Gallery Walls We Love

Gallery walls are definitely having a moment. We’re seeing them all over Pinterest and in magazines as one of the hottest design trends in home décor. While the thought of carefully curating the perfect gallery wall can seem daunting, it’s really quite simple! Michaels has 4 exclusive and uniquely designed Gallery Wall Collections with endless possibilities to fill a blank wall and we make it easy as 1-2-3!

A few of our Michaels Makers used our exclusive collections to create gallery walls in their homes and we are in love! See how they’ve used frames, ledges and unique décor to reflect their style.

Farmington Collection

Gallery Wall by LilBlueBoo

Ashley from Lil Blue Boo created a rustic look with modern twist with washed finishes, metal accents and pops of graphic black and white. This collection plays off the “farmhouse chic” trend we are seeing everywhere.

Maker Tip: Use found objects like pieces of nature or vintage pennants in shadow boxes to give your gallery wall character. 

Prints with quotes and sentiments are another key trend that we are loving in home décor. They can be fun, uplifting and even a little playful.

Catalina Collection

Whipperberry-3

Heather from Whipperberry, invites a coastal vibe into her home that is nautical and relaxing with seaside elements.

Maker Tip: Create dimensional décor by layering smaller items into your frames and backing them with fun patterned papers.

She mixes frames with ready-made décor and sweet sentiments that bear reminding to “enjoy the little things”.

Alexandria Collection

Neutral-Gallery-Wall

Crystal from A Pumpkin and a Princess used the Alexandria collection to add a modern feel to her home with neutral tones and organic textures. Gold and antique details give this gallery wall character and a feminine touch.

Maker Tip: Starting on a buffet or mantel, prop décor pieces against the wall and build your gallery wall up from there!

Savannah Collection

Final collage wall Jennifer Rizzo

Jennifer Rizzo‘s gallery wall is the epitome of casual elegance, featuring distressed surfaces and soft hues.

Maker Tip: add a pop of color by masking off some of your frames and dry brushing them with coordinating paints.

5 Ways to Use a Rolling Cart

The mobile rolling cart is a genius invention. It allows you to move your most used items around the home for the ultimate convenience! We’ve seen our fair share of mobile craft carts, but today we’re sharing 5 new ways to style the Lexington rolling cart.

1. Coffee Station Cart

Coffee Stand Cart Coffee Station Cart

Our friends at The Merrythought are after our own hearts with this Coffee Station Cart. It’s perfect for a small kitchen or to roll wheel out when you’re having a get-together.

2. Mobile Flower GardenFlower Garden Cart flower cart

A Pumpkin and a Princess used the Lexington cart as a mobile garden that allows her to bring her house plants out for a little sunshine from time to time.

3. Kitchen Cart

Amy from Homey Oh My thought up the next 3 uses for this rolling cart. Another small kitchen hack is using this cart as a mini pantry for produce and snacks, as well as a space for any knick knacks or extra dishes that would otherwise take up precious counter space.

4. Nightstand

Another small space solution is the bathroom cart. Use it to store your toiletries or as a shower caddy.
