Experimenting With Art Walls

14 November 2011

Dear Diary,

I have a gallery wall in my living room. The other day I looked at it and got bored so I decided to play around with it. I’m actually not sure I like the changes I made but I’m going to share them with you anyway, Diary, because you’re always there for me and you never let me down. Anyhoo, here are some before pictures:

Sidenote: How rad is my Lands’ End tote? I just got it and I’m kind of obsessed.

To stir things up, I nixed the mid century architectural drawing and added an ugly painting I made last week. I actually like the painting and I think it ads a bit more of a modern look since it’s not in a frame and is a little more graphic on the wall. Here are some after photos.

Here are a few close ups of some of my favorite pieces. I found this one at a flea market.

I don’t really know what Mickey is up to here, but I love him so I love this piece.

Across the room, I replaced another one of my paintings with the architectural drawing from the gallery wall.

So, in conclusion I’m not 100% sure my apartment looks any better. It’s just different and exciting. And sometimes when you start to feel your house getting stale, you should shake things up a bit, right?
