DIY Modern Gallery Wall

Here I go again. I once again redid my gallery wall. I have to say I am dying over how much I love it right now! I have done a bit of my own artwork which was new for me and I have also made a few new printables that I am loving right now.

To start this DIY Modern gallery wall redo I first painted the wall. The paint color I used was a color that I mixed on my own. I got the color mixed at Home Depot. I think it is a great color. It’s a great tone of grey and just enough of a grey color. I also spray painted quite a few different frames I had already. I also added a gold touch to a few of the frames.

With most of the frames I used Kilz Primer and Rust-Oleum semi-gloss Spray Paint to get a clean white look.




I hand painted the watercolor paintings and I love the pop of color it adds.DIY Modern Gallery Wall + Free Printables | www.classyclutter.net

I painted the dot artwork with watercolor paint from Michael’s and I painted it on thick painter’s paper and cut it down to size to put in the frame that I had from Pottery Barn. The frames were black and I spray painted them with my favorite gold spray paint.



I framed a bunch of free printables.  I created several of them so feel free to download them below.

I framed the Find Joy in the Journey in one of my new favorite frames from Cut it Out Frames. It is called the “Parker” and it came unfinished. I just painted it white and frame the printable. I love how it turned out!

    I love this!! I downloaded the “Choose Happy” print and “find joy in the journey” print and I’d like to print them 11×14, will this now allow me to print that size? Or is there somewhere I can purchase the print in a bigger size? Thanks so much!!

    Thank you so much for the free printables! I just hung the “choose happy” one in my gallery wall, it was just what it needed.

    I printed the find joy in the journey in 8×10 and it came out slightly pixelated. Is there a way to correct this so I could print a larger size like 11×14?

    Thanks for the prints!

    What font are you using for… much love, savannah?? I think it’s the same as choose happy and find joy in the journey.

    Looks awesome…thanks for the printables! Do you mind me asking the name of the font on the “choose happy” and “find joy in the journey” prints?
