My Gallery Wall




Yesterday I finally did my living room gallery wall. I wish the light was better, but it is dark and rainy and stormy outside. 





I probably should have stopped at some point and finished the rest today, but once I get started, I'm fairly unstoppable until it is done. 



I wish I didn't have to have that lamp on. I think you would get the overall look in a much better light. But it was that or quasi-darkness with this weather.

Aim I pleased with it? Pretty much. I had a box I wanted up there to store a few pretties in. But it kept falling down. So finally I took it down and replaced it with something else. 

I did use the putty you put behind paintings and such to hold them in place. I just hate when things are crooked.




What advice would I give after completing my first (and perhaps only) gallery wall? Well, I don't know about others, but I pretty much started in the center and worked outward. 

I have to admit. I stared at this wall for weeks before I got up the nerve to start it. I patched holes, knowing I was going to make many more. Things got moved because they weren't lined up properly. More holes to fill and to paint over. 

But...it is done.

  1. Your wall is very attractive and thought provoking. It really shows your many interests, especially the beach idea.
    Your round oak table looks lovely with the pretty doily and white candles. I like the candles in your "fireplace". too.
    You were brave to start this new project. You have so many interesting items to put on display.

  3. You worked hard, it looks like you had to get out a ladder to put up the high ones. How did that go with your ankle?

  6. It looks great Brenda. I like all the different things you included...especially those fern plates. I also like that you went all the way to the ceiling with it.

  7. Love that you went all of the way up to the ceiling. It looks great! Incentive to work on mine a bit. I change it seasonally so this new idea of yours is a winner!

  8. Brenda it looks super cute! I love that you used he whole wall up to the ceiling. I personally think gallery walls are hard to do especially if you're using different things vs a wall of all frames even though they are different sizes type arrangement. You did a great job!

  9. Brenda,

    Love the variety of different 'art', from prints and plates to shelves and signs! A great source of entertainment for all who visit, I'm sure! So very cozy, indeed, even without the 'proper' light, your gallery wall is bright and cheery!

  10. LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! Looks so comforting. What is the name of the color on your walls? It looks like a nice neutral color with a hint of yellow?

  11. Very eye-catching because of the wonderful variety...my eye goes first to the starfish then the washboard and just keeps traveling. I like this very much...

  12. It looks great! I've been staring at the wall going up my stairs for 2 years now knowing I want to do a gallery wall but I haven't gotten up the nerve. I really think this fall/winter it will happen!

    ReplyDelete
  13. It looks fantastic. Love the wash boards! I agree w/you, you sometimes have to just accumulate a few things you think might work on the wall and play with them on a table or the floor to see what transpires! But it's wonderful, Brenda!

  14. It looks great, Brenda! That was a big job well done. I'm with you- I hate it when thing hang crookedly. lol xo Diana

  15. I love that you've got all your favorite things to look at inside when the skies are gray outdoors! The cute primitive wall cabinet and the box with egg cups add dimension to your wall. You did a great job incorporating different elements into your gallery wall! The wall I'm working on is much smaller and I'm finding it's harder than it looks to design one!

  16. Looks fantastic! I knew you could do it!!

  17. That took a lot of work Brenda, but the end result was definitely worth it. I keep waiting for the sun to come back out so I can take some photos.....and waiting, and waiting........xo Laura

  18. I love it Brenda. My gallery wall is still in progress. I am thrifting small pictures for it here and there. I measure nothing but it all works out somehow.

  19. It looks wonderful! I like the combination of items you chose. Everything looks so cozy. Love that coffee table too, and the little bench in the fireplace. Just beautiful!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. It really does look nice and you can sit back and enjoy it now! I wouldn't know where to begin! Enjoy your afternoon!

  21. I like it!
    I have a small gallery wall in my bedroom...and it was a little hard to do...and the lighting in there is bad too.
    Now that my couch is out of my middle bedroom...I can get back to creating a crafting den. Ha ha ha ha!
    I couldn't decide if I wanted a den or a craft room...so it's going to be both.
    I'm hoping to have a gallery wall in there...I have a little something up my sleeve.
    For your first gallery wall. I think it looks pretty. :)
    Stay warm and dry!

  26. You did it! It looks great. I bet you enjoy looking at it now that it's all done. I also noticed the rustic wood birdhouse on the floor beneath the gallery wall. I really like that piece too!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oops! I meant the birdhouse sitting on the red bench.

  28. I love your gallery wall, Brenda. It's fabulous!! I think taking the plunge to have at least one gallery wall in your home brings so much warmth and coziness to the room.

  31. I love it Brenda. I have been gathering things for one over our sofa in the living room. You have given me a few ideas to think outside the box with. Great job.

  32. Looks great! You are braver than I. I was going to do a wall of framed mirrors on my stairwell wall few years ago, but decided I would never get them all straight. :-D

  33. It looks great. Everything spaced so well and nothing crooked. Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Your wall screams YOU! Very nice, and I love all the different elements you used. Gallery walls aren't as easy as some might think. Your wall looks great!

  42. Brenda, it looks wonderful! It makes the room look so warm and cozy. I bet you enjoyed sitting there, admiring your handiwork on that stormy day!

  47. Your gallery wall looks wonderful, Brenda! I know how hard these are to do, the positioning and re-positioning and getting the balance right. You did such a good job, and everything is straight too!

  48. I love your vintage wash boards--they look great in amongst your other things. Adding the starfish and shells to them is brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  49. you did a great job! i think it's all very lined up well and balanced. i know all to well about filling and refilling holes...mostly because i am always changing my mind on where to hang things. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I really like your gallery wall, it is wonderful. It incorporates so many different elements but they are all related to each other, too. I don't have the room for a gallery wall, but one day I will and I will pin this so I have a guide when I need it.
    An excellent inspirational piece, thank you!
    Hugs, Cindy

  51. Looks fantastic! I am collecting things now for a gallery wall in my bedroom. Hope mine turns out half as well as yours. i like your idea of starting from the center out, and the proof is on your wall.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like it. I think I can honestly say that my whole home is a gallery wall. There's not an inch of space left to put much else. :) Tammy
