I have been in love with wall galleries and their use of a pattern in a frame. I've seen zebra, polka dots, and chevrons create an interesting color scheme mixed with family pictures, letters, and a chalkboard with a custom saying. Combining all of these elements really makes a gorgeous gallery wall.
The best part, is that you can use what you have and create something like this for FREE. That's right! FREE!!!!! I had some art prints that I decided were cheesy, so took the art prints out and put in FREE printables.
Visit Valerie at Pixel Stix Graphics to get your own red or blue chevron printable.
I also upcycled a clearance item into this cute DIY chalkboard. I got this last year, and it was hiding in the corner of a closet, but now it's headed straight for my wall gallery!
Other materials for repurposing ugly or outdated art:
- Leftover fabric
- An old t-shirt
- An old table cloth
- Scrapbook paper scraps
- a page out of a book.
Maybe you don't have a frame, but you can cruise the clearance rack or dollar store and find something that is plain and simple for cheap.
I can't wait to reveal the gallery!
