{our home} gallery walled

I’ve been talking about doing a home tour here on the blog, and today I was inspired by Sarah over at Thrifty Decor Chick to share our bathroom.

Our little, tiny powder bath.

We painted and put a new vanity and light in there over a year ago.

It was improved, but boring.

If you’ve been to our home, chances are you’ve been stuck in the powder bath lately (up until last week, the pocket door would stick…bad).

The good news is there is lots for you to look at if you do get stuck in there.

After the holidays, I finally got around to hanging artwork and photographs up on our walls (it only took 4 years).

This spring, I started to find some fun items while thrifting.

Along with some original artwork from family, some photographs, the kids hand and foot prints, my old teddy bear, a chalkboard from The Farm Chicks Show, and a few frames filled with cork the walls of this small room filled up quickly.

There are still a few frames to fill , but I love this room.

After we installed the new vanity, I was bothered by the fact that the wall around the vanity needed to be repaired, the flooring needed to be replaced, and we were missing some trim. You can see it all in the photo below…

In hindsight, I would have left the old vanity and just painted it.

The artwork, paint, new faucet, and lighting add what I was really looking for in this room.

home is…something to look at.

After all the Christmas decor came down the house felt clean, but empty.

So, I started hanging artwork.

I added to the gallery wall at our front entry…

I put up some new artwork in our family room which is mainly a beige neutral room and needed some color…

And, I gallery walled the entire power room (inspired by a good friend who put a gallery wall from floor to ceiling on one wall in her powder bath…I hope you don’t mind, Melissa)

These photos were just taken with my iPhone on instagram to show my husband while he is traveling for work this week.

As you can see, there are still stickers on some of the frames, and spaces to fill with photos or artwork, but sometimes just getting something done is better than nothing!

I am hoping to do a blog home tour this year…something along the lines of inside the {real} house of an interior designer.

Stay tuned…

home is…filling up walls.
