I've been wanting to create a gallery/focal wall in our playroom for months. My desire was to create a space where I could artfully display Evelyn (and Will's) artwork or other child-themed prints (like the white one in the above picture that I created after being inspired by an identical one on Etsy).
But deciding I wanted to paint this wall a bold color was met with some resistance. In fact the night I bought paint and sent this picture to my good friend Megan she told me, "I honestly could not hate that color more." To her credit though... this is no where close to what the actual color is!
All of the frames were from my mom except for two that I bought for $1 from Salvation Army. My original plan was to paint them all the same color but part of me loves the eclectic look of them mismatched. I still haven't decided. I'll probably paint them all to match later when I want to mix it up!
Tommy is framing out an old white board I have which I then plan to paint yellow and hang on the lower part of the wall for the babes to color on. Because of the bar stools, we can't really put any furniture there.
I'll also be adding a roman shade in some type of neutral/patterned fabric. Eventually :)
I still need to touch up the trim here and strip the hardware and spray paint it in a bronzed finish. All in good time :)
Now I just need to find somewhere else to use up the other half gallon of paint...
