Art Gallery Wall

Hello family and friends! As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been steadily working on creating an Art gallery wall for my staircase and so far, I think I’ve gotten to a pretty good point with it! To keep the cost down, I mixed pieces I made with store bought pieces.  The first piece I made for my collection was the floating feather art which was pretty simple to make and only cost about $20 total.  Here’s some close ups of the other pieces I’ve made so far and the breakdown:

A couple months ago I went to the country living magazine fair (side comment: I was in decorating heaven!! Check my IG acct. for pics!) and found these antique keys for $6 each, which I painted blue.  I got this cool textured paper from Sam Flack for about $7 and the shadow box frame with a double layer matte at home goods for $12.  Total cost: $43. Ok so this wasn’t as cheap as I wanted it to be but I love how I was able to customize it to my color scheme and choose the layout, etc.

I think this is my favorite piece that I’ve made for my art gallery wall so far. And it was ridiculously easy to make: I literally just framed a piece of faux fur. I found the frame with matte at goodwill for about $7 and got the remnant piece of faux fur from a discount fabric store for about $2.  I had to doctor up the frame and matte a little with some spray paint but the entire project took about 20 mins to make and I love how simple and textural it is!

This piece cost me $0 as I had the materials on hand (canvas, acrylic paint, brush, silver spray paint).  I might revisit this piece though and work on it some more, but for now it does the job of bringing some stronger color to my art gallery wall.

 

Here are some more pics:

So far I think my little art gallery wall is shaping up nicely, but I might be a little biased :-).  And I’ll definately be adding/removing/rearranging some pieces and will be sure to include updates! Anyway, tell me what you guys think of what I’ve got so far, please leave a comment below!

    That has to be the most gorgeous gallery wall I have ever seen and I’m not over exaggerating. I have a huge blank wall in my living room and am trying to think of ideas on what to do with it and I’m most definitely inspired!

    Your wall is lovely! This is a crazy question, but I have wanted to do something on my staircase wall, but I can figure out how you get the items on the wall (especially ones higher than you can stand). How do you place your ladder on the stairs? Am I missing something easy? Thanks for any enlightenment you can give.

    Thank you Donna, I appreciate the compliments! And thank you so much for stopping by!! The staircase walls in this project is actually standard height so I was able to reach the top just by standing on the steps. There is a little device though, called a ladder leveler that should aid in keeping your ladder sturdy so you can reach the higher parts of your wall. It looks like you will need an additional person to help when hanging. I’ve seen them at lowes.com, but I bet you could get a good deal on Amazon.com. Hope this helps, let me know how everything works out!
