Shells by the seashore...

I am all about some fantastic artwork in your home...I am even more all about *economical* artwork...

I am on the gallery wall bandwagon, I just love how you can take up as much space on a wall with as many things as you want! Brilliant.

But lately I've been drawn to the more organized and uniform gallery walls...

So when I saw this book at Barnes and Nobles for a whopping $14.98...

Just filled to the gills with be-u-tiful prints like this...


I was just thinking what a *GORGEOUS* gallery wall you could make and not break the bank!

What do you think? Are you a fan of the seaside theme?

*Kelly, if you are reading, I already know your answer!!! Heheheh*

Go for it! I just hung mine. After rearranging it, no joke, 10 times. Mine are all odd sizes so its more random. But I'm pretty happy.

Hurry up and show us some pics :)

what a great idea! My kids' bathroom is beach theme (I think that's what we miss the most from living on the East Coast). I just might copy you...

Great book and price! It would make a lovely gallery wall. And to answer your question hotel living is just ok. I miss having my DVR and my things already .

I adore a Gallery Wall. Now I am going to go stalk my Barnes and Nobles to see if they have that same book. Fabulous idea!

What a great book find! I love the more structured gallery walls that take up the entire wall like the one in that last photo above the sofa!

I love gallery walls! You can showcase so much, without it looking like a horrible hodgepodge. It's gonna look great!

I love the gallery wall look but I like the collage look better...if that makes since. When I did mine I measured out the area on the wall that I would be placing the frames in then I measured out the area on the floor and then I played with the arragement and once I found what I liked I then hung them on the wall.

And that book looks great and would be a fun and affordable way to do a gallery. You definately have the wall space for it.
