Gallery Wall — Chapter One

I suppose we’re more accurately somewhere around chapter eight. Assuming this make-believe book is around 20 chapters long, of course. My implications with the “Chapter One” title were to say that we’re not finished yet. And now I’ve gone and confused the hell out of you.

Let’s start again, shall we?

I’ve finished curating photos and artwork for our gallery wall! The next step is to lay out all of the frames exactly how we want them hung on the wall (currently the frames are in no particular order), and then get ’em hung.

We have some wedding pictures (Doy. Our wedding was only four months ago so it’s still fresh on the brain) mixed in with some art projects, mixed in with a few new designs that I whipped together for this particular project.

That big typography piece in the back was a total surprise from some dear friends of ours.

It is Steve Jobs commencement speech at Stanford University screen-printed on white heavyweight matte paper, with gloss black ink. If you’d like to have your very own, it’s your lucky day: he is selling them on Etsy! 25% of the proceeds will go to “Demand Cures Today” to help fight pancreatic cancer, so you can feel extra awesome about buying one.

A few of the other little things I designed were inspired from designs I found on Pinterest. And since I’m not selling them, and I’m just enjoying them from the comfort of my own home, I felt A-OKAY about adapting the designs so closely.

Because you can’t have too many letters in your house I whipped up an H with lots of adorable baby H’s:

You probably can’t even see this guy in the larger picture, but he cracks me up every time I look at him:

And because I’m a soft piece of sentimental goo, this one is my favorite (our first dance was La Vie En Rose by Louis Armstrong):


Inspiration from here

Here’s another shot of them all together — in no particular order:

I can’t wait to get them all hung. I’ve never displayed so many pictures together so I really don’t have a clue as to how it’s going to turn out. Hope for the best, plan for the worst — that’s my motto. We’re planning on hanging them sometime in the next week which will sort of be our trial run. Once we have the walls painted we’ll have to rehang them all, but I’m okay with that. I don’t feel as much pressure to get it right the first time. It’s that whole practice-makes-perfect thing.

I have a hot date tonight that I’m excited about, and then hopefully we’ll get some projects crossed off one of our many lists. Updates on Monday. I wish everyone a happy Friday and an eventful weekend!
