I’m pretty sure I have one too many projects going on around here. Oh well. It keeps me on my toes. I thought I might show you my new dinning room table today and ask for some advice on chairs, but I haven’t taken any pictures yet. There are still a few boxes of Gift Shoppe merchandise that need to find a home somewhere else. So, we will get to the table and the chairs question later this week or next.
You may remember that last week I mentioned I was collecting frames for a little gallery wall project in my hall. Well, I’m finally ready to get started.
I don’t have all the frames, artwork, or pictures I need, but I have to start laying out the frames so I can determine what other sizes I’m going to need. Some of the spaces are pretty tight, so this could get a little tricky.
I’m pulling most of my inspiration from the gallery wall that Young House Love created in their hall. I have been in love with it since the moment I saw it. Of course, my area is much, much smaller.
To keep it organized, I plan to hang everything within a “band” that wraps around the space.
I’m going to use painters tape to mark off my “band” as illustrated in the pictures above. The frames and art will stay in those lines and the edges of the outer pieces of art work will line up with the edges of the tape creating a more deliberate look. Hopefully. This is just the plan.
Anyway, that’s my hall and wall before. Let’s hope I can wrap up this project prior to Thanksgiving. I”d like to host my first family and friends holiday party here – a Thanksgiving Eve Mixer. Sounds like fun, right?
What do you think of gallery walls? Do you have or want one in your home?
