Designing a gallery wall with minted {VIDEO}

The idea of creating a gallery wall has always intimidated me. I wasn’t sure how to put together an organized wall of pictures, so it seemed impossible. I was so happy when my friends at minted offered to help me! We decided to team up to make a beautiful gallery wall for my Brooklyn apartment dining room.  I wanted to add a bit of a California feel to my wall. Luckily, minted has no shortage of beautiful art options. From ocean scenes to palm trees, we picked out some real gems. 

Below I'll show you a step by step guide to create your very own gallery wall. You can also watch the video guide as well (with a special appearance by my awesome husband, Aaron Craig)  Sometimes a helper can be super handy!
