DIY Gallery Wall & Canon PIXMA Photo All-in-One Printer Giveaway

DIY Gallery Wall on

We bought our house soon after we were married, which was a little over 5 years ago. I’ve wanted a gallery photo wall in our front living room since the day we moved in. I’ve talked about it for years, but life happened and I never got around to it.

Well, we finally got sick of staring at our blank wall and created our own DIY Gallery Wall! YAY!


We used our Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer to print most of the photos on our wall. The Canon PIXMA prints beautiful photos, up to 8.5″ x 11″ and sharp documents with amazing quality. It has six individual ink tanks, including gray ink for black & white photos. And if one tank runs out, you don’t have to replace them all. You only replace the color tank that runs out. Nice, huh?


The printer is very easy to use. We didn’t have to spend hours setting it up. We pulled it out of the box, plugged it in, and we were ready to go! The paper is easy to insert, it prints pictures quickly, and it is quiet too!


One of our favorite features is that we can print photos straight from our iPhones. We take A LOT of pictures with our phones so it’s nice to be able to print them without sending them to our computer first. The PIXMA Printing Solutions (PPS) app easily lets you print and scan photos or documents from your mobile device. With the cloud printing function you can print directly from select online cloud services either at the printer itself or with your mobile device using the free PPS app.


We printed lots and lots of pictures. We couldn’t decide which photos were “wall worthy.” We liked them all!


We finally narrowed it down and put the photos in matted frames from IKEA. I love the photos we decided on, but if we ever want to change the photos, we can easily print new photos at home with our Canon PIXMA printer! We take a lot of pictures so it will be fun to mix up our gallery wall on a regular basis!


This is what our wall looked like before! BORING, I know! I can’t believe we stared at a blank wall for over five years!

This is our wall now! SO much better! Josh strategically hung all of the frames. I am so glad he has patience for these kinds of projects, because I don’t:) He measured everything out on paper and we laid the frames down on our rug to make sure we liked the layout.

We had four larger photos printed at a local photo store and surrounded them with the smaller photos we printed at home. I love the mix of black and white frames.


I love this one of Caleb splashing in the water.


And the photo of him stealing a cookie is classic. Our little cookie monster!

I love walking into our living room and seeing all of our fun photos! Our DIY gallery wall turned out great!

And now for some good news, we are giving away a Canon PIXMA MG7120 Wireless Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer! Yahoo! We loved using our printer to create our gallery wall. I can’t wait to use it for future projects. I know it is going to get a workout this holiday season.

  1. Love your wall! It turned out so good! I love the frames and I NEED that printer! The colors are so vibrant! Thanks for an amazing giveaway! My fingers are crossed!

  2. I’ve gone without a printer for about a year now – and as an amateur scrapbooker, I’d love to have a printer that prints sharp images for scrapbooking and framing pictures! And to be able to print directly from my iPhone – a major plus! I could get so much more scrapbooking done! Even if I don’t win, I may still invest in this printer…

  3. Thank you for the opportunity! A few years ago when Arron Brothers had a buy one get one for 1 cent sale I bought 20 or so frames, they are all empty and in a box in the spare room….baby steps.

  4. Your wall is so beautiful! It may have taken five years, but considering the end result it was definitely worth the wait!! We just moved and I have a feeling it will be a long time before our photo wall is done – especially since our little photo printer died 🙁 Thank you for the opportunity to try and win a new one!

  5. Wow, I really need this. We have lots of blank walls, and we’ve been here about twelve years! Your wall looks great, Caleb is so adorable! Thanks for a great giveaway, maybe I’ll get lucky. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  6. I have been wanting to do a gallery wall for so long. I never can quite master the eclectic look. Your wall looks terrific!

  7. Excellent idea and giveaway! I like taking pictures of things and food more than I do people… but I still would love this printer!

  8. These pictures are adorable and it really does bring a lot of new life to that completely blank space! I really hope I’ll take home that printer for myself AND FILL MY ROOM WITH CAT PICTURES!

  9. Your wall looks incredible. It’s so great to be able to have pictures of everyone you love in one place so you can look at it every day. So many of my family members live states away and I would love to be able to see their faces so often. Great job.

  10. I have been looking for about 30 minutes and I can NOT find the link to enter for the giveaway… I need assistance, please!!!

  11. My husband and I have chosen to start our gallery wall (only took us 10yrs lol) with our kids’ art work. Our son has such an ability for drawing at the age of 11 we decided to display it in frames.
