TODAY Show contributor and Washington Post columnist Elizabeth Mayhew shows you how to curate and create a gallery wall with a mix of framed art, wall decor, sculptures, and more!
Start with your biggest item and work around it! Place the anchor point on the left side of the wall and start filling in from there.
2. Arrange your items on the ground
