Picture Gallery Wall {Before/After}

  
BEFORE

The longest wall in our house

AFTER
We've lived here for 10 year this month and I can't even believe I finally got my gallery wall done? I've been scared to death of this wall for as long as I can remember. I mean don't get me wrong I've had several different, big pieces of art hanging there, but it just never did it for me. You know what I mean?

Please forgive the picture quality, I really do have a brand new "big girl" camera, but am still learning how to use it.  Also, please excuse the glare from my windows in the living room.  To get the right picture I had to get down closer to the floor and try to shoot it upwards.  I am just thrilled I finally got it done and the best thing is I can add on to it or change it up a little with each season.  Hope you are inspired!!  The complete details are here.

  1. Oh my gosh, I LOVE it!!! I am the same way...guess I have about 6 months to get over my fear if we are allowed to take 10 years to figure this out! I am scared of all the walls in my house, and rarely get brave enough to hang anything up. But, this looks fabulous, yes, very inspiring!!

  2. Thank you Taryn!! We can work on your walls now, just let me know and I can help you too. I was so afraid of holes in the walls, but they can be repaired so easily.

  3. Andrea,
    thanks for stopping by my blog! I think your wall looks great! I will post mine soon and send you the link so you can check it out. :)
    Also, I didn't recover the leather, we sold it on craigslist and purchased the ektorp series from IKEA. I am loving it!!!

  4. Thank you Ange! Great, please do post a picture when you are done with it. I love seeing everyone's work and creativity.

    When you sold your leather on Craigs list, did you get enough to buy the ektorp? I've never sold anything on there and didn't know if it would be worth it?? Any advice would be great. Have a great week....
