DIY Affordable Gallery Wall – Under $100

BEFORE

Organizers: Nail, Hook, Hardware Storage | Tool Kit: Kobalt Household Tool Kit – wanted to share this incase you are living in an apartment or dorm room. It is great, has all the basics you will need but doesn’t take up much room!

Picture Frames: 11×14 Black Wood Picture Frames – let me tell y’all, these are a GEM at Target!! Only $20 per frame and they are a dupe for the infamous CB2 Frames that are $65+ a pop! Now don’t get me wrong, I love the CB2 frames because they are square, come in more sizes and I even have some in my bedroom but these are just as beautiful and since I knew I was buying so many, I wanted to cut the price down.

These were a bit of a pain in the butt to nail because there are two hooks at the top and there isn’t enough wood frame to just hang it on the frame itself so it took some trial and error (sorry landlord LOL)

We went to Walgreens to print some photos out. These were size 11×14 and if you have never used Walgreens photo, it is super easy. You upload your photo online and then they print them out with whatever size you need within 2 hours! It is quick and the quality is perfect. I know CVS does this as well if you live closer to one of those. I’ve used both and don’t really prefer one over the other!

I think the wall turned out perfect and it looks SO much better than before! I need to have a conversation with whoever put that stupid breaker box in the middle of a living room! LOL, apartment life at it’s finest am I right?! All in all, the wall cost less than $100 to make(including prints) and is the perfect DYI for a weekend project!
