Industrial Vignettes #4 - Gold Mirror Gallery Wall

This wall has been planned for least the idea of it; mostly vintage (or faux vintage) gilded framed mirrors...except for a few key items.

Such as the numbers I have been collecting for years. (I have been so happy to feature some of my favorite scripture as a way to use them!)

Anyone know this reference? 14...6? It was the one that got this woman on the right path. 

My gilded M is from TJ Maxx years ago...antlers were from a friend years ago. The two larger mirrors on either side were some of my first purchases when moving into my home 12 years ago. The others are from thrift stores here and there...some are vintage, some are not. Some I toned down with a wash of greige paint. Some are picture frames with faux vintage glass made with Krylon Looking Glass paint.

Getting things spaced properly and level is the hardest thing about a gallery wall. I use a combination of measuring and eyeballing, with a healthy dose of patching nail-holes-gone-wrong.

This is the first thing you see when you walk into my living room...sort of. It feels good to get it finished!

I still have plenty to do in this room...paint the French chairs, style the desk and primitive hutch on the opposite side of the room, and figure out how to make a coffee table from the crates I found last month. First, the mantel needs tweaking...

Word for the Day:
John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

This is a thing of beauty! I do not know how you arranged all this, but it is wonderful. Do you lay everything on the floor or go straight to the wall?

I really like your gallery wall! The gold pillows on the couch really make it all pop!

Your gallery wall is fabulous! I had to laugh at your patching nail holes, because under every single thing hanging on our walls are at least 2 more holes that didn't work out!
