History Gallery Wall

20151215_005352329_iOSMy wife, Molly, and I have been living in our home for one-and-a-half years now, and we have been making some improvements along the way. We have put in central air, a fence, new steps, and even remodeled a whole room! We have a small wall between our living room and kitchen that was bare and very plain. Molly found an awesome idea on Pinterest, and we devised a plan that would make this area a focal point for us and visitors.

Maybe some of you are familiar with gallery walls? I know I wasn’t until Molly showed me. It’s an artsy way of showcasing art, family heirlooms, or pictures. We decided to make one and create it so that it was a mixture of the things we both like. Molly knew I liked the history portion of the house, and she likes arts and crafts and current photos. We mixed our ideas together and came up with a past & present house gallery wall. It turned out quite nice. Molly picked out a great color for this room. I have to say I love the hanging pendant light she picked out as well. I dug up an old map of the city, a few old pictures, and a key from the door in our home.

This was such a fun and easy project. I would like to do another wall in the house, but make it a family tree with old family photos (ones that Molly doesn’t call creepy).  I think this is a great addition to a wall that was bare and just plain white. The wall is  now colorful and tells a story. I can’t wait to show visitors!
