I’m so excited to share our fall foyer update!! Every time I walk by it I get giddy, it’s so visually pleasing to me and I’m proud of how it came together. Yep, patting myself on the back…I’m doing that more now, try it!
Do you ever get stuck at the beginning of something you really want to do because your are not sure how or where to start? Or just tell yourself tomorrow is the day, just to get distracted and rationalize excuses for why you didn’t get it done? Why do we do this even though we know getting that project done would make us feel so much better? I have been listening to a lot of motivational/self-development speakers lately and they talk about this a lot. It’s very I found this article on the topic that I thought was really interesting and relevant to my feelings here.
I digress, our gallery wall is a project I’ve been putting off since we moved into our house. The task just seemed daunting and like a whole lot of work that would probably not even come out right. I actually think because our entire house is in a state of disarray from the renovation, I crush the little areas I can control! Decorating is so therapeutic for me, I’m such a visual person and playing around with little spaces is right up my alley.
Kelly walked in one morning and I handed her a level and said, we’re doing this today and then we’re going to share it. We laid it out in the floor and then started from the center.
I am so excited with how this turned out and it’s a great small home project anyone can do! I started by finding the items I knew I definitely wanted to use, obviously the table was already there, finally hanging the mirror, featuring these gorgeous porcelain jars, and family photo’s. Instead of overthinking and wondering where I could print the photo’s for this wall, I actually made it really simple and just printed them from my office printer in black and white. I just recently get this new printer and I think they came out really well and especially with the type of matte frames I used. Once I had the must have items laid out on the floor I was able to figure out the layout I wanted and where I needed more to fill out the the look. I pulled from artwork I have collected throughout the years and because I tend to like the same color palette and general style it all came together really nicely.
Do you have a project right now you are putting off?
If so, write it in the comments below as admitting it is the first step to getting started 🙂
