Below is a step-by-step guide to creating a layered and balanced gallery wall that can change as often and as quickly as your little ones.

Once your frames and prints have arrived, it's time to style! Below, find all the steps to building a perfect and playful gallery wall!
1. Install Gallery Wall Ledges
Ledges make it super easy to rearrange and replace art without drilling a million holes in your wall. Kids go through a million phases and change their minds about what they love often, so it's best to keep the ledges up so the art can change as often as they change their minds.
2. Start With Larger Frames In a Variety Of Colors And Textures
Working your way in, disperse across the entire length of the ledges to create balance. Leave some space in between to add smaller pieces to add depth.
3. Add An Alternate Medium
Gallery walls don't have to be limited to frames only! Add in acrylic prints, canvas prints, or sentimental objects to mix it up and create a dynamic look!
4. Include Framed Images Of Your Children
Absolutely add some precious pics of the little ones! It's their special space - let them see that!
5. Layer Small Picture Frames Up Front To Create Depth
Add some smaller pieces upfront to create overlapping layers. (You may want to secure with painters tape on the back to make sure nothing flops over)
