Gallery Wall Inspo

I’ve been in my new apartment since September and really haven’t done much in terms of decorating. But over the past few months I’ve really been itching to prettyify this place. I’m actually really lucky because I have a ton of closet space in this lil ol’ one bedroom. But this also means that there isn’t a ton of wall space, especially with a big bay window and a fire place. But ther IS one big empty space right above my TV. And I’m pretty sure it’s calling for me to create a gallery wall around it. And I’m pretty sure it’s right. 

So I’ve decided that this will be my new project. I’m doing it. I’ve already got a couple pieces that I know I want to use like a big canvas of the Chicago skyline that I took while Max and I were sailing on the lake two summers ago. I also have a couple smaller ones that I created myself with cute quotes. I ordered these adorable guys from Etsy a few weeks ago that I think will fit just perfectly. Because you who doesn’t love zoo animals eating noodles? No one, that’s who. I think I’m going to spend a weekend thrifting (which I’ve actually never done – two birds, huh?) looking for unique frames, then once I have those I can figure out what exactly will go in them. Is it so wrong to used the framed and signed photo of Oprah that my ex-roomie left behind two years ago? The answer to that, is yes, yes it is. Which means, Katie, you can have your picture back, I’m sure Ms. Winfrey is just dying to get up on a wall in the nursery and watch over the sweet baby that will be here soon. #creepy

I’ve found some great inspiration that I thought would be worth sharing. I really love the ones that aren’t just photographs. I think it just makes for more of a conversation piece.  If you have any tips or suggestions on creating a gallery wall, please let me know in the comments.
