Gallery Wall Idea
Hello Lovely Friends!! Originally this blog post was a giveaway for a local flea market. An image of my unfinished Gallery Wall Idea got pinned from the post, and it went viral! TONS of emails later I am listening to what you are wanting! I have turned this blog post into and informative post on my Entryway Gallery Walls! I’m sharing with you how to Create each Gallery Wall Idea, where to Purchase the same items or similar ones, and Prints to help you create a similar look. You will also find Entryway table and storage ideas in the post!

At the bottom of this post you will find the Gallery Wall Printable Downloads & The Shopping List of where you can purchase the items shown or similar ones.

I constantly am asked what method I used to create this Gallery Wall Idea?!?!? MY ANSWER …. Just start hanging! I have tried many methods out there for gallery walls, and the way I did this one has been the easiest. I started purchasing the products I wanted for the wall months before we were finished building our house (keeping all receipts so I could return what didn’t work).


-Start with your middle object (I started with the wooden Hello word), then work your way around that object.
-Lay the items out on the ground and rearrange until you like the finished look. Don’t feel like you have to use everything you purchased. If something doesn’t look right then don’t force it. It is also okay to make a few store runs to find more items you feel you are “missing”.
-Measure the distance from the middle object to the bottom of the gallery wall design. Use that measurement to measure from where you want the bottom of your Gallery Wall Idea to sit on the wall and go up to where your middle object needs to be hung.
-Hang your middle object and then slowly work your way out, up, and down with your other objects.

If you want a place for guest to hang their coats, put their shoes, and set their purses; then you can work that into your Entryway Gallery Wall design. The basket is for shoes. The bench is great for sitting to take shoes off and on or for placing purses!
You can use standard table frames and remove the kick stand from the back. Most of my 5×7 frames were designed to be standard table frames and I ripped off the kick stand.

Pillows always add a touch of warmth to a spot. I change these out to coordinate with different seasons and holidays. The bottom of this post has a fabulous Shopping Guide which tells you where you can get these items, similar ones, or other ideas for the same type of product.

We found this house in the frame stage. I fell madly in love with the entryway and saw so much potential. It is still one of my favorite spots in the house, and the Orb Chandelier is definitely my favorite light in the entire house!

The Shopping Guide + Printable Downloads for this side of the Entryway are located at the bottom of the post as well.

It has always been important to me to put words around the house that inspire and motivate my family. The prints in these frames are available at the bottom of the post.

It took me a while to decorate the entryway table. I still change it out from time to time, and always decorate for Holidays. I like mixing in garage sale finds with store bought items.

TIP – Just play with it! Put some things up and change it around for a little while. I landed on this look about a month after starting to set things up on the console table. I still plan to add some succulents to the design.


Gallery Wall Idea Prints

You can recreate the Gallery Wall Idea using the below prints. Mix and match the prints with other items you find using our Shopping Guide located below the print packages! You can use a few or all of the prints. Insert into frames, upload to Shutterfly and print on their various wall decor items, mount to foam board or wood. Be creative when using the downloads! Most of the Prints are large and will need to be printed at your local print shop (office depot, office max, staples are usually the most affordable). FedEx can get expensive. Sometimes a local college print shop offers great prices as well!

          Hi! I was just wondering if you could tell me the dimensions of the arrow. I am going to have someone make me one out of old barn wood and just trying to figure out how big I want it. Thanks! Love your wall!

    I want to do a clock wall, what do you suggest I start with?

    1. Kara Woolery

      April 8, 2016 at 5:24 pm

      I would say do the same technique but with clocks. Start with your middle clock piece then work your way out. Get clocks of all different sizes. That sounds so cute!! Be sure to send me a picture if you create one! I would love to see it!!

    Gorgeous I want to purchase the family rules package – I see the large print can also be printed in 11×14. Are the other 4 able to be printed smaller (8×10) or can they only be printed 11×14? Did you find the open bar wood frame in 24×36 at HL? I don’t see it on their website – maybe they only have in store? Thank you so much. Love your gallery walls. Absolutely gorgeous.

    1. Kara Woolery

      April 18, 2016 at 11:32 am

      Hello!! Thank you! Yes I only have it in the 11×14. I can go in and add the 8×10. That is a great idea. Since it is a pretty popular size. I could have those added into the set by later this week. Yes I got them from Hobby Lobby in the store! Thanks again for the kind words! Let me know if you have any more questions at all!

    I have several walls (including curved staircase that I want to do a gallery wall. When is it “too much”? Lol. I can send you pictures of the entry and areas I want to do them to get your opinion.

    Yours are so awesome. I had actually started thinking about some of these before I saw your post. But glad to get more ideas. 🙂

    1. Kara Woolery

      April 20, 2016 at 12:26 pm

      Hey Gina!!! I think if you can mix up the style it can work on a few walls. My one very busy wall is the only one in my house that is that busy. The rest are more simple! EXCEPT one in my daughters room! I will be showing my dining room one this week and it is full of more ideas. I say you start by doing one. Then slowly add an you will know if it starts to get too busy. It also depends on what style you like! Some people think this is too busy for them!

    I am planning on doing the wall art in my living room and I will be purchasing you wall art printables. One question on the 1st printable – Be Grateful… is that on wood it self or is it printed that way to look like wood behind and you put it in a 14×14 frame?? I’m using some of your ideas with some of my own so I may be back with more questions! 🙂 love your ideas!

    1. Kara Woolery

      May 23, 2016 at 11:04 am

    Love your work! Any way you could shoot me an email about some work I purchased? I bought two at the same time & was only able to download one. Pretty sure it was my iPhone being quirky…it kicked me out of the printing screen before I typed the link into my pc browser. Either way, I paid the package but never received it.

    1. Kara Woolery

    Love this decor!! I have finally begun my gallery wall 😉 I started hanging items using command hooks since I’d rather not damage the walls with nails and such. My husband saw your post and wanted to know how you went about hanging the decorations. Appreciate your response! Congrats on a great piece!!


    1. Kara Woolery

      July 19, 2016 at 10:06 am

      Hello Vanessa! I used nails!! LOL. You can read throughout the post and it explains my not so calculated way of hanging my gallery walls!

    I am going to purchase your printable, but I wanted to know if they can be printed on photo paper and put on canvas

    1. Kara Woolery

      August 4, 2016 at 7:43 am

      Hello you could definitely print on photo paper. I actually am changing the ones I printed to photo paper!

    I have a cross that I bough it’s wood and it has a horseshoe on it. To me it’s like rustic I want to make a wall gallery to it I don’t know how to start or what to buy any suggestions please.

    1. Kara Woolery

      August 31, 2016 at 10:11 am

      I would take a picture of it on your phone and when you are out shopping find things you think will go well with it. You can really mix and match just about anything. I think the more differences you have the better! Once you have enough items to fill the space you want then follow the steps in this post for how to hang.

    This is fantastic. Love the wallcolor AND LOVE the mismatched doors!!! GORGEOUS!! I’m assuming white is the same as the trim, Alabaster? But what color is the blue? And is the ceiling a dark wood stain? So pretty!!

  • Jo

    October 21, 2016 at 9:56 am

    THANKS so much for these great ideas and tips. And also, thanks for posting where you bought items, or offering replacement ideas/printables for those no longer available.

    Gave me some great inspiration as I have been working on a wall gallery — in the collecting stage as I wasn’t sure how I wanted to place things, etc.

    I need help find the key on your entryway wall. I have had no luck. Also, I am having a hard time finding the gray picture frame, both the single and double. I’ve looked at hobby lobby, TJ Maxx and Marshals and no luck. Please help these are the last few pieces for my wall to be complete.

      Hello! Try amazon and see if you can find something similar. Search wooden key decoration.
