Salutations! Welcome to a project that took me way too long to complete. Here’s our big fat white wall right smack dab when you enter through our front door, the one that’s been keeping me up at night for, oh I’d say the past four years. It’s a ton of wall space and I couldn’t seem to figure out what in the world to do with it. When we first brought in the piano I hung a large mirror over it temporarily until I could figure things out. More thinking and planning went on over this here wall than I’d like to admit. I tried a gallery of vintage mirrors which looked quite pretty, especially in photos. But, they felt odd in real life. I just don’t want to see that much of myself every time I bust in the door. A friend of ours was reading up on feng shui at the time of my mirror shenanigans and apparently mirrors facing the front entry send all the good vibes flying right out the door. And I need all the good vibes I can get, that’s for sure!
So sometime before this past Christmas I began working on this gallery wall with old and new frames and family photos. It was daunting. It took forever. And well, here she is. It really seems to warm up our entry and makes this silly little cottage seem more like ours. And I thought I could add to it in the future as the mood strikes. But for now, I’m just relieved to check “create gallery wall” off my list. Check!
