The ever elusive gallery wall. We’ve all seen them on Pinterest only to feel that ache in our souls, knowing it can never be ours. Ok, ok I’m being a little dramatic. Seriously guys we are huge lovers of the way a well arranged gallery wall can set off a room and add sophistication up the wazoo ( not a sophisticated term, I know.) But we’re keeping it real here. None of us, or I should say few of us, have a plethora of cash ready to be spent on wall art, especially enough to make an impact on a large wall!
Today we are debuting a video showing you how to get started on your very own IOD DIY Gallery Wall! We’ve taken a single sheet of 1/2″ Sande Smooth Plywood from Home Depot ( you can buy yours at any hardware store ) like this:
and turned it into this gallery wall ( with some wood to spare!!). TIP: If any of your pieces have any bow to them, work on the convex side. That way the edges lay flat to the wall and compensate for any slight bow.
I’m NOT KIDDING!! And it was FAST! You could get this done in a weekend my lovelies! We are going to do the entire series of videos for this wall, showing you just how easy and fast it is. But today we started with the Redoute Floral Vase and the Laurel Relief pieces ( shown on the very left side of this wall )
You can follow our wall verbatim OR you can use our techniques and principles to create your own version ( that’s what I’m going to do, this here is Josie’s wall, I have a wall I will be creating for later on that will be more cottage traditional farmhouse in style!)
Here is the template for your cuts. Print this out and take it to Home Depot or your favorite hardware store. Home Depot charges .50 Cents a cut! ( The Second image shows you which piece belongs where for the cuts for your reference ) And below that is the vase template as promised!
That’s all you guys need to get started! Let us know in the comments here or on our YouTube channel which ones you want us to show you next! Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss any!
