I recently moved a huge DIY twig sculpture from our Dining Room area to a wall space in our Entry Foyer.  I feel like I keep repeating myself, but I’m looking to lighten and brighten our home.  As much as I loved my twig sculpture, I wanted something new, fresh and lighter feeling.  Today I am sharing my new Clipboard Gallery Wall.

Why use a Clipboard Gallery Wall?

I knew I wanted to incorporate a gallery wall in my home and using simple clipboards seemed like a great idea.  But, how would I ever be able to narrow down the prints I would use?  Introduce the clipboard gallery wall!

What supplies do you need for a Clipboard Gallery Wall?

8 Clipboards
8 Brass Wall Hangers
8 Prints
Laser level (a regular level will work, as well)

Using a clipboard, I could rotate prints and pictures in and out whenever my little heart so desired.  I was smitten with the idea.  I loaded up the kiddo’s and headed to Office Max to buy eight plain clipboards.  At a little under $2 a piece, this is a great inexpensive DIY project.


How do I install a simple Clipboard Gallery Wall?

First, I laid out my basic pattern on the wall with pieces of paper (yes, kiddo #2 did a little coloring on one) and a level to make sure everything was lined up correctly.

Using a level and a measuring tape, slowly the clipboards made their way onto the wall.

We love using these brass wall hangers the best.  I started with regular nails and decided to change them out to the wall hangers.

I was so thrilled to see these eight blank canvas’ waiting to be filled up with prints.  I mean, it is just so simple to hang a clipboard on a wall!
Clipboard Gallery Walls,
I printed a few of my own designs out (check out my Shopify store) and then ordered a few additional ones from my favorite Etsy stores.

 I was like a kid in a candy store as my graphic prints slowly made their way to my wall.

Ah, finally!  They all arrived and I was as happy as a lark.  A wonderful mix of inspirational quotes, hide them in your heart bible verses and fun graphics.
Clipboard Gallery Wall final,
I already am thinking I need a few more clipboards… too many great prints out there!  How many clipboards do you think would fit your space?

  3. Oh wow, love how the wall turned out! And your prints are fabulous!! I’d love for you to share with Life Created Tuesdays link party. This week’s party is now live 🙂

  4. I love this idea, also a great way to display children’s art work in a hallway. I also love quotes, so I see this as an inspirational wall a place to go for scripture or a much needed good thought. Thanks for sharing on Tuesdays With a Twist please come by tomorrow and share again.

    1. Thanks Joyce. I’m really excited to see where these clipboards go each season. Sometimes filled with kid’s art, sometimes scripture, sometimes just beautiful prints!

  6. Coming over from the link at TT&J. Looks great! I did this in our office over the summer and just love. I’m actually adding another row right now (well, I’m short two because I can’t find more clipboards)….but the more the merrier, right?

  7. I have been wanting to do something with clipboards for a while. I love being able to switch out artwork or the kids’ drawings. You made it look so great!

    1. Thanks, Anne! I had wanted the ability to swap things out forever and FINALLY just bit the bullet and went the clipboard route. Totally worth it!
