After my last post about our gallery wall, I thought I should probably update you on the semi-finished/never really finished product. :)

We decided to change our old gallery wall from a hung wall to picture ledges for a variety of reasons. First, I love switching out art all the time. I change my style and mind too often and every time I’d take something down I’d have issues getting it back up or would no longer like the flow. I also felt like our gallery wall configuration was getting stale and there any change meant I had to find a way to hide nails, screws and holes.

With a combination of family photos and fun prints, I love the fresh look of the new wall. The frames are almost all Ikea. I was so excited with how it turned out by mixing and matching different styles and every frame is less than $10 with most being less than $6. The shelves are Ikea Ribba, the same ones we used for book ledges in B’s room and will use in the nursery as well. They are too good to be true as they are inexpensive, easy to install and come in three finishes.

All of the photos on the wall are by Melissa Oholendt other than B and his birthday cake (Canary Grey Photography) and B in the top left (Gina Zeidler Photography).

Free apple printables are available at Paging Supermom, one of my favorite sites.

The You Are It print was a freebie from Justina Blakeney. I love it. Simple. Solid.

The $5 Be You tiful print was such a fun bright find and is available on Etsy for instant download.

And the cow with glasses is from BC Print Shop. I got it for $7.

This was seriously a 30-minute project, something anyone could do in any room to make it feel finished and bright with very little money and time. For other free printables to complete your gallery wall, follow my Pinterest board filled with freebies. Cheers to a new week!
