Everyone has plenty of pictures they'd love to display in their home, but the perfect picture frame can be expensive and difficult to find.

Do you love to hang some pictures on the wall of your family or friends but not sure how you want todo this then check out this. Make a galley wall with them. You can use old frames that you have or buy some cheap ones from thrift stores and paint them then put in he pictures. You can do this on any wall from living room, hall, bedrooms or any room and keep close together or a little space. Super easy too and it gives that wall a new look.

What I did to my wall is to put the frames closer to each other, making a puzzle-like look. You can use different shapes sizes, and colors of frames. My frames are all the same, in color and shapes but differ in sizes. It looks more neat and uniform.

I like that you can use a can of spray paint and make the frames match whatever decor you like. The options are endless. You can even use a variety of sizes to make the picture wall unique and a little zany if that is your style of decorating around the house..

Gallery walls can definitely get expensive. I want one in my new apartment, and this might be a great way to achieve it without breaking the bank. Thanks!

I really like this DIY wall art idea. Some gallery walls can seem cluttered, but the black picture frames help create a chic and organized look.

I want to do this in my home! It would be perfect in my bedroom.
