Family Gallery Wall



Happy Friday Folks!
Last week I had the pleasure of chill-ax-in with Holly at Bella Nest!

I shared a little project with her readers, so now it's your turn! Enjoy!

I have been wanting to put together A Family Gallery Wall FOREVER!

I love the way they look, and Love arranging "special" items that mean so much to me.

Here We go!

Find "The Wall"
Gather all your items/photos
Start with the middle
And Build around it!

And you create...

Starting from the Top..then left to right.
1. MARRS Est.1998 {yep I made that}
2. Photo of Bryan and I
3. Photo of Derek {5}
4. My grandma's wall sconce that she passed onto me and my oldest son Aaron's Artwork
5. My side of the family, Mom/dad, g-mas/papas
6. Photo of Mason {9} Aaron{13}
7. A VERY Old family photo!{yes it's on my list to get a new one taken}
8. My grandma's wall sconce w/ Mason's Artwork
9. My husbands side of the family, Mom/dad, g-mas/papas
10. M monogram for Marrs that I made


Can I just tell you that I LOVE my New Family Gallery Wall!? It makes me smile every single time I look at it! 


 Next week on my blog I will be showing you how to create your own:
MARRS
EST. 1998
SIGN!

Have a wonderful LONG weekend my friends!

  4. We have a gallery wall on our stair landing and I cant tell you how important "start in the middle" would have been if I'd known that a year ago! It was so hard to make it balance out. I love your mix of photos and items!

  6. Super cute, Jen! I'm working on one too...or at least I'm pretending to, but it's totally overwhelming me! I have something in the middle right now, but I was worried that starting in the middle might not be the way to go. Thanks for telling me that it IS (and now maybe I'll stop using that as my excuse not to keep going haha!).

  17. It looks so good! I have a blank wall that would be perfect for this, and I've been meaning to get some photos up, but all we have right now is one good photo from our wedding :-) Suppose we have to start somewhere!

    I have a brand new link party going on and I'd be thrilled if you'd link this up!

  21. Great gallery wall! :D Love how you broke it down and wrote about what makes it special for you and your family. Happy to find you today via Get Outta My Head Please's Facebook wall. Looks like you do a lot of vlogging as well. I've tried it a few times. I want to get better at it. I think the videos add a lot to a blog. Keep up the good work! :D Shan from Family Brings Joy
