I love the black and white photographs with gold accents!
I decided that I wanted to make a gallery wall(s) in similar fashion in our all too bland stairwell. Here is the blank slate I wanted to work on in our stairwell leading from our main level to our bedrooms upstairs:
I measured out the wall space I had to work with and taped out the area on the floor in our front room. Next, I laid out picture frames I had on hand (including Target clearance frames, frames purchased at Goodwill, and frames or items I had around already) until I found arrangements that I liked.
I traced the frames onto newspaper and cut out the pieces so I could play with the arrangement on the wall a bit.
And now it looks more like this:
Can you even believe my 'nail in the wall' phobic husband let me do this? I had originally planned on using Command Hooks but instead decided to just go for it and use nails aka 'railway ties', according to Bill who insists I could have used smaller nails:)!
While I have a good chunk of work to do in this area (lots of the pictures in the frame are the wrong orientation or the frames are empty, etc), I like where it's headed. And I love making personal art for our home. This post shows the art work that I made for Bill for Christmas this year. Now and then, I'll post changes or updates to the walls, including any artwork I make for this little part of our home.
And with that, go put a hole in a wall to hang some fantastic art this weekend!! It'll be so worth it:)! And Happy St. Patrick's Day too!! See you next week.
