It's been a year in the making, but my "love" gallery wall is finally finished! I was inspired by this "You are my sunshine" gallery wall from J&A and Company and knew I had to recreate it for the wall outside the master bedroom.
My first purchase was a Kohl's special, which provided the theme inspiration.
I had to DIY a couple things. This one was in the docket already, Scrabble tile wall hanging.
I needed something circular so I was excited when I found this plaque in my craft closet. I painted it using the Shanty2Chic distress paint with Vasoline method.
I worked on four plaques that day, and there is a definitely a right balance of Vasoline - not too much and not too little. I mod podged the music paper (my hubby loves music) and painted the "s" and attached with some super glue.
I found all the frames at Hobby Lobby, and 50 percent off, of course.
I could have put "love" here, but that would have been too much. I like the message of "living love" better.
I got these for the stairwell, but that didn't work out, so I decided they were prefect for this gallery. They originally had a brassy look so Hubby was nice enough to spray paint them. Of course I had to include a photo from the Valentine's shoot on the love wall!
Can't get much more brotherly love than in this photo!
My husband gave this to me on our fifth anniversary (wood), a perfect addition.
So nice to have this wall finally complete! After taking this photo, I realized I needed to move the second row over to the left a tad. Oops! But that will be an easy fix because I used Command strips to hang it all.
