But what about this big blank wall?
I started with a bunch of random wood frames and such, and I want to create a dramatic gallery wall. At first I was going with an all natural theme, but I didn't love it, and it frankly didn't go with my new dramatic curtain color. So, I took my wood frames and painted them all with black spray paint.
I started randomly throwing things in frames in my excitement to get stuff on the wall, but I had to rein myself in and try to do it a better way. So, I took a good look at the things I wanted to frame and decided to turn them from ok to great! A simple mat from Michaels and a shuffling of frames turned this amazing photo taken by my friend Richie at Marheine Photography from blending in with the thick black frame to really standing out in a larger, thinner frame!

|So much better! A simple grey mat and scrapbook paper in a thinner frame!|
Other things got the good treatment as well...
PS - be sure to check out my sister's blog, Sunbeam Yellow, for the how-to on the above art. The tree contains the lyrics to me and Jon's wedding song, and the hearts contain our initials. Adorbs. I simply spray painted the white frame to match the rest
Photo Strip from our post-bar exam to Atlantic City. Including a yellow and grey background (scrapbook paper) makes it more exciting!

And we have the start of a great gallery wall collection! As you can see, there's ONE more thing to put up there that's in the works, but I really like it!
