There’s something about the crispness of a perfectly symmetrical gallery that evokes just the right mix of modern and traditional. I love this chic, yet pleasantly casual clipboard gallery. When hanging art above a couch, it will be most visually pleasing when about 2/3 the couch’s width. For example, a 60 inch couch should have a 40 inch wide piece (or collection of pieces). Also, the lowest point of the art should be no higher than 8 inches above the top of the couch.

This may feel a bit low at first (it did to me), but it proves to have the best balance with most ceiling heights.

Nailing up the clipboards was a breeze and the whole project was finished in less than 30 minutes. While being super quick, it’s at the same time sort-of never ending in that we will always be swapping and perfecting the mementos we have on display.

TOTAL COST: $15.79 for 10 clipboards at $1.49 a piece
PS: I used regular ol’ finishing nails, but these would be awesome. Prettiest nails ever!
