Remember that post waaaayyyy back when (like over a year ago) when I posted about the Rustic/Farmhouse gallery wall that I wanted to do behind our kitchen table? Well, I finally finished it thanks to a trip to the Magnolia Silos last month.
If you follow me on Instagram, it’s likely that you’ve seen the wall progress since I started this little project of mine. I used about half of the items from my mood board and once I got those in place, I had to make adjustments because I couldn’t get all of the inspiration pieces to fit. Seems the wall isn’t actually as big as it is in my head. LOL But this is how pretty much all of my projects go.
It all started with the clock and grew from there. The clock was my inspiration. I gathered pieces that had warm tones (wood) and black. I LOVE typography so you’ll notice many of the pieces are words or phrases that have a kitchen theme. And the white, well it ties in with our trim and light fixture.
My wall was finally coming together but I just needed two more small pieces to finish it. For the longest time I had pieces of kraft colored cardstock taped on the wall in the size of what I needed. I mainly put them up there because hubby has a little bit of OCD and kept pushing me to find something because the wall looked SO unbalanced to him. The hilarious part is that since I had the fork and spoon up there, people who came to visit thought the pieces of cardstock were supposed to be napkins!
But this gallery wall finally came together after we stopped at Magnolia Silos on the way back from the beach. It was kind of a surprise pit stop and it was a very quick one but we managed to grab something that would work perfect on the wall! I initially wanted a couple of mason jar sconces so I could add some greenery or flowers to the wall but when I saw the sheet metal vases, I immediately snatched up two!
Once we got home, I picked up a couple of black hooks and the wall was finally finished!
BUT WAIT! Believe it or not, this wall actually isn’t done yet. Don’t worry though, I’m not adding more to the gallery part of it. Our plan is to do like board & batten but with, wait for it……………..
I really wanted to go all the way to the ceiling but because the wall carries over to the other side of the hallway, we compromised and decided to go a little over half way up the wall. When this will happen I have no idea but rest assured, I will post another update when that happens.
That table needs to be replaced or painted too but that ain’t gonna happen until my children get to an age where they don’t destroy things. There is marker, paint, glue stains all over that thing!
