DIY: A Modern Glam Gallery Wall

Dormify //

Pair your new gallery wall with some acrylic and gold accents and a pop of pink for a gilded look with a touch of glamour.

Step 1

First, measure on the wall and mark with a pencil where you would like to place your ledge. We centered the end of each ledge with the center of the desk.

Step 2–5

  • Next, prepare your ledge. Separate the adhesive strips from the packaging, remove the red liners, and apply one strip to each mounting base.
  • Now, remove the black liners. Carefully place the ledge where you made your measurements. Use a handy level app on your phone to ensure the ledge is sitting level and press the entire ledge to the wall for 30 seconds.
  • Next, prepare your ledge. Separate the adhesive strips from the packaging, remove the red liners, and apply one strip to each mounting base.
  • Now, remove the black liners. Carefully place the ledge where you made your measurements. Use a handy level app on your phone to ensure the ledge is sitting level and press the entire ledge to the wall for 30 seconds.

Step 6–8

  • To ensure that the adhesive holds, slide ledge up to remove the ledge from the mounting bases and press each base firmly to wall for 30 seconds.
  • Wait 1 hour and slide ledge down until it snaps into place.
  • Once all four ledges are in place, it’s time to accessorize! Take your favorite prints and art pieces, and place them evenly across the ledge. Try overlapping a frame with a print or different art sizes to bring dimension to your gallery wall.
