DIY IKEA GALLERY WALL
IKEA GALLERY WALL
I’ve recently been bookmarking loads of prints from Desenio – which is a big favourite amongst Instagrammers and Bloggers to find those Scandi & Nordic style prints in a wide range of colours and themes
Plus they always have 20%-30% off discount codes flying around, so I was going to order a few but then I watched Ashley Brooke’s YT video on her own DIY Gallery Wall – and how she bought loads of cheap frames, and used editorial magazine prints to fill them up with – so this is my attempt at that!
RAID YOUR MAGAZINE STACKS
I don’t know about you, but I have a thing for buying those expensive magazines and hoarding them for ages!
I just think if you’ve paid £3-£4 for them, they are worth keeping around for future inspo, general coffee table books and insta flat lays
So I had a good flick through them all, and ripped out any pages which I thought would fit in my frames, and that would go well with the colour scheme I’m looking for at the moment
“Ripping out magazine prints is such a quick, and inexpensive way to update a gallery wall. The print quality is just as good, and the content and imagery are already styled – so you’re all ready to go!”
Magazines work really well for the smaller frames, but now I’m looking at buying those massive coffee tables books, so I can fill up my larger frames
I think I’m going to trawl through Amazon and see what I can find – if you have any recommendations, then please let me know!
MIX & MATCH PRINTS WITH TEXT
Whether it’s fashion branding or some inspirational quotes, I think it looks really good to break up the gallery wall with some text inbetween them – this Saint Laurent print was just from a magazine, but there’s no reason why you couldn’t just download your fav quotes and print them off yourself

Before I hang mine up, I’m going to fill up my bigger Ikea frames so there’s abit of dimension to the wall, but I’m really liking it so far – and it only took me abut half an hour to do this! x
