We recently moved into a 92 year old Craftsmen home, which we just love. But, with 92 year old homes comes 92 year old dry wall and hanging anything heavy on the walls becomes a bit of a liability living in earthquake country. In our old home we had a gallery wall of frames above my daughter, Kennedy’s, crib. We didn’t feel it was safe to do that here so I opted to go frameless for this gallery wall. When I saw the Framers from Mpix I knew they would be perfect for the gallery wall in her new room. No heavy frames and no glass.
When I start creating a gallery wall I gather all of the items that will potentially be hung.
Sometimes I do all pictures, but for Kennedy’s wall I wanted it to be a combination of her favorite things. Pictures of some of her favorite people so she could look at them before falling asleep. Some momentos we’ve picked up along the way like a dream catcher we bought on our recent road trip through the Great Plains. And some quotes that hung in her old nursery.
