A little Office Update: The Start of a Gallery Wall

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?

    I love the owl in your corner chair. Did you get it recently at Pier1? I saw an owl there the other day, but walked away because i thought “you’re a grown lady- you don’t need stuffed animals” ….. but never thought to use it as a pillow.

    You are so creative and good at seeing new uses for existing items. I probably would NOT have thought of that with the frames and hooks! Your office makes me want to get it together and decorate mine (or at least make it not look like a bomb went off in there).
