Changing Up My Gallery Wall


Well, i've decided it's time for a change, imagine that.
I purchased everything for my original gallery wall at a thrift store spending only $13.00 total.
It did the trick for a while, but I always planned on changing it up.


I've decided to go all white.
Can you ever go wrong with white frames? I don't think so.



I purchased all the frames from Ikea. 
I must admit, I am completely obsessed with Ikea's ODBY Frames, I love the ribbed edge and the mats are pure white, unlike the other frames.
I still need to add several more frames, but I think this is a good start.
I am hoping to fill each frame with a DIY creation.


More on that later this week!
Do you have any great DIY art projects I should know about?

  2. I love the change! It looks great. :) Around here, I've been adding some trim to lampshades and framing leftover fabric and cool wrapping paper as art!

  3. Looks awesome! I love the white frames. So I don't normally do tutorials, but I did one this week on my blog. Here's the link. http://greenbluebirds.blogspot.com/2012/02/spheres-tutorial.html
    I don't know if this type of painting is even your style, but I like it up on my gallery wall, which you can see here:

  5. Such a great change to update your room! It might be interesting to get some graphic fabric swatches to fill some of the frames. We have a Beacon Hill fabric (Circus in Tuscan) that would be a great conversation piece!

  10. Hi Danielle,

    I love these frames too. Recently, a client put one of my works in to the Odby frame and it really made the work sing.
    As for the DIY's...I have a few on my site if you're interested...they are all art DIY's. Here is the link:

  11. I LOVE IT, these are also my favorite frames and I have to keep myself from over-using them! The rounded corners and white/white is perfect. Improvement over what you had I think, well just a different view!

  12. Looks good! I love those IKEA frames. I really want to purchase a few on my next IKEA trip. Here is a collage wall that I recently did in my home.

    I spray painted most of mine. The frames came from the dollar store, thrift stores and Hobby Lobby.
