Hole{s} In The Wall

Lately I am obsessed with gallery walls.

I’ve mentioned our WHITE walls here a million times, but I’m actually not minding them as much when I hang clusters of pictures, artwork and whatnot on them and create a little gallery.

I’m in the process of doing one in Elliott’s room with some vintage plates, a mirror, a frame and whatever else comes to mind.

Here are a few that jumped out at me on Pinterest.

I hesitate putting so many holes in the walls since I’m not sure how much longer we’ll be living here, but while we ARE here, I want the kids to feel that their rooms are {finished} and that we’re not in some sort of temporary holding tank…which is how I’ve felt for the past 3 and a half years.

And here are a few recent groupings that I’ve hung making the white more bright and tolerable…

I have enjoyed scouring stores, thrift shops and garage sales for old frames, making a few crafts here and there and employing a can or two of spray paint to create these little spaces. It’s amazing too what things you can find around the house to add to these galleries. Again, the most boring, Goodwill bound item can be transformed quickly and easily with a can of Rustoleum and hung with a hammer and a nail.

And {another} hole in the wall.

  1. There’s a “hole” lot of more decorating to be done! Keep at it and keep those creative juices going! You’re doing great!

  2. You are reading my mind! Thanks for the shot of inspiration. I also feel like our white walls are not homey, but you’ve made it look personal and cozy. Thanks!

  3. Hey, Leesh! I like to use the Command picture hangers {velcro}, too. They are great and leave less holes, but at the end of the day we need to make our houses feel like homes! So decorate away! 😉 XO
