You know what I hate? Mondays. Yup....there I said it. And seeing a dead roach on the kitchen floor when I wake up.
Nasty little suckers.
There doesn't seem to be anything I can do about Mondays or dead roaches if history tells me anything:)
Let's just get down to some design.
It's time to discuss what is going on my gallery wall. [first post]
Who the heck knows.
JK.....I kinda have an idea.
Of course it will be the 11th hour before I actually decide the final version.
Here is the only tip I can offer:
Newsflash.... like you haven't seen this before.
The last time I did a large gallery wall I started with brown craft paper. And if you think that stuff is easy to work with....think again. They were so darn curly I had to iron them.
Not exactly the extra step I needed......but if you are looking for perfection then plan on it.
Of course you can always go the random "throw them up" for that eclectic feel. I am a fan of both looks.
I had 8 of these vintage gray and white botanicals that I purchased at Scott's [years ago]. I went to Michaels to get a price on having the mats done when the nice guy behind the counter gave me a suggestion.
Get some paper and just lay the prints on top so the slightly browned edges will show.
Crickets.....uh hell yeah. Probably not good for Michaels bottom line but I was on board!
I mean a couple of dollars for paper or $20 for mats.
I selected these frames.
Which because I live right....they miraculously had the 8 I needed.
And there you have it.
Hopefully next week this area will be gushing with art.
I have to figure out a good plan to extend them beyond the shelves......
Because you guys are so unbelievable important I will think of nothing else until this gallery wall is epic.
You can see it next Monday!
