Welcome to Frazzled-Free Fridays!
About a year ago, my mother-in-law started cleaning out her storage areas and closets. Super. Less for us to do when they downsize and move. However until this day comes, her clean-out meant her bringing over boxes and bags of my husband’s childhood items to my house.
Part of this loot was his collection of comic books. Now what was I going to do with these well-read, dog-eared, much-loved, not-going-to-make-us-wealthy box of comic book strips?! Enter my superhero-loving preschooler, who was moving into his own room.
See how I donned my figurative cape and mask to make him a simple superhero gallery wall.

simple superhero gallery wall
Do you have a superhero-lover or Comic Con-goer in your life? Grab some inexpensive, or in my case some well-cherished, comic books. Find your favorite scenes, grab your supplies and put together a very easy but very simple superhero gallery wall.
‘Up Up and Away’ Step #1:
Lay out your comic book page onto the sheet of plywood. Determine your measurements. (Ours measure 8″x11.25″.) Cut the plywood with a Skil saw.
‘I Fight For Truth’ Step #2:
If desired, paint the plywood. We went with colors I have throughout my house.
‘Holy [Decorating] Batman’ Step #3:
Once dry, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the back of the comic book page. Place onto the plywood. Smooth out. Paint on a layer of Mod Podge over the comic page.
‘It’s Clobbering Time’ Step #4:
When ready, place on wall. We laid them out in two simple rows (listening to my 4 year old superhero sidekick’s request for which superhero should go where on the wall) and used a carpet nail to secure them to the wall.
You don’t need super strength to put together this simple superhero gallery wall.
Always remember that with great power comes great decorating!
