It took me a few years to collect the pieces of art I wanted to use for a gallery wall in our guest room ~ the Port Room.
I had a few things in mind for the pieces for the Port Room gallery wall:
Recycling: I wanted to find all the pieces at thrift stores
Theme: All the pictures needed to feature a boat or ship
Organic: I wanted collection to look curated – not planned. The frames could be any color, the art could be any style – but nothing matchy-matchy.
Consensus: Each piece needed to get a thumbs up from the kids. No matter how eclectic, if it made us happy, we bought it.
Combining all the different pieces was a little tricky – it was a little like putting together a giant puzzle. Whew!
It’s great to finally see all the art on the wall.Read More
