The Island of Misfit Decor has a few less misfits these days. I've been finding new homes for things all over the place - and I love it. This is not the norm for me as I usually like to keep things bare for a while after taking down all of the Christmas decor. Not this year. It's been so much fun fluffing and tweaking.
I've had the most fun in my Living Room where I decided to create a gallery wall after seeing an inspiration pic in my newest issue of Southern Living.
I don't even have a good before shot of this wall because I couldn't stand to show it with nothing on it. So I avoided taking a picture of the whole wall and instead just showed a portion of it with one of my favorite antiques.
My living room is my most favorite room in the house. It's where I blog and in the morning the sun comes pouring through. I love to sit here and have my coffee while the baby is sleeping. Hubby thinks it's a little stuffy in here, but to me it feels warm and cozy. Even more so now that I added some of my favorite artwork to the wall.
What's funny is that most of these pictures have been on the island for years collecting dust. I never got rid of them because I knew I'd find a home for them someday.
It took about 5 seconds to decide that I was not going to plan this out on the floor. So with a handful of nails in one hand and a hammer, level and ticky tack in the other, I randomly set about creating a gallery wall. Of course I had to move things around, which meant even more holes, but, like having 3 children, what's one more?
I'll be adding more over time, and eventually would like to cover the whole wall, but I love how it looks for now. It makes the room so much cozier without the huge bare wall.
Thanks for visiting and have a fabulicious day.
