DIY: Gallery Wall

I have quite a few framed pictures around my apartment,
and I've always loved the look of gallery walls,
so I decided I'd make my own on the den's biggest wall.

Meter stick, pencil and level.
Not pictured - Clear Command Hooks*

Before hanging anything, I laid it out on the floor.
It took rearranging a few times to get it just how I wanted.

Some frames didn't have hooks so I added something like this.

I had three rows so I hung the middle row first.

Then hung the top and bottom rows in columns. 

Keep going. It's a little tedious, but in my option it's worth it in the end!

Halfway through I decided I didn't like the way some frames were hanging,
so I decided too rip the stands off the backs of frames that had them.

I really really really love the way the the wall turned out and love the mix of pictures with decor.

*These were a great idea in theory, and were super easy to apply,
but I've had many fall off since originally hanging
and it's becoming a pain to hang them again and again.
Nails sadly may be the best bet for this project.
