I’ve been teasing you with sneak peeks this week as I worked on this wall and I am so excited to share the whole thing with you today. For over a year this has been nothing but a plain white wall and a TV on a broken TV stand (thanks movers!). My step-dad gave us a raw wood piece we turned into a TV stand and that inspired us to get to work on the wall.
This isn’t actually a true “BEFORE” since we had already moved out the broken TV stand and replaced it with the new one and have the wood sign on the wall. For the TV stand, we simply added legs to the raw wood piece ($2 each from Home Depot) and painted the whole thing a custom-mixed grey. I shared the Chalkboard Style Wood Sign tutorial earlier this week as well as 12 Awesome TV Gallery Walls that inspired me.
My step-dad also gave us the little table and lamp so I re-painted those to match the TV stand and add a pop of color.
In the below picture, the new Chevron Lampshade, Yellow Wire Basket and Owl Lantern (used as a vase) are all from Target. I painted the owl lantern to match the coral I used in the gallery wall. All of the things on the wall except the arrow (Target) are things we already had and/or re-purposed. We painted old frames and wood plaques to keep this project cheap!
I used my Silhouette CAMEO and gold vinyl to make the movie reel wall decals. The light up arrow which is just LOVE was $10 at Target and is battery operated. It turns off after 3 hours and looks really run lit up a night. The “We are so much more than skin and bone print” is one of my Typographic Print picks from Minted (and is hung with wash tape). The Deer Print is one I drew by hand and digitized. It can be found in my Etsy shop.
The photographs are all pictures my husband took and the wood signs are all ones I made with my Silhouette CAMEO.
And that’s it! It’s feels so much more homey and grown-up having a finished wall behind the TV (and a TV stand without a hole in the top is nice too!) 🙂
You can see the opposite wall of the family room in my post How to Create a Shelved Gallery Wall.
