Gallery Wall

I refuse to apologize for not blogging for exactly two months today. Number one cause none of you care, it's not like I say things that are that riveting. And number two I haven't had time because I was busy doing fun stuff I'm not sorry about.

Whew! Now that that's off my chest.

Gallery Walls. Ahhhhh decorating. If you have known me for long you know that decorating my house stresses me out. I never know how to make a decision, I don't want to be matchy matchy, but I'm not bold enough to be daringly different. I'm a dork.

Luckily I live in the age of Pinterest and I surround myself with snazzy decorating friends who I can copy :)

So when we sold the piano, and got rid of, sold, moved the antique buffet ( anyone want a antique buffet?) that weighs a bazillion pounds, we ended up with a big blank wall in our dining room. I had a collection of pictures and mirrors I liked, I just had to get them in the right order.......

I also ended up cutting up newspaper in the shape of all my decor so I could tape it on the walls and move it around until it was exactly right, but somehow I have misplaced that picture of my insanity. I did use the trick of laying a blank piece of paper under my finished arrangement and drawing it so I knew where to tap all my nails in on the wall! That was a very helpful trick, thanks Pinterest!

 So here is the finished wall.

I still feel like it is missing something.....I want something that is not in a frame. Something that will add dimension and a different texture to the wall. But for now I love it. Gallery Wall = done!

What do you think? What would you add? Where?

I still check in regularly and was missing your posts!

I love the gallery wall; I think you did a great job. I don't really think it's missing anything...unless you add a whole bunch of stuff to keep it expanding along the wall!

It's beautiful! Looks even better in person!

I agree with Laura, it looks great as is unless you want to really expand! If you do, maybe some gallery wrapped smaller canvas prints? Or the Pinterest "put your picture on a piece of wood" thing?
