Gallery Wall Update

      A long time ago {well it was probably only 6 months ago}, I showed you the start of my gallery wall. It was a dinky little gallery wall, but it had room for growth. That's what is so great about a gallery wall, it can grow! And you can include things other than just picture frames. I finally got it completed.

     Its a hard wall to photograph because its just a short little stairway wall. We live in a tri-level so there are only 7 steps up.

     To incorporate a piece of 'original' wall art, I gave my son paints in the colors that I knew would go with my decor and let him go at it.

     To help the color flow of my grouping, I cut out mine and my husbands initials and glued them onto scrapbook paper that matched.

     Years ago I found these pruning sheers at an antique store and I love the details on them. I tied them shut with raffia and hung them by the raffia onto a nail.

     I had a little bundle of sticks that got put on top of this frame. It wasn't my intention initially that they stay but I love the texture they provide.

     Adding more scrapbook paper again helps with the color flow.

     Have you tried a gallery wall yet? They are super easy, and there are so many inspirational ideas out there!
