Gallery Wall

I have been collecting artwork over the past year because I knew I wanted to put a gallery wall behind my tv where there was only a lone clock…b.o.r.i.n.g…

Here is the before:

And the after

What’s on the wall & Why:

The map of Europe in 1500 – I’m a history nerd what?
Eiffel Tower canvas – from mother’s day in may
Paint splatter canvas – from Blue Man Group in NYC
Girl on beach – I just imagine this is me
Winston’s caricature – he’s my handsome man!
Champagne print – a glass of Champagne is always appropriate
Texas print – Texan born and bred
Howdy print – it’s actually a card! and again Texan
If the Crown fits tin – I might have a slight obsession with royalty
B&W picture – I took this in Normandy
Vespa print – I desperatly want a Vespa!
Quote card – an Irish blessing I picked up when I was in Ireland
HP book pages – the first page of HP1 and the last page of HP7 (to be framed) because Always.
Paw print canvas – Poppy & Winston’s paw prints (or Poppy’s smudge)
Heart canvas – duh
Girl on Bike print – “I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara I could save the world” so true
Cartoon – HP cartoon it says I’ve just finished Harry Potter and there’s nothing to read!
Picture of Mom, Poppy, Winston, and I – my fam
Noah’s Ark- framed in my room as a kid
Lines from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream‘ – my lines from when I was in the play

What do you think?

    I love this! I had a great gallery wall back when we lived in Hawaii, but since moving to Korea I have nothing! I am going insane just looking at my horrible wallpaper! This has inspired me to start working on my walls!

    I love it! I think that’s a great idea for the wall behind the tv. I just might have to do it. :)
