It's done and I love it!!
This is the first gallery wall I've ever done and I was scared . . . really sceeered! I didn't want it to look too cluttered or messy.
I was going to put a large clock in the center but as you can see, I changed my mind. ha ha!
I am sooo glad I used paper templates before putting any holes in the wall. Handyman Hubby is glad too. : )
Here is a look at the whole library . . .
All I can say is that I love this room! It is totally me. I smile every time I walk by. Sometimes I just stop and look . . . and soak it all in.
Now it may look finished but there are a few more things to do in here. Handyman Hubby already attached the bookcases together and we had a piece of MDF cut for the top. I need to paint it then the trim can be added. I have a few little touches I'd like to add and then she'll be done!
Here are all the gallery wall details . . .
DIY Artwork - you can click here to see what I did.
Subway Art - I stole these from my family room (now my Ikea shelves are empty!)
Letter "S" - Homegoods on clearance for $7.
Family Sign - Was hanging in my kitchen (now I have an empty area in there!)
Metal House Number Sign - I won this from A Pocket Full Of Blue and Ramsign several months ago.
Metal Collage Frame - This was my Mother's Day gift last year (2011) and I didn't know what to do with it. It has been sitting in my basement since May. It fits perfectly in this spot.
2 Black Frames - I already had the frames. I put an old map in one and Jake's pawprints in the other.
Just for fun, let's look back when this was a dining room that we never used.
Wow! What a difference!
I'm off to paint some
