Gallery Wall

I am absolutely in LOVE with all the beautiful gallery wall displays.
 But let's face it....
I have small hallways and limited wall space, so clustering frames together would make me claustrophobic.
But I have had this idea for awhile to frame in, with molding, a piece of the wall and then collage picture frames.
Making it appear better balanced in my small space.

I first framed out my wall space. 

 I then painted the inside a stark white. I knew this would make everything pop. I started with stripes, but quickly decided that it was still too much for me. I needed to keep it clean and simple for this space.
So repainted the wall back to the stark white.

 Once I had it framed in and painted, I also painted the molding black.
(Note to self....make the molding frame first, paint it, and then pin nail it on....That would have saved me some taping and retouching. )
 Then I dug out my frame bin and started collecting all the frames I wanted to use for the wall! 
I took them outside to spray paint them black and then started to piece each frame  together on the wall. 
 More frames dug out and painted......

Picture Perfect Family Tree Wall. 
 I love how slim to the wall it all is. My hallways are narrow and it doesn't make me feel confined!

 Now to collect which pictures I want up on the wall.
I am doing several with all kinds of trees, black n' white. 
And the rest with pictures of our family! 

Do you LOVE  it as much as I do??
I can't stop looking at it!

Stop by soon for an updated wall with the pictures!
