Matt plays fantasy sports (and is really good!!) so he’s in here alot on the computer and always nagged for wanted a little TV in here so on Black Friday last year, I got him this little guy.  We tried to mount it in the middle of the wall but the bracket kept pulling out of the drywall so it has lived on the desk because I couldn’t ever figure out what to do to blend in an off-center TV.    And then a couple months ago, I painted the room Sherwin-Williams’ “Outerspace” and love it, but the wall was still bare.  Something had to be done. Derrr Emily!!  Gallery wall!!  They’re only like everywhere in blogland and all of them look so awesome so I have no clue why it took me so long to think of it. I had been seeing some pieces I really liked and ordered, not knowing yet where they’d go:   1) I saw Beth’s Colorado print from The Wooden Pencil Co. on Etsy and when I saw they had a Texas one, I had to have it of course.  It is in a frame with burlap mat from PB (thank you rewards points!).  Long side note, why do all the other states get gorgeous, melodious, nice birds like the scissor-tailed flycatcher and lark bunting while Texas has the loud-ass, mean mockingbird?!?  It’s not fair.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m a Texas girl born-and-raised and will probably never live anywhere else but seriously guys, a mockingbird?!  We have two super pretty little endangered dudes that live here and only here in tiny ranges, the golden-cheeked warbler and black-capped vireo, shouldn’t one of them be our bird??  I may start a petition. 2)  Then I saw Mandi’s post featuring fellow Texas girl Lindsey’s weaving from Hello Hydrangea and also had to have one of those.  I just knew her colors would look so good against the new wall color.  It takes everything I have in me not to buy her whole shop out so go make a visit ‘fo ‘sho, but you’ve been warned.   3)  I’ve always perused Minted’s art section because I love supporting individual artists but always ended up wanting everything but getting nothing.  Until I saw this print from Minted which reminded me of the tranquility of living by the coast.  As much as I’m not a fan of our city, you’d have to be crazy not to love getting to see coastal wildlife all the time and the egrets are my favorite.  So I knew I had to have this guy.  I was very torn between this one, because I think urchins are super cool critters, and this one which reminds me of camping as a kid, so I’m pretty sure one of them will be ordered eventually. I thought this would give me a good start and allow us to hang the stupid TV finally without it being an eyesore by itself.  After Matt hung the TV where he wanted it into a stud, I turned off ESPN to take pictures, then used the masking-paper-cut-to-size technique to lay my things out, even though there were only three of them. And voila!  I know it’s still small but it already makes the room look so much more finished.  And I have room to add whatever finds I want to it in the future.  I’m thinking a couple little things on the right of the weaving, something to better hide the dumb TV cord, and something horizontal above the TV.   It’s nice to have room on the desk again, although that is an area I’d like to work on in the future too.  I like the size of the desk but want something with more concealed storage and I need to figure out how to tame the eight thousand ugly cords behind and below it (which I refuse to show). I’m so excited to start adding to this little wall!  I’d like to find some thrifted art along with some smaller pieces from artists at festivals and maybe some DIY projects of course P.S.  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I painted the guest room and luuurrrrve it!  So I’ll be back on Friday with pictures and a reveal of some new things I got us that I’ve been wanting forever Linking up with: Worthwhile Wednesday, Work It Wednesday, Wow Us Wednesday, Party in Your PJs, Enchanting Inspiration, Thursday S.T.Y.L.E., Inspiration Gallery, Inspire Me Please, Pretty Pintastic Party, Frugal Friday, Pin Me Linky Party, That’s Fresh Friday, Creative Collection, That DIY Party, Silver Pennies Sunday, Link It or Lump It, Nifty Thrifty Sunday, Your Designs This Time, Monday Funday, Motivational Monday, Tutorials & Tips, Time to Sparkle, Show and Share, The DIYers, The Makers, From Dream to Reality, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Party in Your PJs, Link Party Palooza, Strut Your Stuff Saturday, SITS Sharefest […]
