Eat this designers!

Gallery wall...what up bitches!! Take that Pinterest!

Oh, yeah, that's right, I have finished a needless project.  But it looks fabulous, so that's all that matters.

To get a good idea of where pictures hang, nail a pin-nail threw an old paint stick.
 Then hold the handle of the paint stick with the nail head on the 'hangin' spot' of the picture.  Place on the wall, where you want the picture to hang, and press. The sharp end of the nail will mark where the picture should hang.
I love my man hands.

 Lay out your design on the floor or whatever.
 Make cut outs of wax paper or newspaper and tape on the wall, where you want the pictures to hang. Then, basically wing it to get your pictures to look right.

Finished product:
Well, hello there gallery wall. Aren't you looking fab. And there's room to grow. Bonus.

Close up.
Starting from the top left is a wedding pic with the bridal and groom's party in front of a large green door, then the clock (with Dream on top), then a pic i took of the Flint Hills with a windmill, then a pic of Wyatt, (next row) then our fabulous wedding pic, a small gold framed pic of my dad in 3rd grad, a large rusted key underneath, a pic I took of wild wheat, then an old red metal lunch box with a wedding pic of Ryan's parents and us on top with an angel ornament hanging on the bottom (I'm obsessed with angel everything...FYI), then a gold framed picture of the original farm of Ryan's grandmother's family, a 'W' on top, then a black and white of my grandpa and a Navy buddy and picture of another grandpa reading my wedding program. The last tri-picture at the bottom is of our wedding also.
Side-ish view.
Amazingly I got all pictures hung with out slamming my thumb with the hammer....and I might have had a few beers in the process. Amazing.
