Hanging a gallery wall in seconds

  1. Wendy says:

    I have been hesitant to try these but am definitely going to try them as it takes me hours to hang a gallery wall! Thanks.

    Looks great! I love the look of a more organic gallery wall. Meaning: I hate measuring :). Good to hear you are pleased with the Command strips. Our rental house has plaster walls and our landlady said she’d rather is not hang anything on the walls. I’ve been collecting things for a huge gallery wall for a while, so that wasn’t going to fly ;). I was leary about the strips, but if you’re pleased with them, I’ll give them a shot!

    Love this! Lori can I suggest that you do a test command strip on your plaster wall somewhere hidden? I’ve had great luck with Command strips on drywall and masonry, but with plaster I’ve found it to be a bit more “hit or miss”. If it pulls off a big chunk at removal, it might be worse than a nail in the wall to your landlady!

    Beautiful wall! You just might want to check the heavier items in a few weeks. With Command Strips I hung a bunch of framed pictures my mom made me, and after about a month they fell and shattered the glass and tore a layer off of the drywall. ๐Ÿ™

    • Same thing happened to me! I came home one day and 2 frames had fallen off the wall and broke. ๐Ÿ™ Plus ripped off the paint. Now I have huge chunks of paint missing over my mantle and 2 busted frames. My walls are plaster, by the way.

    The gallery wall looks good, love the love print! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m planning trying some command stripes to hang art above my stove, I’m crossing my fingers they’ll hold up on our subway tile!!

ON THE BLOG

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
