Gallery Wall


If you’re anything like me, I bet you take lots of pictures and you don’t print them out?


When I came upon this picture on Pinterest, I knew this would solve the world’s all my problems.  I got my measurements from this site, which is the lady who took the original picture (very good instructions here if you want to do one yourself).  Then, off I went to the builder’s store to pick up all my supplies.  We measured, cut, and assembled.  I used wood filler so the screws wouldn’t show.  Then I painted the shelves black. 


Once dry, my sweet husband helped me measure and screw them into the wall.

I grabbed a hodge-podge of miscellaneous frames around the house.  I recently found the hands at Hobby Lobby and decided to spray paint the whole lot. 


Since the shelves are black, we opted to spray paint everything white.


We installed 2 sets of the gallery shelves. The first set is 22” wide …


and the second set is 35” wide.  What is perfect about these shelves is I can change things up without putting all kinds of holes in the wall.


I love these hands!!  I want to go in and paint their nails next!  Haha


And another favorite, my glass head from Pier One.  About half my friends say this is too creepy for them!! Not me…it inspires me to dress up for Halloween!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
