When I started brainstorming Babygirl’s Room
in 1972, I knew it would contain a Gallery Wall. I have several throughout the house, and especially love the fun they can infuse in a kid’s room. My son loves adding to and personalizing his, and Babygirl is already in love with having her own.
It took a lot of rearranging to get the bed and highboy to fit in the room properly (thanks, Nipper, and happy birthday!), but once everything was in place, a large empty wall was left…perfect for a gallery of pictures and fun artwork!
I mixed up the colors and shapes, but kept to a common thread of mostly black or white frames. And of course I wanted to DIY most of it, and not spend a fortune in the process!
I also like to mix shapes and add objects other than art or pictures. I just think it’s more interesting.
The grouping looks better as a whole if you use varying sizes of frames and objects, but keep the spacing between them fairly similar.
Many of the frame contents can be updated as Babygirl grows, without me recreating the wall!
I added a few personal touches, such as this Wordle, but kept the personalization to a minimum so the wall wouldn’t come across as a shrine.
And of course the interactive elements are a huge hit! Babygirl gets a sense of freedom in selecting what she wants to display, and I get to control where (on the magnetic strips and memo board)!
So sorry about the color differences in these photos, but the Gallery Wall is opposite the window! See the peek of pelmet in the mirror?
I don’t think I could squeeze one more item or project in this room, which means it’s COMPLETE!!!! Are you still with me? Excited to finally see the full room, or over
me it already?
