Evie's Big Girl Room {A Gallery Wall}

Progress on Evie's room has been slow going. I have had ideas and plans since we moved in (last August!!), but then life happens and projects take time and things cost money and you get knocked up and your buddy craigslist forsakes you. Sigh.

But some progress has definitely been made, so I thought I would share a bit today. Is anyone even still reading this little blog?? I know I've been absent!

Here is the original amateur inspiration board I put together for her room:

I've stayed pretty true to the colors and feel of the board. Using that floral fabric to make her curtains definitely helped. I love how fun it is.
I actually had another gallery wall up across the room, above her dresser, for a while. But then I decided to hang a mirror over there instead. Not long after, I came across this awesome pic on Pinterest and fell in love. I think it's so cool and different than your typical gallery, and I love how they went all the way up to the ceiling. I would need to gather some more art to truly replicate it, but I'm loving things so far!  
Everything up there is a diy project of some kind... framed gift wrap, a diy mirror made from a charger, a framed brass butterfly (flea market find), some original art, etc. I just finished the two watercolors (in the gold frames) and I'm not totally satisfied with them, but I needed to get something up! So those will likely change, and I may add a few other tiny pieces to fill things in.
This Shakespeare quote is puuuuuurfect for my girl. :)

Hopefully I'll have more to share of her room soon!


  1. Love it! Her curtains are amazing and your sweet details are perfect!! Xoxo! I have a cold, but once it subsides, I want to come meet sweet Beckett!!

  2. I'm still here! :) Her wall looks so wonderful!! I wish I could do something cute like that in my kids rooms but I know they would just barf and insist on Lego-Spider-Dinosaur something that would look hideous. Can't wait to see what the rest looks like!

  3. Yay... it looks FAB.... keep going!


I ♥ your comments! Strange or lovely or somewhere in between, lay 'em on me!
