DIY Gallery Wall

This past weekend I finally marked something off my wish list; putting a gallery wall up in my dining room! Since the first day I moved into my apartment I knew I wanted one, but just never seemed to get around to committing to it. 8 months later though I've settled on something I love! I can't stop staring at it and it really adds this bright pop of color and personality to what use to be a very bland space. 

*Tip: When hanging up your frames, trace the outline of the frame onto paper(I used old wrapping paper) and mark where the nail holes go. This way you can tape them to your wall and arrange them how you like before putting nail holes into the wall. Also your nail holes are marked so you know it'll all fit perfectly

Everything in this gallery came together with pieces I collected over time and I think that's what makes it more unique. The frames were collected from Goodwill, discount stores, and just some my family or I had on hand. The wooden signs were made by me. The prints you see here were just images I found on Pinterest and printed from my computer. Overall this whole project cost less than $20! I love knowing that I can easily switch things out as my mood changes too!

Have you completed any projects this last weekend? If not what project is on your to do list? I'd love to hear what they are down below.
