Photo Gallery Wall

Hello everyone!

Gallery walls are becoming popular in homes around North America. Gallery walls are created with frames in variety of shapes and sizes, all clustered on a wall in a grid or pieced together like a puzzle. Depending on the frames you use, the end result can be sleek and modern, traditional, or even have a vintage feel.

If you have a gallery wall and are planning on selling your home, remove your personal family pictures. If the wall behind the pictures is faded or scratch you can ether paint the wall or keep a few frames up with pictures of beaches or scenery.
