A Nice Supply For Gallery Wall Frames (And A Peek At The Framed Art work For The Dwelling Fitness center)

If you happen to’ve been round right here some time, you understand I’m a giant fan of gallery partitions. And customarily, as a result of I’m a perfectionist, I like symmetry, and I like issues to look neat and tailor-made, I choose the sort of gallery wall the place every little thing is similar measurement, framed in the identical body, and hung in a grid.

I offer you Exhibit A, our entryway…

And Exhibit B, the water closet space of our rest room…

I hadn’t actually thought-about the paintings I’m including to the entry wall of the house gymnasium a “gallery wall”, however I suppose it truly is. It’ll be six framed photos hung in a grid, similar to the chicken photos within the entryway.

So after having the photographs printed in an 11″ x 14″ measurement at CVS (one hour images for nearly quick gratification!), I headed to Michael’s to search for frames. I do know IKEA has actually good costs on frames, however we don’t have an IKEA in Waco. The closest one to me is simply exterior of Austin, so about an hour-and-a-half away. I’ve solely been there as soon as. 🙂

So my go-to is Michael’s. They virtually all the time have frames on sale. I wanted six 16″ x 20″ frames with a mat for 11″ x 14″ photos. That’s a reasonably tall order. They virtually by no means have that many of 1 body in inventory. After trying to find some time, I lastly discovered the proper frames…

These are the Dwelling by Studio Decor Pure Walnut Stain 11″ x 14″ Body with Mat, and within the retailer, they had been purchase one, get one 50% off. However simply as I anticipated, they didn’t have sufficient. There have been solely two within the retailer, so I received my telephone out, discovered the body on the Michael’s web site, and purchased 4 extra.

I purchased the 2 that they’d within the retailer, introduced them residence, and stained the frames. I actually cherished the pure shade of the frames, and they might look stunning in one other room. However for our residence gymnasium, I would like darkish walnut to match my walnut WaterRower. So utilizing Behr oil-based stain in Darkish Walnut, I gave every body a fast coat of stain.

The frames took the stain superbly. I assumed they might as a result of the wooden of the body didn’t really feel prefer it had any kind of protecting coating on it. I didn’t even must sand earlier than staining. I simply eliminated the protecting wrap, eliminated the glass and mat, and began staining.

And right here’s how the primary two turned out.

I like these prints (you will discover them right here), and I believe they’ll tie in properly with the remainder of the black and walnut all through the room.

However right here’s what I actually wished to share with you. Later that night, after I had already stained the 2 frames I purchased, I pulled up my Michael’s order on my laptop computer to make sure that my order went by way of appropriately. And that’s once I seen this on the backside of the display screen…

That’s the very same body that I purchased, besides that I purchased mine individually. And I even purchased them on sale! However take a look at that worth!!

I purchased mine on sale for $33.74 every. That’s $202.44 for six frames. And once more, that’s a sale worth. However that very same precise body is available in a “professional pack” of six frames for $121.44. And that’s not a sale worth. {That a} common worth of $20.24 per body when bought in a professional pack.

I don’t know why I forgot that Michael’s has these professional pack presents on their web site! I discovered and purchased professional pack frames for the wall within the water closet of our rest room. And but, I utterly forgot about them this time round. And due to that, even shopping for these frames “on sale” (ha!), I ended paying $80 greater than I might have with their professional pack.

Had I not already stained the frames, I might have taken them again, canceled my on-line order, and bought a professional pack. However it was too late.

So I simply wished to cross that data alongside to y’all. Michael’s doesn’t promote professional packs of all of their frames. However that is the second time I’ve been within the retailer, discovered a body that I actually like, and found that they arrive in professional packs, bought solely on their web site, at costs which can be far decrease costs than even their sale costs on the person frames.

If you happen to’re on the lookout for frames for a gallery wall, I recommend trying there first.
