It may have taken me a year to fully complete, but the gallery wall in our family room is finally complete!
When I stared the project months and months ago, I had no idea it would be so hard!
Maybe I did it all backwards.
I chose all of the frames (from Ikea) first. Then I arranged them all on the wall. And last, I chose the pictures. The last part was the hardest. It’s was difficult to find a mix of pictures and art that complimented each other and looked good in the room!
After lots and lots of tweaking and changing everything around, I’ve finally got a grouping that works well together and that I’m happy with….
I wanted a mix of art prints, family photos, and other meaningful pieces.
The frame containing the text is the lyrics from our wedding song that I wrote out on craft paper with a Sharpie.
The shells in the shadowbox are some we’ve collected on various trips + more to fill it up from Michael’s (read about it HERE).
The Schwepes clock face was an antique store find.
The large wooden clock face was a DIY project (you can read about it HERE).
The lighthouse picture was one I snapped when we were on vacation in the Outer Banks.
Other than the family pics, all of the other art prints were purchased from Art.com.
1. Close-up of Nautilus Shell Spirals by Ellen Kamp
2. Harbor I by Amy Melious
3. Shades of Aqua III by Vision Studio
Overall, it was pretty inexpensive to complete considering it’s a whole wall full of art!
I’m looking forward to sharing many more completed project with you in the coming year!
