Adding a personal and memorable touch to the master room

Personalized bedroom with gallery wall

I’ve had a big blank wall on our master room for awhile now that really bothered the eye each time I had to look on that direction. Initially I was going for a mirror, then a piece of art work but the idea of making it special and personal got stuck in my head.

I love taking pictures, so I thought that there wasn’t any other perfect way to incorporate my passion for photography with the love of a mother into a gallery wall. Since I wanted this wall to be a focal point but at the same time to add a subtle touch to the whole aesthetic of our room; I decided to create a grid of frames (these are from BHG at Walmart, find them here) of the same size and style. This arrangement can easily be left on 6 frames (by eliminating the last row) but because I wanted to cover most of the blank space, I went for the lucky number 9.
I wasn’t going to break my head with numbers and calculations so what I did was to create a big X by taping from each corner a long tread to the opposite side. This gave me the exact point of the center of this wall and where I placed the first frame. From there on, all I did was to measure 4″ from each side which gave the exact position of the next frame. To make sure the frame wasn’t leaning more to one side, I use a small level.

For the photos, I printed them on black and white to make them more eye grabbing and without any white border in 5″x 7″ format.

I have to say that besides adding a personal touch to our room, this wall has a very deep sentiment to us. It is where our hearts hang and a reminder of what a beautiful family we’ve been blessed with. Share with me your thoughts on how you personalize your home.

    Thank you so much, Debbie! This is the first time I've done a gallery wall, and I think I'm planning on making another one pretty soon. Thanks for stopping by!
