easily swap pictures in and out.

Tell me: What do you think of my gallery wall?
