Save yourself needless nail holes. Tape (scrap) paper together, cut into shapes and sizes to mimic the variety of items you plan to display. It’s a great way to play with the layout and move things around. Without needing spackle.

So, how do you create a gallery wall?

Gallery walls can be a unique way to tell a story or showcase a theme. In my case, it would be funky beach.

As Arizonans, we “escape” our desert heat each summer with a couple weeks of sand and sea. Fortunately I have a trio of “beach bums” and a husband who doesn’t mind the 6-hour drive in exchange for some cool(er) days.
