I went to Pinterest and looked up DIY Gallery Wall. I was most attracted to the simplest of walls, nothing with a range of picture sizes, and I also was very much drawn to canvas prints to framed ones.
So with that, we had a direction of our Gallery Wall, now we needed to tackle the difficult part. Filtering through the 7 million photos I had of my family trying to choose just 3. Literally, this took forever! Many many nights of looking for the perfect trio and a few moments of throwing in the towel…
“I just can’t do this anymore, you pick Sam! – no wait! I take that back! Just remember how difficult this is for me and when I finally choose you will agree they’re perfect!”
Once I chose the winning trio, I hit up BestCanvas.ca and started to get to work on deciding a product I wanted to have them printed on and a size. With so many choices between printing them on canvas, acrylic, metal (how cool would that be?!) and even forex (for those walls with very limited load-bearing support). BestCanvas.ca truly has it all, and at the best prices too!
We ended up going with a 20 x 30 canvas and added the XXL Wooden Frame which gives more of a true gallery feel to them I had them put a stretched edge on my pictures which I feel gives the perfect profile to the Gallery Wall. I still can’t get over how brilliant they look!
This little corner of the house is mine, as it’s where I do all my work. I had been dreaming about what it “could be” when BestCanvas.ca reached out. You know the feeling when the stars align and you think – if this isn’t a sign I don’t know what is. That was this moment.
I took the sign and WE ran with it. Enlisted in the hot husband to help with all the drilling and hammering, which I can totally do but I would prefer not to because it also comes along with precise measuring and fractions. And that stuff just frightens me.

We purchased the wall sconces and battery powered puck lights from Amazon, because TikTok made me do it. However we also did not have any electricity running through this wall and we were not about to hire any trades for what I knew could be an affordable DIY project. After that we bought the wall sconce, cut the wires free, stuck in a battery powered puck light where the bulbs should’ve gone and drilled it into the wall. MIC. DROP.
The space has changed completely with an easy (and affordable) DIY Gallery Wall. It took us 4 hours to choose a trio of pictures, 5 minutes to upload them to the site and place our order, under a week for delivery, and 35 minutes to get up on the wall.
BEST. DECISION. EVER.
