By now, we've all seen my crappy mock-up..
Which I've started to bring to life when I recovered the slipper chairs and painted the wall blue.
Then I threw another project on my to-do list, and added a geometric design above the plant ledge and started bringing in thought-out throw pillows.
But there's still the whole gallery wall to tackle. And DIYing it will be a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a lot of frames, but I still have to buy the glass and have it cut to size, which means it's not going to be as cheap as I'd want.
And I'm just tired of there not being anything on my wall.
So here's my temporary solution.
I got the idea when I was writing a post and trying to get the link to my Squared2 post. I googled "Lady Goats Squared2", and Ana White's page came up! Her squared2 queen headboard popped up, and I thought, "Hey! That would look good in here!" (and, upon further investigation, someone else had already done this as wall art!!). Niiice! So I bought a 2x2 (and used scraps for the rest), and spent a nap building this.
I thought about painting it white, but you would all have expected that, right?
So it got 2 bottles of Valspar's New Avocado spray paint and screwed into the studs.
But let me point out a few other things about this picture!
First, I have a serious laundry folding issue.
And I got a new tray for all my coffee table books and new fabric to make pillow covers out of (the blue on the left is Waverly's "Fun Floret Spa", and I can't remember what the green one is called!). There's also the cord for the lighting on the plant ledge that's sticking up on top. Ew. The shelves will balance the wall a little (making it kind of symmetrical, without using another leaning shelf).
And I am asking you all now to keep bothering me about my temporary solution! As much as this big, green, geometric design on my pretty blue wall makes me smile, it's just not what I ultimately want.
It's. Only. Temporary!
