Home Decor: Living Room Wall Collage
I have finally decorated this gigantic wall in my living room!
It has been the bane of my existence for the last couple of months. It was the biggest, blankest wall in the house, and it really made the house look like we had just moved in. It's one of the first walls you see when you walk in the house, and it was just so... so... empty.
I have a list of priorities of what I want to get done in the house, and my top 3 at that moment was:
1. Living Room Wall
2. Living Room Curtains
3. Coffee Bar in the Kitchen
In my mind, I just knew that decorating the wall and putting curtains in the living room would pull the house together immensely. I had originally wanted to put 1 large piece of art on that wall, but have since come to reconsider. I was having a abysmal time trying to find a piece of art. And every time I got on Pinterest, I saw all these beautiful wall arrangements. So of course, Pinterest came to change my mind. Last weekend, we trekked to Target and I picked up a floating shelf and some round mirrors. The first pieces to be collected for my eclectic wall.
Once I put my mind to it, I began to pick up pieces like crazy. I had everything picked out and by Thursday, I was waiting for one piece I'd ordered off Amazon. Of course, it arrived that day! The whole course of the day was altered, and I forced the hubby to hang up my wall collage.
I'm so glad I did, I can't stop staring at it!
This is the piece I ordered from Amazon. I'm always hesitant to order stuff like this online, because you never know how it's going to look in person. Thankfully, I think I love this piece even more now that I have it in front of me.
I got 5 differently sized circle mirrors at Target. I loved that I could place them anywhere, they didn't have to stay together. I didn't realize you could see me until after I took the picture. Hehe.
I was a sucker for these birds.
This was a little wink-wink to the hubby and I, being such huge Oregon Duck fans :)
Decorating the wall has really given the living room some new life. I'm so pleased with how it turned out.
And you can see how different it makes the room look! Ahh, bliss :)
Next up, curtains!
