With the BIG NEWS out of the bag (still eeeeeking and happy dancing over here!!) I can finally share the newest addition to our home – our master bedroom gallery wall!
Have I mentioned that gallery walls used to scare me a bit? Well, seriously! They are intimidating! They seem like such a project, such a commitment and such an investment. NADA! Once I finally had decided that YES, there’s going to be a GALLERY WALL (versus a picture ledge), it all came together much easier than expected.
Adrian requested that I would frame some of my watercolor pieces (isn’t he the sweetest man alive!?) and since my watercolor pictures are itty bitty little things, I was up for a challenge. My other angst was that this wall would turn out to be much more busy and cluttered than what I wanted it to end up. I wanted a wall with personality, yet still that bedroom serenity we all desperately need in our lives.
I picked out some of our favorite watercolor winter landscapes and matted and framed them in some old wooden frames I had laying around. To bring in a pop of modern, I stuck with black and white pieces for the skinny black frames. And since we have a serious outbreak of baby fever over here, a print of our little offspring was befitting. For the last frame I dug up my old Silhouette and created some modern word art! Oh, how much fun that was!!
But enough of my ramblings and onto the pics!
