Since the board and batten in the basement bar is complete, the Wall of Void above it has become my focus. It has definitely been an evolution, with changes made along the way. But, you can see where it started, and watch it step-by-step (you lucky devils) to the finished product.
But, since I know you’re as impatient as I am – here is a quick peek at the finished wall. Just peek. For a quick second. A glimpse.
Ok, now look back at me. Over here.
In creating this gallery wall, I started by gathering a bunch of different photos, pictures, etc.. and laid them out on the floor.
Now, if you’re totally exhausted, like I am, because of the time change, you might not notice that the floor layout isn’t what ended up on the wall. That was part of the evolution. And the fact I couldn’t find the photos I wanted to put in the chunky frames. (I had scrapbooking paper in the frames when we sold our old house in an effort to “neutralize” the space).
Do you ever put something away for safe keeping and discover that it’s SO safe that even YOU can’t find it? That’s me.
So, here is how the wall began, and how it evolved through the process, step by step.
Then I added a painting that we have, but had not yet hung in the house. I love this painting. Great colors and scene – it’s like an old street scene.
Yes, my daughter is missing a tooth. She lost it at my mom’s house when she wasn’t quite two. Fell down and hit it on the base of her couch and the thing came out root and all. Fortunately, she’s grown into the toothless look now and it’s not quite so out of place.
I’ll tell you what, this girl is giving me a run for my money! She’s the one with the missing tooth, first one to get stitches (getting off the toilet, fell and hit her head on the stepstool that was in the bathroom). And let’s not forget the recent hair cutting incident… None of that with my boys!
One final before and after view (sorry for the wall color differences – photos were taken at different times of the day):
So, there you go. Do you have a gallery wall in your home? I have always loved them – so many different options and possibilities!
Thanks for stopping by!
