The Stonybrook House: Gallery Wall Update

Gallery Wall Update

February 2, 2016

This took WAY longer than I thought it would.... The painting part was quick!

Here is the before... Remember that poopy brown color.... Blech!

Ahhh.... This looks so much better, calmer... :) Since we were painting the entry area,
I figured we might as well paint the billiard room, too. You gotta see how we painted the 20 ft. walls!
I just love this gallery wall... It makes me smile every time I come in here. The years
have flown by, but this wall let's me remember each stage, memory and smile I shared with my two beautiful children and my wonderful husband. This also reminds me to thank The Lord for His goodness.

I never intended to keep those black accents... I just never had enough incentive to get
rid of them. Do you see those two little babies? Oh! My Gosh! Aren't they adorable???!!

So, first I repainted all of the picture frames. There are a few I'd like to replace, but
it's what I have for the time being. I painted them with a DIY Chalky Style Paint.

While my daughter was home for a weekend, we discussed this room. She agreed
that the color on the walls was great, but the rug and the pool table and the light fixture
were a bit more on the brownish side. Hmmm, hence the poopy brown color I had chosen
for the walls.

So, I needed to add some sort of brown to my wall, and I thought I'd try to
blend in a more rustic feel.

First, I had to change the collage. The flowers had to go. I just put antiqued
nail heads in the holes and glued them there. That looks so much better!
Then trying to figure out what would replace the black accents, I came up
with these.

I love the trend of arrows right now and wood letters.

And these chevron arrows...  My daughter and I made a set for her a couple of months ago.

This wood "family" sign was an addition to the wall, it just belonged there.
Hubby got involved and helped me.

The last accent was our "25th Anniversary" sign. I love the way it came out.

I'll be sharing about how we made all of wood accents. I didn't purchase one thing
for all of them! It all came from our scrap wood pile. :) It just took some time.
Whew! Now on to the next project!
