New Gallery Wall in the Dining Room

Hi everyone! Did you all have a good weekend? I drove up into our mountains with Haley and enjoyed the beauty up there. It was so nice and green and the water in the river was flowing. I love the sound of the water running over the rocks. It’s so relaxing.

I have been trying to complete lots of little things around the house, but nothing is quite finished or it’s not enough to be blog-worthy. We have just about completed the entryway-I am painting the floor this week. Probably won’t get the stenciling done right away, but at least it will look better. We have had quite the adventure with the light fixture. I was going to order the one on Amazon, and then thought I would just see if there was anything similar at the local stores. I found the hanging lights where you can add whatever shade you want and thought that would work instead. There are so many pretty shades! But then we couldn’t find what we needed to hang it without it being too long. I also realized I already had a drum shade from the old house. We finally took everything back and found the ceiling fixture we needed and now it is finally up. That’s what happens when you try to be creative and not have something everyone else does! 🙂

I did manage to finally hang up some pictures on my dining room wall. I took everything out that I had and laid it all out on the floor. It stayed like this for an embarrassing long time. Here are just some of the pieces. I played with the different pieces until I found the way that looked best to my eye.

Here’s what I came up with. You can see I used different shapes and different types of textures. Using different textures allows you to have a more neutral wall, but not look boring.I also try to use odd numbers, whether on the wall or in a vignette.

On this side I used a metal diamond shape piece, a round rattan mirror and a square canvas.

Here I have a metal star, and wooden frame with a printable in the middle and a metal round piece that was actually a charger plate I found on clearance at Target.

Here is my favorite piece! I know it’s a little early for summer weather, but I am ready!

Here it is with the table. I love adding pattern with tablecloths and then adding items to the centerpiece. Using a tray helps things together and creates a vignette.

I added everything to a tray which helps create a focal point. It’s also easy to move out of the way if needed. I added a little bit of beach and a little bit of spring.

Well, one more thing to check off the list. This week is the entryway floor and the baseboards in the hall bathroom. I still don’t have anything over the couch in the family room, but oh well. I’m still on the search for the ‘perfect’ thing.

Hope you all have a great week! Talk to you next time!

    Pamela good luck on your new home. It is slowly coming together. I really like how you add so many things to the wall, things like that round charger that you would not expect to see. Love your wall.
