It’s safe to say that we’ve all been obsessing over well done walls of mixed and matched frames, art and photography for quite a while now (thank you, Pinterest!).
But beside randomly hanging, how does one actually craft one of these seemingly effortless walls themselves? I was curious too so I tapped the expertise of aerial photographer Gray Malin. Together we made a LEAF video on the project and it turns out, it’s more logical than I thought!
Watch the video to learn how to create your own beautiful mix and match art wall in just 3 easy steps.
How to: Mix & Match Art Wall
- Pick your favorite framed art
- Mixing sizes & shapes, place onto butcher paper and cut out frame shapes
- Carefully mark hanging brackets with a pen
- Using tape, try out different arrangements with your frame cut outs
- Tip: Lowest art should be 6-8 inches above any furniture
- Finalize what looks best, making sure everything is level!
- Hammer nails over pre-markers
- Tip: Use hooks for heavier frames
- Pull off butcher paper
- Hang frames, level off
AND in honor of our collaboration, Gray was kind enough to offer a giveaway (isn’t he the best?). The details:
