Create a gallery wall the simple way with adhesive strips
gallery walls are a firm favourite here at Real Homes hq – there’s no better way to transform a blank, boring space, as DIY instagrammer Medina grillo illustrates in her sunny living room. But if you’re thinking, ‘that’s an awful lot of nails to hammer into my perfectly painted walls,’ fear not. there’s a brilliant solution that even the most diy-phobic person can nail (no pun intended).
adhesive strips can be applied directly to your frame like tape. Ensure your walls are clean and dry, apply the strips to all four corners of the frame, press down and place into position on your wall. hold for 30 seconds, then remove the frame, leaving the strips on your wall, and wait one hour. reattach the frame and it’s good to hold up to 7.2kg. and if one of your pictures is slightly out of place? simply peel off the strips and reposition. No one will ever know...
