The Easiest Grid Gallery Wall

The Easiest Grid Gallery Wall - roomfortuesday.com I shared my Humane Society makeover on Monday and have since received SO many questions about the grid gallery wall. I figured this post needed to be bumped up! Click through to see the easiest grid gallery wall, my technique for installing it, and how to get those free dog prints many of you have been asking about…

The Easiest Grid Gallery Wall - roomfortuesday.com Once you’ve determined where you’ll be installing the art, here are the tools & supplies you’ll need:

SUPPLIES + TOOLS

Step 1 // Setup the laser level. I like to set the laser level first by determining where I want the frames to fall on the wall. I use the cross beams to make sure it’s perfectly level vertically and horizontally.

The Easiest Grid Gallery Wall - roomfortuesday.com Step 2 // Hang the template. The framing kit makes everything super easy and it comes with a template for hanging. I taped the template to the wall and tried to flatten it as best as possible. Adjust the template and laser level until everything is situated  perfectly on the wall.

Step 3 // Add the hooks. Next, I pushed the hooks into the wall directly over the dots on the template. Once all of the hooks were set, I removed the template.

The Easiest Grid Gallery Wall - roomfortuesday.com Step 4 // Hang the frames. Lastly… after hanging the frames, I readjusted the laser level and straightened each frame individually, since they tend to shift during hanging. Pro tip: if they won’t stay level, I use a little dot of sticky tack to hold them in place on the bottom corners.

The Easiest Grid Gallery Wall - roomfortuesday.com That’s it! An easy, inexpensive gallery wall under $90. It took about 20 minutes to install and the result is a really fun art installation in the behavior room at the Utah Humane Society. I really wanted to add some dog-related personality to the space.

    OMG. I just spent 15 minutes reading about vectors. That website is quite a resource; I’m imagining all the ways I could use it. Thanks so much for sharing your expertise and skills. I’m always learning something here. And, the dog gallery is sweet, btw!

      It is a really good free resource! In design school, I always hunted for free vectors :) That is the best compliment… that you’re always learning something here. I try to learn something new everyday and to be able to share that here for others is so fulfilling! Have a great day! xo

    How did you make the dog images larger? I apologize – I am clueless to what a vector is. I googled it and still don’t know how you did that!
