Gallery Wall Reveal and Free Printable

From the time I was 10 years old, I had a keepsake box.
It started out with little things- movie ticket stubs, notes from friends, a few pictures of my family, and even a piece of confetti I’d pocketed from my first concert to see N’Sync. (Maybe Justin Timberlake had touched it!)  
As I got older, that box grew. Letters from high school boyfriends were added (and later removed once that phase of life ended).
To this day, it is where I stash my favorite fingerpaint artwork by my daughter and favorite photos of our family. But the world needed to see them. What good did they do hidden in a box only to be seen by me once in a blue moon?
So I framed them on the most visible wall in our house.

It’s hard to believe it looked like this six months ago. I’m really glad I didn’t do that pallet wall I’d originally planned.

I catch myself staring at it all the time, and I can’t help but smile. It’s our entire past together: our engagement pictures, photos from our wedding ceremony, Olivia sleeping at just a few days old, a few beach vacations, moments with our parents and siblings, and I wouldn’t change a single square inch of it.
I added a map of Ireland a few weeks ago as a nod to our Irish heritage.

And yesterday, I made a silhouette of Olivia on burlap. I whipped up a family definition printable to go along with it. Once these babies were hung up, it was like the cherry on the sundae. It’s done!

So now, you can probably guess, I’m staring at it even more. It certainly makes our suburban house feel less like a builder grade shoebox.
The printable I made completely sums up what our little family of three is all about.
If you have a wall needing some lovin’ in your house, feel free to snag the download below. For one like mine, you can run a burlap sheet from your local craft store through your computer printer, frame it, and voila!
Cheap but sentimental. The best things in life are free anyways. πŸ™‚
What do you think of it now that it’s all done? Am I getting anywhere with this crazy quest for an eclectic cottage?

  1. Love all of your ideas! Now I just need your help on showing the laminate floating floor. πŸ™‚ I think I can do it myself. At least I pray I can. Just need that extra boost. Wanting to do it in my kitchen.

  2. Thank you for all of the lovely inspiration! I’m so glad to have found your site. Your affordable ideas have got my “wheels a spinnin’!” Where did you find the lovely bookcase and chair pictured in front of the gallery wall? Your decorating course has been so inspirational and doable! Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Heather! We have since switched things up a bit on this wall, but I found the chair at the thrift store for $60 and I found the bookcase/cabinet on Craigslist for $50 and painted it with milk paint. πŸ™‚ So glad the course has been helpful!

  3. It looks like some of your frames didn’t have glass. Did you put the picture directly on the wall? What did you get it to stick with? It’s beautiful. Come do mine.

    1. Thank you, Kristi! You’re right. I chose to take the glass out of my frames since some didn’t have glass to begin with from the thrift store. I just attached the pictures directly to the wall using Command strips.

  4. It’s lovely…made me smile remembering a similar set up that I’d done going up our stairs when my boys were growing up! πŸ™‚ Then I started in on the living room…another area…couldn’t have enough ! πŸ™‚

    You have a wonderful display !
