Dining room gallery wall
I hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving! The celebration was at my house this year, which meant an epic, three-day cleaning frenzy prior to the big day.
In the process of making my Thanksgiving preparations this year, I vowed to have one gallery wall of family photos done and on display by Nov. 28. I mentioned before that I’ve been slacking in the family photo department. I’m trying to get better at that.
I had to scramble to get everything hung up in time for Thanksgiving, but I managed to put together a mini gallery wall in the dining room.
I was recently asked if I would be interested in trying out one of Printcopia’s 16×20-inch canvas prints in exchange for an honest review on the blog. Perfect timing! So the canvas served as the foundation for my dining room gallery wall. I absolutely love how it turned out.
The only problem is I could use about 20 more for around the rest of my house. I particularly like the fact that there are so many options such as border design, thickness, etc. Right now, all their canvas prints are on sale plus free shipping.
I printed the majority of my photos in sepia tone because I wanted a clean, mostly monochromatic color palette.
I plan on converting the images in the top frame to sepia, too. I think sepia just looks better in this room. Maybe it’s because it seems to complement the paint color. I used Photoshop to prepare my images for print. For step-by-step instructions on how to convert a color image to sepia tone in Photoshop, click here.
The “P” in the center of the display was previously cream-colored. I spray-painted it to match the dining room chandelier using Rust-Oleum’s Universal Metallic Spray Paint in Aged Copper.
The votives under the canvas are flickering LED candles from Target. (I didn’t want to risk any heat damage to the canvas.) The glass frames are from HomeGoods and I believe the rest of the frames came from Kohl’s. I’m pretty sure the shelves are from Home Depot.
So I’ve finally got some family photos on display.
I’m excited to continue adding some more photos around the TV wall in the living room. And I’d love to add some molding in the upstairs hallway and use the ledge to display pictures on, too. More details on that project coming soon.
Have you been able to keep up with displaying family photos around your home? What do you think of the canvas trend?
