Gallery Wall on a Saturday Afternoon!

 Gallery Wall Complete!

If you read my post, Time for a Gallery Wall? then you will know that I have been wondering what to do with this rather large wall at the end of our living room.
This is feeling like a big risk, nails, multiple nails are going in to this wall.  Not everyone around here is sure about my decision but hey, it is only a wall...right? is how it went...

The Before!!
The process began this way, assembling all the pieces of art that I had to work with.  I threw in a mirror as well.

I was not sure where to place the mirror even though I had my layout already conceived on the floor.  Lighting was such an issue.

With the addition of each piece I got more and more excited about the potential results!

At this point there felt like there was no turning back on my arrangement...but still loving it.
Almost done!
Et Voila!  Still lots of room to add in more artwork but it adds such a beautiful touch of warmth to the room that you want to be there.

Now an inspirational spot to read!

The after shot.

So, although, this felt like a risk, everybody seems  happy! I think the kitchen reno, which felt like an even bigger risk put them at ease....or made them decide that I was a run-away horse!!

A tantôt!

  2. Thanks Grace. I too had been thinking about that but constantly worrying that it would look kinda junky? I think the decision to buy the mirror really helped me to have a clear starting point. Anyway, I am happy with the results.
