As our bedroom makeover continues (read more here), I am slowly incorporating new projects into the room. I’ve been working on a sort of gallery wall for above the bed which will feature some monogram art and black and white pictures in white frames.

After painting, I bought some mattes and printed out some of my favorite pictures. Then I laid them out in several different arrangements before settling on one I liked. It’s a little bit asymmetrical, which I think adds interest.

Of course it ended up a bit different on my wall. I’d recommend getting a large sheet of paper or piece of cardboard and laying out your frames on it. Mark all the hangers, and then you can transfer to your wall easily for a perfect match. I didn’t have anything large enough so I just decided to wing it and ended up with this:

I think I’ll add some smaller things like a wedding invitation and other trinkets when I decide how to mount them. But for now, I love it!
