I noticed that Kelly at Kelly's Korner was doing one of her Friday Link-Ups on a topic that I have actually been meaning to post about.... displaying pictures. I have never done a link-up before, but I thought "why not?" I will only be up until 3:00 am working on my to do list. Anyhow, you may remember (or not), but awhile ago I decided to do several wall galleries since I have about ten trillion pictures of Beckett that I want to display.
Let me preface all of this by saying that my procrastination does have some limits - these pictures are straight from my iPhone and I didn't even bother trying to make anything look "nice." I just don't have time to be a perfectionist.
Ok, here's the grand tour...
Here is our entryway. This was actually quite a project, but pretty cheap. My mom gave me a bunch of gold pictures frames. I worked for awhile on picking different arrangements and colors and then painted, sanded, and repainted them all to get that "worn" look. The most expensive part was getting custom frames and glass, but I think they turned out well!
The one with the big M on it has a chalkboard inside. I plan to add a picture to it, but I think I will wait until B gets a little older.
To the left of our entry way is our dining room. These watercolors were done by my great uncle. They are different seasonal landscapes and I love them! The picture frames are from Aaron brothers and I had custom mats done at Hobby Lobby.
This is our living room. I found these oversize frames at Z Gallerie.
The shelf collection is all from Pottery Barn about 9 years ago. I am not crazy about it anymore, but that's one project I am not messing with for awhile!
Moving on to the hallway.... I ordered these canvas prints from Costco. They are a great deal and a very good quality!
And, finally, our bedroom. This was another major project for me. I wanted a sorta eclectic look, but it ended up being a pretty standard wall gallery. I am pretty proud of myself because I did all of the arranging, measuring, drilling, and hanging by myself. Which means I better sleep with a pillow over my head just in case my DIY skills aren't really so great! ha!
All of the frames in our bedroom are also from Aaron Brothers. I am a big fan of their penny sale!
Below are some really cool watercolors that my grandmother got in Paris in the 1950's. I love art that has sentimental meaning!
Well, that's the big tour. Thanks for stopping by!
