So, now that I have the power to download my photos from our cruddy little point and shoot camera, I realize there have been a few things I haven't blogged about.
Probably because..... who cares, right?
Well, anyway. Here are the 'befores' of the gallery wall I did behind the sofa. I started out with the two black and white prints with the navy matting (they're the ones hanging on the wall). I got them from my friend Kirsten. I still really like them, but that wall needed a little something more dramatic.
So I went around the house and gathered all of the art I had. Almost all of it is hand-me-down......much of it from Kirsten.
Anyway, I stacked it against the sofa to get an overall feeling of how it would look:
Did you know most of what I own is a hand-me-down? It's true. Sad, but true.
Anyway, I selected the pieces I was going to use and then I layed them on the floor to mock up an arrangement:
Then I traced the pictures on some art paper that I borrowed from the Noodle and taped everything on the wall.
I stacked up the pictures all over the house and left them there for months and months until I got tired of moving them around when I had to clean.
I washed my slipcover. And decided the window treatments needed to be raised:
I waited another month or two before I asked Zuddy to help me hang everything.
I never took a photo.
And I will do it tomorrow after I'm finished washing windows :)
