DIY Gallery Wall

There, I said it!
I have been in love,
with this material for about….7 years now.
It all began when I was living in Colorado and I became a stay at home mom.
Money was tight & I was VERY bored with the store bought art out there.
So I began making art from MDF & eventually began selling it on etsy.
They say
“necessity is the mother of invention.”
It is true, it sometimes forces you to think outside the box.
Which is a good thing:)!
Like I have said before,
I really do try to wait until inspiration hits to start a project.
Even though it bothers me to see things unfinished,
I would rather wait & enjoy the process than rush through it
not be happy.
So my blank, bare & boring hallway walls finally
got a face lift.
Thanks to MDF, some inspiration, creativity and
a modest budget of $36, yup 36!
I was able to create this cute,fun & unique gallery wall of my boys.


This project was easy,
the hardest part was cutting the wood!
The next post will be a full tutorial.
