I've been slowly collecting prints for my gallery wall since this past Christmas. I envisioned a "kitchen themed" wall to hang by our dining room table, but as I searched I realized there were too many great prints to be locked into a specific theme. So I added variety in an effort to make sure it doesn't look too "match-y".
Let me tell you the story of how I found these, because it was quite the process.
The first print that I received was the Kitchen Conversions print from Sweet Fine Day. It was a Christmas gift from my sister. I was dying to hang it up immediately, but I needed to wait until I had the correct frame (it fits best in an Ikea frame).
I finally made my way out to Ikea in the spring and picked up all the frames you see on this wall. I also bought the two shelves that some of the frames sit on from Ikea.
And that's when I wanted to make this a gallery wall for our new place.
I shopped around a bit at stores like Michaels, World Market, and Target, but I couldn't find what I was looking for.
So I turned to Etsy. . .and Pinterest. . .and a few other random places. . .
And the gallery wall was created.
I wish my chandelier wasn't in the way!
So let's break it down:
