Updating a Gallery Wall


You all know by now how much I love a good gallery wall, and I’ve probably taken this trend a bit too far in my own home, now that I stop to think about it.  But gallery walls are just way more interesting than single, random pictures, don’t you think?  But, when it comes to updating a gallery wall, I will admit that I fell short in one area of my home.  You may remember from my Christmas Tour last year that I had an adorable 12 Days of Christmas gallery wall.

But here’s the thing.  This arrangement has been hanging in my dining room ever since ((hanging head in shame)).  The only upside is that it’s not like we hang out in our dining room and you’d have to really look closely to notice that it’s Christmas-themed.  At least that’s what I’ve been telling myself…

Enter Cyndy, from The Creativity Exchange.  She has shared a gallery wall that she created in her daughter’s room, using calendar pages from The Rifle Paper Co.

Gorgeous, yes?

Well, she recently posted about the 2017 Rifle Paper Co. calendar, and it was just the nudge I needed to give my gallery wall a makeover.

Although I’m also digging the 2017 Bon Voyage Calendar.

Bon Vogage Calendar

Maybe I’ll use that one for my next makeover…

But, here is the new gallery wall –

    Wow Jenny! It turned out so amazing! Can you believe the quality of the paper in the calendar? They are seriously print quality and they look perfect on your wall! High five girl and thanks for the shout out! xoxo

    I love gallery walls! I have one going up our stairs at home. It reminds me of where I’ve come from and of people that I love that are no longer here. It also allows our daughter to see them and ask questions and I can tell her stories about her grandfather or my grandfather or her grandmother. I think a gallery wall is always a do!

      I couldn’t agree more – a great tribute to family over the years!

    Wow your walls are gorgeous! However, I’ve been watching bloodline and its just toooo much language and last night they introduced nudity? I’m sure it’s a good show but?

      I try to look past some of that to the story – I don’t know if I’ve gotten to the nudity yet! Still working my way through!

      You’re good! I thought about that after I posted it – might have to go back and add it in! 🙂

      These frames were from IKEA – They’re around 12×17. Great size.

    […] see what’s in store.  When you’re finished with it, turn it into artwork!  I did that here, and my friend Cyndy at The Creativity Exchange did it […]
