I was getting pretty sick of my plain wall above my craft desk in my office. I mean, it wasn't plain. . .it was just kind of dull.
Plus, I've been unintentionally collecting all sorts of random things that would make a beautiful gallery wall (remember this one?). I put off starting it because I didn't have everything, but then I realized the fun in a gallery wall is filling in the holes when you find the right piece!
But before I show you the wall, check out this twist on a glass front jewelry case.
I purchased these two cute wall hooks, probably meant for coats and things, at Urban Outfitters when I was in Chicago. I just loved them. I thought it would be an unusual way to hang a few necklaces that I was working on for the jewelry shop!
But instead of hanging them on the wall alone, I wanted to "frame" them. When I came across this jewelry case at Marshalls for $16.00 with removable glass, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I screwed into the linen side of the jewelry box until just the tip of the screw emerged from the back.
After I hung this, I scrounged up other things I had laying around my craft room, printed a free print, and started placing.
While there are still holes to fill and details to tend to, I'm impressed with the look overall! I'd like to find a larger print or card to pin into the jewelry case on the far right. I also think I need to find something small to put under the "It is well" print. So, let the search begin!
Until then. I will marvel at my scrounge wall. Not bad for a bunch of random pieces, eh?
