One of my very favorite parts of my daughters Mermaid Room is the Gallery Wall. When redoing her room I had one whole wall that was bare. I had brainstormed several ideas until I decided on a Gallery Wall. And I KNEW I needed to use the amazing frames I’ve seen from Cut It Out. VOTING for the Cricut Design Space Star is NOW LIVE! I hope you’ll take a moment to quickly vote for my room via the Cricut Facebook Page!
I love the shapes, the sizes, the double-frame option and how customizable the Cut It Out Frames are. They are made from MDF and are of high quality.
Once I received the frames, I followed the instructions that were included for painting them. I used a foam roller and acrylic paint. It took me about 1 hour to paint all the frames. I let them dry overnight and painted a second coat. After letting them dry for two hours, I brought them up to my daughters.
I tried out several different layouts on the floor of her room. Once I chose the layout I wanted, I carefully measured everything out so that it fit the space I wanted. I used a pencil to mark the wall for each frame and then used 3M Velcro Command Strips to adhere the frames to the wall. I love using the strips because it makes it super simple to get the frame in place without having to measure to the exact nail hole, etc. Once I got the first frame in place, I re-checked my measurements for the second frame, made certain they were right and hung that one and continued on down the line. Hanging the frames took all of 10 minutes.
I’m sure people will ask, so here are the frames I received:
The one with the “We love you more than there are fishes in the sea” Print is the 11×14 Grace Oval
The “Mermaid Crossing” Print frame is a 5×7 Preston
The Mermaid Frame is a 5×7 Balboa
The Whale Specimen Art Frame is an 8×10 Newport
The “ABC I Love You Print” is an 8×10 Brooklyn Double Layer
Don’t you love all of the items I put IN the frames?
The mermaid and the whale specimen art I created with my Cricut Explore and cardstock. Super simple to make and I love how cute they look.
The other three are printables that I designed and have made available as free downloads below.
This is so fun! I love the different heights for the decorations – makes sense to have it lower for her! Nice work, mama!
What a fun gallery wall for a mermaid room!
Do you know of anywhere else we can get those frames? I went to the link provided and they show no porducts??
The notice on the Cut It Out website reads: Cut It Out will be closed for a period of time to allow us to move into a new facility. Our current facility has been sold, and our new facility is not yet completed so we need to close until the new facility is completed. Unfortunately the timing was not what we had hoped for, but if you have a PENDING order with us we will be sure to fulfill your order before we close. Our plan is to open the new facility and unveil our new website before the end of the year. We are excited for the changes that are happening and look forward to our new facility, new website, and new products.
So it looks like they will be back, which is awesome because I love their stuff. I would recommend searching Etsy for now. I think you’ll be able to find custom mdf frames there.
Hi! I’m redoing my daughter’s room in a mermaid theme. I’d love to know where you got the cut file for the mermaid. I have a Silhouette and this would look great in her room. Thanks!
I have the Cricut and that was a Cricut Design Space image.
