I'm building a wall...

ok, not REALLY, but sort of! ;) I'm in the middle of putting together a gallery wall for my living room.
This was the wall before: (taken right after we painted a few months ago...purple is a Valspar color--sweet plum I think)


That blank wall has been staring at me everyday for months. I knew I wanted something fun and dramatic on it...but just wasn't sure what. Then one day, I came across this image on a blog:

(I have no idea what blog I found this on--if it is yours, please LMK and I'll give you credit!)

And BINGO! I knew what that huge wall needed! A gallery wall! It was brilliant! So I started collecting thrifted frames and interesting objects to hang. And then I spray painted them aqua or turqoise. I've had a pile of things sitting in the corner of my living room for a few weeks now, so yesterday I decided it was time to just start hanging them, even though I don't have quite enough yet.

I'm happy with how it's coming along though! And it really makes the purple wall pop now. I can't wait to find more things to hang! I definitely want a large letter P too somewhere in the mix. What do you think?


Now that I'm looking at it 'from afar' I think everything needs to be smushed closer is such a big wall, I think I was trying to take up too much area with not I may be filling nail holes and painting this week, lol. Oh well, live and learn! I still love the idea, and think it works...just needs to be executed right.

Oh, and I have to share these sweet little birdies that a friend sent me! They are actually salt and pepper shakers from Pier 1--they are $3 for the set! Aren't they sweet!? I love them so much! Thanks Jenn!
