How to Create a Floor to Ceiling Gallery Wall

I love gallery walls over here because you can show off a lot of smaller pieces of art all together. However, gallery walls can be intimidating to hang if you don't know where to start. So today, we're here to show you how to do it! For this one, we went floor-to-ceiling with just a five pieces to create interest and impact. Even with only five pieces, you get the same collected look without being overwhelmed with too many pieces to hang. Here's how to master a gallery wall...

How to Create a Floor to Ceiling Gallery Wall

When choosing a grid layout like this, use four of the same size frames that match the width of the larger print. Or, you can create something more organic with different size frames like this

Here's how...
1. Start by laying your frames out on the floor so you can play around with the placement and spacing.
2. Since we had a large frame in our gallery, we started by hanging that one. Use a level to even out the frame.
3. Measuring out from our center frame, we left about 3 inches of space between the frames to go above and below. You can lightly mark with a pencil where you'd like either the top or bottom of the frame to land. 
4. On the back of the frame, measure the distance from the edge to the hanging wire, and mark this corresponding spot on the wall. This is where you'll place your nail.
5. Once all your frames are hung and level, it helps to place a bit of putty at each bottom corner to keep the frames from tilting.

I love the impact it now adds to small space or corner in need of some love!
