Gallery Wall

I have been wanting to put something on the huge blank wall behind the TV and I knew that one or two big pieces wouldn’t work.  Gallery walls are popping up all over blogland and Emily Clark inspired me with hers.  She is a designer in Charlotte, be sure to check out her project…………. it is gorgeous !

I downloaded free images from the NYPL and printed them on cardstock.  The theme I went with was all of our interests and hobbies.  The first sewing machine and trading cards for thread for me…….

The first phonograph for Mr. Stitches………….

Some martial arts for my son who is a 2nd degree black belt in Karate….

I framed a scrap of fabric with a print I love…….

When I ran out of stuff I framed a coaster from The Raleigh Times Bar and a picture of my old beagle, Buster.

Maria at Colour Me Happy is doing a series about inexpensive art and since this whole wall only cost $4.00 I’m linking to her party.

I'm also joining BNOTP Metamorphosis party

This is such a great idea! The new trend with flatscreen tv's leaves so much empty space. This is a great solution!
Your gallery wall looks great!

$4? That's crazy good! I love gallery walls, and yours turned out great. I think the best thing about them is incorporating special and unique images. Happy weekend, Tammy!

Tammy, this is a 5 star project in every way !!! I love your subject and the cost, was so unbelieveable. As for a rooster pillow, most likely it would go to a loved friend...lol

I love how all the pieces are personal and not just what the store had in stock. Very nice!
