Luckily, some smart companies have heard our desperate cries and come up with clever ways to make assembling and installing the ultimate gallery wall almost a no-brainer. Before reaching for a hammer, check out the below companies that will help make the entire process much more manageable.>
We’ve already told you about this handy service from West Elm that exists to assist you with hanging curtain rods or mounting flat screen televisions, but we’re really into the convenient fact that they will also install a gallery wall of up to 10 frames for $129.
