Where to buy gallery wall frames: IKEA, Amazon, Crate and Barrel, even Dollar Tree!

06 February 2019

Hello! I shared the updated gallery wall last week but didn't get to share some of my favorite frame options (with commentary, of course!) if you are on the hunt to create a memory wall of your own. To break down the cost of ours:

Frames from Walmart for about $7 each = $105
Gallery Mats from Blick Art $107 (but in all fairness, I had 3 extra mats since they came in pack of 6)
Total: around $200

Our wall was inspired by these frames that Studio McGee hung in their Modern Mountain home. I loved the sleek frames with the larger mat!

Another option for great mats is a wedding signature mat that gives more white surround for a sleek, museum like look.

Let's look at some other options:

The $14.99 Ribba frames from IKEA are hard to beat but listen to this: they discontinued the square ones pictured here!! So, so sad about that.  The only square ones I now see are the Hovsta 9".  I also love this grid gallery wall is from Toria Erskine  Total of the frames for this wall would be $135 if they still offered the square but you could use other frames they now have to create a different size. 

Here is another classic Ribba collection from @marissa.lindsey on Instagram

This wall from Shay Cochrane is perfection but the price is steep -- these are the Mercer Slim from Framebridge and at $85 a pop, this wall would set you back $1,360 *gulp* But to be fair, this does include the print and they do have coupon codes.

Don't you love this wall from Whitney Clarke on Instagram? These Icon Black frames are from Crate and Barrel, to have eight as pictured would cost $400.

DIY Playbook shared this awesome grid wall and the frames (with mats) are from Michael's for $14 each. If you used a coupon on top of that you could probably get this wall for under $100

I also love this wood 16X20 matted to 8X10 for $20

This black set has nine 12X12 pieces with the white mats for only $50 and it comes with hanging template. Look at the pictures in the reviews to get a better idea of the scale.

Amazon has the white frames available as well -- the whole set for $57

If you want a light wood option, these 16X20 (with mat!) are only $20 at Target, but add them to your cart and watch for a sale! They go buy one, get one 50% off quite often.

and sometimes you can make the dollar store work for you too -- remember my $10.56 gallery wall?? That was 7 years ago in our Virginia home! But you can still buy the $1 frames and then get some great mats to go inside.  

I hope this has been helpful -- I searched high and low when I was putting our wall together so I wanted to save you some time. Good luck!
