If you remember the dining room wall looked like this before:
The new Gallery Wall really has filled out the space on that very large wall and I love how you can see it from different angles throughout our first floor.
If it wasn't for my dad, I would have never gotten these pictures up on the wall! I have had these prints for almost 2 months! YES...I know! I was afraid to tackle putting them on the wall in fear that they would be uneven and then I would have like 1 billion holes in the wall!!
My dad has that engineering mind and you can see from all his drawings and measurings below.Linked up at:
We first measured the width and length of each picture.
(no this is not me and the hubs all lovey dovey!)
Then we measured the length between the two hooks on the back of the frame to see how much wire was needed and how far from the top of the frame we wanted the wire. We then cut the wire for the NINE frames that I bought.
Then we laid them out on the floor to see how far apart I wanted them from each other.
We decided that about 3 inches were perfect.
Then dad got to work.....
From one end of the gallery wall to the other was 69 3/8 inches. From the top of the gallery wall to the other it was 58 1/2 inches. From nail to nail going across the top there was 24 1/8 inches and going from nail to nail down the gallery wall was 20 3/16 inches. YIKES! That was a lot of measuring and I had NO idea what was going on.
Once we measured and put a bunch of pencil marks on the wall, it ended up looking like this....
And...it stayed this way for about a week with all of the lovey dovey's in the pictures! Of course it was driving me a little nutty, but I didn't have time to get the pictures in until this past week.
I am very happy with how it turned out!
Now...I just need to add a little color to this space! Just you wait...I have a plan like always! hehe
PLEASE be sure to stop by again this evening....I have a fantastic GIVEAWAY!
