I used to be that kind of person, you know the one, find a picture, hammer a nail, hang it up with no forethought, no planning just impulsively hang it where I think it should be. I thought nothing of hammering tons of holes, there was no measuring, no planning just pure instinct and impulse. I actually use to drive my step dad crazy because not only do I hang pictures anywhere, I changed rooms around a lot so moving pictures and nailing new holes was a regular occurrence. Truly I think he was worried I would eventually end up with no wall left.
Living with Kent has taught me patience and planning. Now before I hang something he makes me stop and think… so you can imagine the havoc the concept of a gallery wall would create… Kent only asked that I wait, think about it and try and plan it out. I am sure his intention was for me to provide the vision and he would do the measuring, hammering etc.
So I did plan, and arranged and rearranged all week.
and then came the weekend and Kent was in Winnipeg and I was in Ottawa and there was an ice storm so what’s a gal to do….Well this will shock those that know me but I actually did plan out, then measure and even used a level, I know, me planning and a level, go figure.
I took my time and rearranged the pictures as I was going but I will tell you I am super pleased with the outcome.
and yes those of you that frequent Target probably recognize a few pieces.
The beer bottle burlap was made by my sister for me she has made me several fun signs like my House Rules andPool signs)
New Kent Vineyards is a beautiful Vineyard in Kent County Virginia, a place I highly recommend you visit if you are near Williams burg.
And oops added a new picture from Minted, because it is an evergreen process.
