We’ve been working on our home since the day we moved in. It’s gone through a lot of changes and today I was determined to complete something I started long ago! I’ve always loved the look of gallery walls. Go on Pinterest and you’ll see pictures of dozens that I’ll never be able to pull off. Seriously, I should have thought of pinterestfail.com first—have you been to that site before? It’s hilarious and so so true. I go on Pinterest with good intentions but I always fall a little short—either with time, money, creativity or all three!
Here are some walls I was really starting to love:
So, naturally, I turned to Pinterest to also find ideas on how to lay out my gallery wall. This one was my favorite:
Then, I got to work. Here is what our living room looked like before.
You can kind of see that we had a big picture and two sconces. I should take more pics—we have a new lamp, new blankets, table decor, etc. Anyways, back to the wall.
I found a canvas print from Hobby Lobby and as soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to use it in our living room.
Then I just found a few things around the house and started making a mock-up arrangement on the coffee table.
Our initial… a couple of frames… an initial hook from Anthropologie that I bought on clearance a couple years ago… I didn’t have to buy anything new for this wall, which made me REALLY happy but I will need to add to it in the future, I think.
Any suggestions? I’m thinking there needs to be one or two bigger frames and prints to even it all out.
I thought about using this picture (below) but I couldn’t really get it to fit and look right. So, I just put it on the table and I’m keeping it there for now. Or until a kitten decides to knock it over!
Ahhh…. happily ever after
