I've had our large family portrait hanging above the sofa since just after moving into this house. It looked rather ordinary and lonely there, but I wasn't sure how else I wanted to adorn the wall. I wanted to create a gallery wall, but wasn't sure what all I wanted to put on there. I finally decided enough was enough of the empty walls earlier this week!
Here's the end result of a few hours of measuring and planning and sorting.
It's not heart throbbing love, but I do like it. Maybe if I gather more things or change out some photos later I'll feel the heart jolts for it. For now, I really do like it. It's amazing what just adding things to the wall has done for the room. It feels so much more complete now.
It was so nice and clean and uncluttered earlier in the day. Then the bus dropped the kids off. Reality walked in the front door and settled into the living room.
