Corner Gallery Wall + Some Extra Gallery Inspiration!

Hello! As I shared with you last week, I’m redoing our entryway area. I originally had our gallery wall on a larger wall above our entryway table, but I decided to change it up (You can read more about my changes and plans for this space HERE). I still had all these pretty pictures and things to use, and I knew I still wanted a gallery wall of some sort, I but didn’t know where in our tiny living room I’d put it. So, I did what I normally do when I need a little inspiration; I hit up Pinterest! I searched unique gallery wall placements and small gallery walls. Basically you name it, I searched it. I needed ideas!

SONY DSCWe have a corner in the living room where I had put up a black shelf with some bottles, and slapped a large frame on the other wall. It’s been so boring, but I honestly just didn’t know WHAT to do in that corner. We bought a new couch last year, and this sucker is gigantic. It’s a sectional, and takes up almost our whole living room. We can’t back it up to that corner wall because it would totally block off our entryway/walkway into the house. SO, we (sort of) have a large awkward space behind the couch under that wall. We have a huge cat tower there to take up some space for now per the hubby’s request; but I’m over it. The thing is huge, and it’s basically it’s own piece of furniture. Anyway, I removed it for the pictures because, well, it’s ugly. :)

In my Pinterest searching, I found a lot of ideas for corner gallery walls. Who said a gallery wall HAS to be all on one wall, anyway?! I finally had my inspiration and I got to hanging. You’d think I’d be a total “planner-outter” of a gallery wall, but that’s not so. I wing it. I just lay all my frames out on the floor and rearrange until I see what I like. I take pictures on my phone of the arrangements I come up with so I have some reference when hanging, but that’s about it. I gotta say, I’m so happy with how ours came out!

SONY DSCYou might see a few familiar pieces hanging there, like my “&” printable (you can print out your own, too!). It’s the perfect little art to add to our gallery!

SONY DSCI hung a few of my favorite photos, and of course a gigantic one of Jade. :) I got the cute little mirror at Hobby Lobby for only $5 with a 50% off coupon. The “Love is all you need” sign I’ve had for awhile, and knew I wanted to add that in! Recognize the F Scrabble letter? That’s my Rustic Scrabble Monogram. A super easy project!

SONY DSCOn the other wall, you’ll notice my Rustic Arrow String Art. I finally got to hang it. It’s still one of my favorites! I have a couple more pictures of the three of us taken last summer, which will need to be updated soon! The “On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand” art is from Hobby Lobby as well, also 50% off.

SONY DSCI just love this chippy “F” letter I found at Michaels. The metal down the side gives it a industrial feel. I need more of that in my life!

SONY DSCI really wanted to keep this area neutral. I’m no stranger when it comes to color, but I wanted to be able to add little hints of it throughout the room as I feel the need. I didn’t want to be “stuck” again with any one color.

SONY DSCYou can totally see that awkward space behind the couch. Because our living room has zero overhead lighting, we have to rely on lamps. I’m thinking of maybe moving the cat tower to the trash can out of that area (sorry kitties), and putting a little table there with a lamp on it. Any ideas for more lighting in the corner? I’m just glad this wall is now looking complete!

What I love about gallery walls is that every one is totally unique. In all my searching on Pinterest, no two walls looked similar. Everyone has different houses, different pictures and art, and different places to put them. So, if you’re having trouble figuring out placement of your gallery wall or what to include, I’ve included below 10 of my favorites. Each one is original for a different reason. I hope they can inspire and help you create the perfect gallery wall for your home!

Gallery-Wall-453x680I love this simple and colorful stairway gallery wall from Abby at Just a Girl and her Blog. She gives fabulous tips on how to create the perfect gallery wall, too!

gallery-wall8Some stairs have long walls like this one, but Lauren from Bless’er House totally makes this wall gorgeous by adding some beautiful pictures, frames, and monograms!

diy-gallery-wall-making-it-in-the-mountains101Kristi at Making it in the Mountains shows that gallery walls don’t have to be on flat walls. She makes what otherwise might be an awkward wall into a beautiful gallery!

DSC_06891This corner gallery wall from the Liz Marie Blog totally helped inspire my own. I love the cozy and rustic feel of hers!

6a00d8358081ff69e2019b00321bc4970b-800wiWho says gallery walls can’t go all the way from floor to ceiling? I love this stunning black and white modern gallery from A Beautiful Mess.

A-Lovely-Lark-Family-Room-3Another corner gallery wall that inspired me. Even though her corner is small, A Lovely Lark utilizes the space wonderfully!

IMG_6926DIY Playbook  shows us that a gallery wall doesn’t have to just be in the living room! I love this pretty and chic laundry room wall. I’d be happy doing laundry here!

Decorating with Color-7Having a gallery wall in the kitchen or dining room can be a great focal point for the room, as Domestic Fashionista has shown so beautifully here.

Gold-Gallery-WallIf only David would let me decorate with gold like this! I’m in love with this stunningly gorgeous gold gallery wall from Classy Clutter that wraps halfway around the living room! Her use of mirrors makes it so interesting to look at.

How-To-Layered-Picture-Frames-10This out-of-the-box gallery wall makes me happy! Empty frames stacked and hung look SO pretty in Makely School for Girls‘ master bedroom. Paint them any color to match any decor!

Which gallery wall is your favorite? What would you hang in your own?

I hope you have a fab rest of the week, friends!

    You gallery wall turned out beautifully!! I really just love it and all of the original pieces that go with it, yet they all flow together really well. That rustic arrow string art piece is, of course my fave!! I don’t remember seeing the ‘&’ printable, but love that, too! And the rustic F you got from Michaels is awesome, too! I really love that gallery wall from Bless’er House… that is just amazing. I love her blog!

      Thank you, Andrea! I love your idea about a narrow table and making some lighting myself!! I always think large and square when I think “table,” but a small thing table would be so much better. Thanks for your ideas! :) Hope your week is going great!
