Just A Small Change...

Do you ever have bright ideas while you are in the shower? That might be a crazy question, but it happened to me last week. I had an idea to create a gallery wall going up my staircase. I realize the idea of a gallery wall is far from groundbreaking. But I had all of these unused frames from Target and HomeGoods stashed in a closet- just sitting there. I originally planned to do a gallery wall in my loft. Click here for my ancient loft idea. I have changed my mind about the gallery wall in the loft and now have other plans that I will fill you in on after busy season.

So here is what my staircase looked like before my epiphany in the shower. I apologize for the terrible dark photos. I need a new camera!! It's on my list!


After my epiphany, I ran right to the closet, grabbed the photos, and just started pushing pins in the wall and hanging the frames. No sketching and no planning- no time for that.

But I think it worked out. Here is what it looks like now...


I promise I will take some better photos later.

I need to work on the spacing, but I like the overall concept!

If you look closely, you might see that I have no photos in the frames--yet. I plan to scour the Etsy after busy season to see what I can find. Any Etsy recommendations?

  1. I like it! I've been thinking of doing the same on my staircase but I plan to use photos of me/us with friends and family.

    BTW, I get my best ideas while in the bathroom...usually when brushing my teeth :)

  2. Very nicely done! Those are most times the best ideas, the spontaneous ones that you can quickly act on. I am pretty sure you will find plenty at Etsy. Happy home decorating!

  7. Your gallery wall looks great, I can't believe you did it freehand. I always have about 20 holes in the wall behind my pictures :). I can't wait to see the artwork you put in them. Nice work!

  9. Your gallery wall looks fantastic! I can't believe you spaced it out freehand with pushpins. That's incredible - you have a fantastic eye! Thanks for sharing. I'm your newest follower.
