Within the first day of moving into our new home , I knew we need at least one room that felt like it was “ours.”
We chose our bedroom . It’s the smallest room in the house= less money spent. Being the only room with a cable hook-up , I knew we would be spending a lot of our spare time in that room .
With paint and new carpet we had a fresh new space to rest our heads.
For my readers that have been around a while : May remember this piece
I originally refurbished this piece for sale. Not too long after trying to sell it , I slapped a “SOLD” tag on it and brought it home for myself. I fell in love with this piece after painting it. The cool tones and the contrasting wood grain makes it feel so calming.
As large as this dresser is , placing it along the long wall in my bedroom really dwarfed it size. That’s where the gallery wall came to life. I have been collecting different frames, photos, and trinkets for this wall for a while. Funny, I ended up not even using half of it and decided with things around my home.
I’m thinking I may still add more and make the gallery much larger . But, for now , it works just great and makes our room feel more like home.
I will definitely be doing more gallery walls through-out my home. I love all of the different memories you can capture . The overall feeling is so comforting , to me.
Wondering why I used maps ?
I used them on this side of my room to tie into the other side of my room…
My father is an electrician . While he was demoing out an old school ,years ago , he brought this huge pull down map home for me . He knew I would love it! Not only does it look really great in this space, give a focal point, add lots of color, it also serves an educational purpose . My oldest son loves to refer to it when studying geography .
Then , Layla from the Lettered Cottage posted THIS !! I must have amazing taste .
(we even have the same bed! The crazy thing is: It’s not on purpose , pure coincidence. )
