So the wall space above the bookshelves were looking a little bare.
So we decided to put in a gallery wall. After a trip to Michael's I decided to go with the Lexington frames they have there.
1. Because they were 50% off and
2. We haven't done a gallery wall with black modern frames yet. So I liked the idea of something new.
A lot of people I talk to are nervous about gallery walls. I love them, I think they are easy and make a huge statement. But I love surrounding myself with things that make me happy... and right now filling these frames with photos of my favorite memories and inspirational quotes.... nothing sounds better than that. I don't put a lot of planning into these. I wish I could tell you I sit down with a plan. I look at the space... and run to the store... I try and concentrate on large frames because, when scrolling pinterest at all hours of the night. The one thing the gallery walls I pin have in common are large frames.
Then I start with my largest frame and just work out from there. One frame at a time.
This past weekend Jerry started putting them up while I would say... "no... a little higher.... no... I don't like that... take that down" for about 3 hours :) He's a good guy :)
The frames are still bare. I need to fill a few of them, but a few I will leave empty because Hudson's baby photos will fill in quite a few of these eventually.
I'm still searching Etsy for some cute personalized prints also.
But here is the reading corner... all filled in with frames.
I might fill in a few more above the chair and bring them down lower. We aren't sure if we want these frames in reach of tiny children though.
I think my favorite part is the animal heads. I think I could fill a whole wall with them if I had enough!
Thanks for stopping by, Cant wait to share the other side of the room!
Getting exciting, Hudson will be here in just 2 short months!
