After a year and a half, it was great to finally put the first holes in our living rooms walls (actually we put way more than we intended), and in our round about way, ended up with this gallery wall:
For weeks we had every frame in our house laid out in various configurations on our living room floor. That still didn’t keep us from deciding on an arrangement, hanging it all up, taking one look at it, and not liking it. I forgot to snap a picture, but the first configuration had two different ledges with pictures propped on them and 5 frames hung on the wall – that’s a lot of holes. Taking all of it down and seeing all those holes was frustrating, but luckily this new configuration covers all but two of the holes. One of these days we might get around to patching up the two that still show, but I suspect we’ll forget they are even there.
but I wasn’t loving the way they looked in there. I am liking them in the living room, though. I really like the mix of colors with our throw pillows and area rug. It is a simpler arrangement than I was originally going for, but I found using more frames looked too busy.
Since these were free to print, they will likely change one of these days, but for now I think they will stay. And since I stole them out of our dining room frames, I will be searching for new prints in there and will of course be sharing when I find them.
Also, don’t forget to check out our inspiration galleries! They include LOTS of home decor images submitted by readers like you!
