project pinterest: gallery wall 2.0

So when my pal AP announced she was holding a new Pinterest link up, I knew this was going to be one link up I wanted to participate in. I am only just now getting the whole "Pinterest" thing and am just starting to use it, but in a short time, I've been a pinning fool.

So it's time to take some of those pins and put them into real life.

We've done a few Pinterest projects over the past few months and most of them have been a success but today I'm going to show you a Pinterest spin on my beloved gallery walls.

Truth be told, I've been a fan of the "gallery wall" for years. Growing up, my dream was to always have a house with an amazing staircase that I could do pictures up the entire wall going up the staircase.

I've done a gallery wall in every house we've ever lived in. They have always been made up of just family pictures of all of us, in mismatched frames and I have always loved them. I'll do another big gallery wall in this house just like that because I love that look, but I wanted to do something different in two of the other rooms.

So I hit up Pinterest and loved the look of the gallery wall made up of art and mementos and pictures and decided that I wanted to do something similar.

Now my gallery walls are just beginning but they are both in smaller rooms with a much smaller area to cover than that wall. I would love to do something similar one day, but for now, these will do.

In our guest room (and I cannot get that one picture to hang straight for the life of me so we'll just pretend k?) up above the bed you will find this:

*Also ignore the cell phone pictures. The battery charger has temporarily disappeared in the big move.*

...and in Baby Girl's room..

It's a start, but I love them. And they add a lot to the rooms.

Now go link up with AP and show us what you've been "pinning"!

Love them both but the one in BGs room is my fav!

I just worked on a gallery wall in my house (my first) and feel like it will always be a work in progress - I think I'll be tweaking it until we move!

Love! I wanted so badly to do a gallery wall in our family room to which M replied "don't we enough pictures of our family in the house?" Touché. Sigh. Thanks for linking up, Mama! I'll pin this as soon as the boys go to bed!

Awe I love the print in E's room! You are good at this gallery wall thing! I have a semi gallery wall in our spare room but I want to do a big one somewhere but we are out of wall space!

Lindsey said...

I feel like such a slacker. we've been in our new place for a month and I've put ONE thing on the walls so far. Good job!

Tip - try putting some sticky tack on the corners of the frame. Should help a a bit! (crooked frames drive me batty! I'm always looking for new ways to make them stay put.)

Girl, you are on top of things! I have frames that we finally ordered prints for after having them for 2 years. Of course they are still sitting on the floor...

Sara said...

Love the gallery wall! It looks great! My favorite thing about a gallery wall is you can add to it any time and nothing has to be perfectly symmetrical or anything. Love the colors in yours.
