I like gallery walls. I really enjoy putting a big pile of things that I love on the floor and then playing until something beautiful happens. Hubby the Great wasn't a fan of the idea of a gallery wall when I first ran it by him, but I think I finally made a believer out of him. One thing I've learned about a gallery wall is this.... it doesn't have to be matchy matchy, it doesn't have to be themed, and it doesn't have to be perfect. It just has to be made out of things you love.
I submit for your viewing... Exhibit A...
They don't all go together and I certainly didn't get them all at the same time. But that wall makes me happy because it represents so many things that I love about my life and home. Those pictures were all in a box and could have stayed that way, but I decided to take a risk and put them together. I think it made magic and it's probably my favorite wall in my house.
Do you have a pile of discarded pictures or perhaps a secret love of 70's cross-stitch? Take a chance, or at least take a stroll through the pictures at goodwill. You might be glad you did!
