Guest Bedroom Gallery Wall

Hey there…hope you had a great 4th of July weekend. We had a low-key but great weekend with some really lovely weather, finally. I’m sorry to see it end so we’ll just ease into Monday with a little gallery wall project that I’ve been slowly working on in the guest bedroom.

It’s been over a year since I revealed my blue guest bedroom and, when I last shared it with you, I still had a few things to finish. One of the items on the unfinished list was this blank wall that you see as you walk into the bedroom. When we first moved in I had a big, tall dresser on this wall but it was just too large for the space so once we painted, added a bed and fixed everything up, I had a blank wall that needed a little something.

The first thing I tried was a small console that was used in the hallway of my last house. I put it there for a few weeks, knowing that I could paint it, but it just took up too much space in this small room.

Next, I tried some artwork. I’m not sure what the picture in the frame is but I felt that it looked lost on the wall.

I just never got the warm fuzzies from anything that I tried (you know that feeling you get when you decorate an area and you know it’s just right?) so I started experimenting with different things to make a mini gallery wall.

I did shop for pieces to display but ultimately used things that I already had, including the silhouette of Finn, which was a fun and easy project I did last year.

When you’re decorating, do you know right away if something is going to work or do you leave it for a while before you decide?

Hope you have a great week!

    I am not much for gallery walls. Don’t know why. They are popular though and I have tried them before. But after living with them a few days I usually take them down. Right now I have nothing on my walls. Can’t decide what to put on them except my quilt room will have a design board and I bought a reproduction of a Couture magazine cover for the bedroom. Debbie

      It took me a while to warm up to a gallery wall Debbie. I would put them up and take them down. The one I put up in the living room is the first one I really liked enough to look at every day. I’m sure once you find things that you like and want to see on your walls, you’ll start to hang things up.

      Hope you have a great week!

    Very pretty, Kristi and I love the wall color. I know right away if I like something. I feel it in my gut. If I have to sit with it for a while, then I know it’s not right. Things rarely grow on me!

    I love that color of blue. That is an awesome shelving unit on the wall too. Gallery wall looks great too. Very nice guest bedroom.

      Thanks Brooke. It’s such a small room and I was afraid to paint it a dark color but I think it turned out ok. Thanks for stopping by.

    I’m with Kim. I usually just feel it and know it’ll work and it’s rare that I change something. Love the gallery you did and the wall color 🙂

    I’m glad you had a great Fourth!

    xo,

      Thanks so much Rue. I’m just glad to have something up on the wall before it’s time to paint again. 😉

      I’m so glad you stopped by. Have a great week!

    It takes me awhile to figure out a combo I love and then I second guess it…but I love what you came up with!
