goob's room - gallery wall reveal

finally i can reveal the gallery wall in goob's room makeover. (all posts related to this room makeover can be found here).

here's a look up the wall.....


it's taken awhile - as i've been rather fussy with the lay out, the frames and the content.

everyone sees this wall when they return from a visit to our laundry and/or main bathroom and toilet.
(as our girls usually keep their doors open during the day)
i see this wall many many times every. single. day.

so i just had to keep tweeking it!! (i like that word 'tweek' - it makes my ocd-ness sound ok!!)

happily i can now say i'm done with the tweaking - and really happy with the results.

here's the view as you walk out from the laundry/bathroom area to the loungeroom.....(you then take a right turn after you see this wall!!!.......just in case you're ever over at my place and want to know your way around!!!!).....

i've posted about some of the pictures on the wall - but i'll add more details over the coming days for anyone that is interested.

after i started to get some of the frames together - i set it out on the floor to get an idea of how it might look......


i then started to change things around - upgrade some frame finishes - generally tweek it!! (is that too much use of the word now?!?!?!)

here's a closer look at the top half of frames....


and here's the bottom half.....


at the base of the wall we've placed the little storage ottoman i posted about here.....


i'll be back tomorrow with some details about the frames if anyone is interested.

it really is nice to see this room transform slowly (although at times i wish it could happen faster). but we are making steady progress - and we're really really liking where it's heading.

oh - and the room is still only painted in undercoat!!!! (and i still haven't touched the trim or the doors - eek!) the white is really growing on us all - i can see it happening to most of the rooms in the house if i get my way!!!

back at uni this week for me - another semester - let's hope it's a good one!

hope you're having a great week.

hugz,

linky up at some wonderful places.....

  13. How many times did you rearrange it until you were happy with it? I like the places you put the pictures and art. I don't think you could rearrange it any better then it is now.
