Kustom By Kelsie

For those of you who do not know, I run a shop on Etsy.com called ‘Kustom By Kelsie’.  I sell hand-written coffee mugs.  Check out my site HERE.

Gallery Wall Updated

I originally made a post about my gallery wall that I put in my new house when we moved in!  I went off inspiration found online, but recently, we painted our hallway that the gallery wall was on, so I decided to add a few more items onto the wall to give it a little more character and variety!
Here is the first one I did:

My collage frame set (all of the black frames) that I have had is from Target years ago.  I found some old frames from my local thrift store, so I incorporated those.  I found the “Our Nest” sign at Gordman’s and the arrow is from Hobby Lobby.  The ampersand is also from Hobby Lobby and I just put card stock paper in the frame and adhered the ampersand.

Gallery Wall

Original post from old blog 12.4.15
I have always loved collage walls, but now that this gallery wall idea has blown up, I really wanted to try it out in my new house!  I had a group of different sized black frames that I used in my past apartments for a collage wall, and decided to incorporate those with other pieces for the gallery wall.
I found this photo below online as inspiration…

 I started by laying out all of my frames on the ground to figure out how I wanted to arrange them.  I started with my original collage frame set, and then went from there.

I wanted to do so much more, but figured this is where I would start and I can always add in the future.

This is in my hallway to the bedrooms so it fills the space nicely!
