Picture ledge or gallery wall?

last month
last modified: last month

We have 8 medium sized gold-framed oils from DH's parent's house that we want to hang. I love a good gallery wall but frankly, I'm intimidated by putting one together. Many examples look cluttered or messy to me and my eye invariably goes directly to the frame that is slightly askew or off balance. I've considered using picture ledges to make the symmetry and leveling easier but wonder if that would look too much like a store display.

Do you have any advice or observations about either choice?

Love this wall but I had to look through quite a few examples to find one that I really liked.
