A few weeks ago I shared my living room reveal, and today I want to share with you one of my favorite parts of the room. Now, I can’t take credit for this because I was totally inspired by the Corner Gallery Wall over at Liz Marie Blog! Liz is seriously talented and I could scroll through her blog for days (I’m sure you’ve seen it!)!! When I first saw her gallery wall, I realized I had a similarly huge corner in our house that needed to be filled, and since I have a serious obsession with gallery walls it just made sense!
This Corner Gallery Wall was so much fun to put together. Of course I can say that after it’s done since while I was hanging it I was absolutely positive I would hate it! Am I the only person that goes through the process of: I have the best idea….. I don’t think this is going to turn out right….. to “I love it!!!!!”. I must have asked my husband a million times if this truly looked as good as I was hoping for!
You really do have to see a gallery wall completed before you can decide if you love it or not, especially a corner gallery wall. Unfortunately this also kinda means you just have to hang it and hope for the best since you can’t see it in it’s full form until it’s on the wall!
Now, something I did before hanging this was trace out ALL my frames on paper and cut them out, then tape them onto the wall. This helps visualize the spacing tremendously, and when you have frames like I did that require two nails, it also helps with hanging! Ideally I would have used the command strips because I’m not a huge fan of putting holes in my walls, but none of my frames allowed for the use of those. Total Bummer!
Let’s talk about how I chose the frames and items for this corner gallery wall!
Did you notice the pictures of the 3 baby boys?… nope, those aren’t the same baby. The bottom one is my husband, the top left is Aubrey, and the top right is Adam. Aren’t they adorable?? When my mother in law gave me the picture of my husband in those Osh Kosh overalls, I knew if I had a boy I would need to recreate that picture! Then I had two boys, so naturally they both got their picture taken in the same kind of overalls! Definitely my favorite part of the wall!
Most everything on this wall has a special meaning to me! The arrows that point to my awesome husband represent that my whole adorable family started with him! I love and respect my husband so much, and I am beyond thankful for him giving me this beautiful family. But more importantly what he puts into us on a daily basis! Gosh I love him and our kids! : )
Then we have this fabulous clock that points to 9 o’clock. The time specifically doesn’t mean anything, but our anniversary is on the 9th day of the 9th month so it just worked for me! The clock is technically a faux clock, but you could totally make this a real one if you want! Tutorial coming soon for that!
Then there are several other little projects I made like the printable and the wood burned signs at the bottom right. I’ll be share each of those with you over the next few weeks!
One day I would like to add a chair in that corner, but for now that is where all of Adam’s toys go. It’s true… it rarely looks like this, so enjoy the pictures ; )
