I’ve always been a fan of the “gallery wall” concept. I have one in my craft room that I add prints and postcards and things to all the time. (someday maybe it will be organized enough for me to show it to you.) I love how it looks a little random but also put together at the same time. When I envisioned making a gallery wall in the nursery, I thought about the same idea. A variety of different frames, prints, and other hanging things. I was inspired by Cassie’s post on Back to Her Roots about how she did her nursery gallery wall in an inexpensive and unique way. (here) I had big ideas of a wall filled with things in all different sizes, shapes, and media mostly DIY and thrifted. Then, the months flew by, and I realized how little time I actually had to do things, and how small the room was.
My gallery wall ended up smaller than I was originally thinking, but I still really like it. There still is some room to make it bigger, so that might happen as I find more thing to add to it.
Details about the things on the wall:
- 5×7″ Mod Pug Dog Silhouette Print from ModDogShop on Etsy
- 9×10 Carousel of Progress Quote Print from Designs by Nicolina on Etsy
- Hanging metal star made by a local artist that I found at a local gift shop.
- Art print postcard from Toy Story that is part of a series of Pixar postcards that I bought.
The frames are all from Michaels. If I would’ve had more time and energy, I definitely would have thrifted and painted them, frames are expensive! I also kind of wish the wall had more color – colored frames, or brighter colored prints. It is across from the striped wall with the bunting though, so the room does have some color in it.
