my Goodwill gallery wall



We have this bare wall in our kitchen that has driven me crazy for 4 years. I've always wanted to hang pictures but I could never figure out how. I scoured Pinterest for gallery wall inspiration but I didn't want just your basic black frames.

 I loved this gallery wall but I didn't want to spend the money on Organic Bloom frames...or even the knock off ones at Hobby Lobby. It inspired me to be thrifty and make a colorful gallery wall!

I went to Goodwill and found 5 frames for about $25 total. 
Then I hit up Hobby Lobby for some spray paint. I picked these 2 fun colors! 

I got to work spray painting my cheap frames. It took about a gazillion coats of paint, but they eventually were completely covered! 

....SO, our wall is no longer bare. It's not complete, but it looks so much better!
I have a printable I want to add but I need to frame it & a crocheted wedding gift with our name that I have never been able to hang. Who needs Pottery Barn when you have Goodwill?!
