We have had gallery photo walls in our past few houses.
|Part of Gallery Wall|
At some point, while I was waiting for my kids to make my decisions for me, inspiration struck...A gallery wall on my big, empty, ugly, awkward brick wall. Yesss. (Brick walls can be incredibly cool and urban....this one is too intentional...it's painful...)
|The fireplace is not centered and it drives.me.nuts.|
When my third request to hang pictures on brick produced no results I asked why. Sean was reluctant to put a bunch of holes in our brick wall and I realized that I was thankful that he never showed up with a hammer. Having to place the pictures exactly where I wanted them the first time made me incredibly nervous...and I what if I didn't like it?...there would be a bunch of holes in our brick wall. Not easy to fix...I'm guessing. Details, details.
After some begging and false confidence (on my part) in how awesome it would look, Sean began to research alternatives to nails in brick. Thank goodness he did! He found these:
They clip to the brick and support up to 25lb. I was skeptical because the word "clip" doesn't conjure up an image of strength, but they are magic. I hung all the frames in about 10 minutes. 10 minutes. (See B still watching a TV show on the ottoman?..10 minutes!) And nothing has fallen off yet.
|Boom. Close up.|
