Dining room gallery wall. Boom.
Art really isn’t my thing – I have a hard time with committing to it, with spending time searching for it, and with spending the money on it too. So I went all one-note on this wall and got everything from Minted (nothing sponsored, just easy). I liked how I could see what worked together before I ordered a single thing. And I am totally cool with not spending a fortune or trudging through thrift stores for a great find. I mixed a few different frames and laid out everything on the floor before committing.
I measured before putting holes in my freshly painted wall. But somehow I screwed it up and the first two pictures did not end up where I intended (glad I don’t have the same problem when I am measuring lumber cuts). Luckily, the wall turned out okay. Guess I could have skipped all that pre-planning – ha!
The buffet got topped off with a pair of lamps from West Elm and a few other items. Hopefully the end result isn’t too busy?
I’m really not a “more is more” person when it comes to decorating so, this much action is outside my comfort zone for sure. But because we have so few walls in our main floor for art (lots of openings/doorways/windows) I really wanted to max out the interest and color for this wall. It is so fun to have a wall to play with, now that the wall isn’t taken up by our old buffet/hutch!
And I like how the color balances out the super simple DIY buffet below.
Gah, I can’t believe the One Room Challenge is halfway done already! Should I be mildly terrified that I haven’t finalized my pick for dining chairs yet?
Hope you are checking out all the great rooms in the One Room Challenge here!
