I know my posts have been scarce this week. There was an outbreak of Bronchitis that seem to only effect my toddlers, Pink’s Sweet 16 birthday party planning left me with only 3 hours of sleep a night, I also found out why teenage girls give their mothers headaches talking about boys, and of course there was still my daily housework. Thankfully, things have settled down here at Casa Watkins. I was even able to finish my Coastal Family Room Gallery Wall.
This wall has been neglected for a while. Several different designs were attempted that did not work for the space or feel of the house. This resulting in a bare wall for a VERY long time. From all the chaos this week, a colorful gallery wall emerged. I am so happy with the results.
Gallery walls give you the opportunity to present all sorts of interests. I have a variety of decor incorporated in my gallery wall. Did you notice the all time reader favorite periodic elements family sign? This fun, geeky family sign has finally found a home in the family room.
You do not have to restrict yourself to photos or painted art pieces. I appreciate when other non art pieces are incorporated to make a cohesive gallery wall. This circular planter tray was perfect for the gallery wall. It brings in natural elements and offers an alternative shape to all the squared/rectangular pieces. The planter tray was a thrift store find for $2.50. A little much for a thrift store find, but it’s in great condition.
A framed trio of jars also brings in more variety to the gallery. The trio was also on sale at Micheals as a buy one get one free! Oh, the possibilities that await these jars. For now, they are sporting recycled flowers from the spring mantel.
There is another big yellow frame that has yet to find a place to hang. Thinking it would look great hanging at my home command center. Looks like I have a project this week.
Thanks for stopping by my casa!
I will be participating in my first Home Tour Hop tomorrow! Be sure to stop by again tomorrow to view more of my casa and other great homes.
