I've always wanted to have a gallery wall and could not wait to put one up! Before finding this house, the plan was to use the staircase but that idea when out the window with our L shaped stairs. Instead we decided to use the space between the coat closet and the kitchen opening.
We played around with the placement thanks to the ever popular trace method and ended up adding some more once the original set of frames were up.
I love that the gallery wall can be seen from the entryway.
We also hung some DIY projects like the chalkboard menu for the kitchen and a shadow box of the paper goods we made for our wedding that now resides in my office.
Speaking of my office, I have to give a huge thanks to my husband for mounting the tv in my office and putting together my desk (which we picked up at Ikea when we purchased our couch).
We're still waiting for Chris' diploma to come in so it can hang on the same wall as mine. I guess my college was out of the norm, because we actually received ours at our graduation ceremony. Other people I have talked to (including my brother and Chris) received theirs in the mail 6-8 weeks after the ceremony.
With so much bare wall space still left in this house, I can't wait to unpack some of our other frames and get them hung.
Do you feel like hanging pictures or art makes a place feel more lived in?
