Hey friends! I’m not sure this deserves a whole post, but I’m gonna write it anyway! HAHA!! I told you a few weeks ago when I shared my DIY art that I wasn’t going to show you where it was going yet. Well, it’s in place and the gallery wall around it is done, so I’m sharing it today!
I love it so!! Gallery walls have stumped me over the years. But, I just keep trying my hand at them, and I think I’m getting better. Just like with anything else in life – in design, practice makes perfect (well, maybe not perfect, but definitely better ;)). Just for reference, here is what this wall looked like before.
Those photos were a gift to my hubby on our 10th anniversary…15 years ago. He loved them! He loves having pictures of family all over our home, and I do as well, I was just ready for something different on that wall. 🙂

I purchase the three word art prints from Hobby Lobby when their wall art was 50% off. A few things I had had my eye on for a while now. The wreath I found in my stash, and is actually three wreath put together with a little wire. A grapevine wreath for the base and a couple of the lambs ear (?) “wreaths” from the Target Dollar Spot added to the top. I love the extra texture it adds to the gallery.
The last piece of the puzzle came in the form of a small rectangular mirror (top left) that I purchased while thrifting quite a while ago. I love using mirrors in decor and I originally purchased this one to use in our built-ins. But, it just didn’t work where I wanted it, so it had sat in my garage forever.

It was just the right size and shape to fill the space, but not the right color (ugly spray painted silver), so I spray painted the frame with a navy gloss. Perfect!
Gallery walls don’t have to be intimidating, and I don’t think there is a right or wrong way to do them. It’s just whatever style or aesthetic fits your personality and home! If you need some ideas I suggest heading to Pinterest of course. I have a board dedicated to gallery wall inspiration!
I have a few more plans for this room. Nothing too major, but just a couple of extra touches I would like to add. We shall see when that makes it to the top of the list!! (like my classy fan on the nightstand – reality friends lol)
Thanks for following along and reading here!!
