Ever since we moved into our first home in April, I’ve been dying to get things on the walls. We’ve been painting a room at a time and trying to add our personalities to this house. We have also been drowning in all the paperwork, bills, and mail that come with purchasing a home and moving! This organizational gallery wall is the perfect solution for both! It’s a place to get a little more organized but also add pops of color and personality to a room.
I’m a really indecisive person, so I wanted something I could easily change and move around. So each part of my gallery wall is attached to the wall using 3M Command products. When we were renting these saved us! It was so nice to not have to worry about filling holes during such a busy and stressful time. After gathering all the pieces I wanted to hang, I laid them out on the floor to figure out an arrangement before attaching 3M Picture Hanging Strips to the back of each item.
The white picture frame and blue/white square tile (it’s a dry-erase board) turned my mail organization center into something nice to look at! They’re part of a brand new Command Decor line and I can’t wait to show you how fun and easy they are to use! Here’s what the back of the base piece looks like. First you attach one (included) Command strip to the middle of your base. Then remove the backing and stick to your wall. Yup. That little green piece of awesomeness is a LEVEL! Seriously genius, you guys!
Follow the directions included for attaching the base to the wall, and then get ready for the fun part! Each tile has a powerful magnet that attaches easily to the base. Since each tile is the same size, you can interchange tiles with different designs and functions to create the perfect gallery wall!
There are tons of designs and styles to choose from, including photo frames in black and white. I love how they add dimension with the thickness of the base. You can also add a riser that allows you to overlap two tiles.
For the first time, my indecisiveness wasn’t a problem when putting together this gallery wall! It only took a few seconds to change things around until I found my favorite. I love that I can change them around or add more designs anytime I feel like a change.
Once I decide on some categories for sorting the mail, I’ll add vinyl labels to each of the galvanized tins. My basket is perfect for holding things that need to be returned or mailed out. I’m so happy to have a solution to my piles of mail that usually take over the kitchen counter!
3M Command Decor tiles can be found exclusively on Amazon (affiliate links included in this post.) You really need to check out the other 30+ designs! There are some gorgeous blues, a collection of photography, chalkboards, and black & white tiles.
