Gallery Wall

 We have a large wall in our dining room and we have no large pieces of art. I knew I needed some way to fill the space.
I found all of these picture frames at Goodwill. They were only $1.50 each! They were all a light wood color so I spray painted them black. 
The first picture frame on the left is holding a dot drawing done by my 5 year old. I just scanned the picture and printed it off on photo paper. I found my photo paper at Dollar Tree months ago. So that was a great deal! 
I removed the glass in the two chevron picture frames. I covered the board with left over chevron fabric from my couch pillows. I secured the fabric with painter's tape in the back. I can easily change the material out if I decide to change the colors in the room. I bought these two clips at Wal-mart for $1.88.  I hot glued them to the fabric. Now I can change the pictures out easily, or even use them as brag board for my kids artwork.
The middle photo is from The Vintage Lemon, she has a ton of adorable state printables. The best part is that they are free! 
I bought the photo mat boards at Joann's. With a coupon it was around $5 for four. I think they make the frames look nicer.
This is my wall art for around $15. Our past two family photo shoots are still on CD. I will eventually replace these photo's with more recent ones of our family. 

Have a great Day!
