This is how it looked last time we talked about my little gallery wall
I had some frames. I bought from Walmart. They were like a light goldish color
I added some of my sophisticated finishing in pewter to some of the frames. I wanted some of them to appear darker, I really like gallery walls where there is a mix of metals.
And this is the finished product
Since I was born in Scotland and I live in the USA now, I really wanted a lot of maps in our bedroom. I think its amazing that we came all this way and I found my husband. We joke about being soul mates, but I wonder how I found him and the magic behind it all.
All the pictures are black and white, and I love the bolder black images, I think it adds a nice touch. The little brown and cream picture with the tree is actually our thank you card from our wedding, and it says our last name in the corner, which just made me giddy to have my name be his last name.
The white frames are a mix of Ikea and Walmart. In this picture you can really tell the difference in the gold frames
I'm not super sentimental, but the top white frame on the left holds our first date mini golf ticket. I scored a hole in one on our first shot, he thought I played golf or something. In any case he remembers being impressed. He also remembers what I was wearing..so that says something.
And this is the view from our bed.
Maybe in time I'll add more to it, but right now I'm really happy with it. All the art came from a vintage book about boats, so that cost $0, and the frames I've been collecting little by little. But they were also really cheap. And the paint I had on hand, its the same paint that I used on myheadboard
Hope you like it! Does it make you want to start on your next gallery wall?
