Gallery Wall Update (& Keepsake Review)

You may have seen some updates on my Instagram stories, but I've been working on slowly re-doing the gallery wall in our living room. I love gallery walls. I think I have four of them in different parts of our house. I liked the one in our living room, but after almost 5 years, I was ready for a change. Here's what it looked like before:

I wanted something a little lighter and more my style. I had been thinking about changing it for probably a year, but just wasn't sure how to do it, what to use, etc. I had an old window that I wanted to use as the centerpiece, but wasn't sure what else to incorporate.

When Keepsake reached out to me about reviewing their service, I knew it was the kick I needed to get started on changing up this gallery wall. Keepsake is an app that allows you to get your photos printed, framed, and delivered to your door. So, I downloaded the free app, chose a photo and frame, and submitted my order (shipping is always free--score!). So easy. It even tells you if the photo you selected doesn't have a high enough resolution for the frame size you want. Here's what my finished print and frame look like:

When I got my framed print in the mail, I knew I wanted to make it part of my new gallery wall. I got to work collecting things I already had, swapping things out of different frames, and laying things out on the floor to figure out how I wanted to hang them. After a lot of debating, I finally started hanging things on the wall. It's definitely not done, as I need to had a few more things and fill in a TON of nail holes, but I'm happy with how it's coming together.

As I said, still not done, but it's getting there. I'm loving the way it's turning out and can't wait to find some new things to add to it!
