It taken me several months, but I finally finished the other wall in my craft room/office space. The pegboard wall has been done for quite a while now (and was recently featured on Good Housekeeping!) but the rest of the room was completely undone until just last week. I was inspired by a bunch of old vintage frames my stepdad had given me from his moms house. Read on to see how simple it was so put together this DIY Vintage Frame Gallery Wall, which is not just great for a craft room but could be altered to jazz up a wall in any room!
I started by hanging the pink wood rail, which you’ll notice is the same wood that frames my pegboard. I had painted one more piece than I needed. I simply nailed it to the wall using a level and only two nails to start with so I’d be able to hang the frames.
I started by painting all the frames with DecoArt Americana® Chalky Finish™ paint in color Refreshing (from Michael’s). For the Inspiration Frame, I simply hot glued several strands of ribbon to the back and painted mini-clothespins pink.
Next, I put up a small shelf (painted in the color Relic from the Chalky Finish paint line) to hold a diffuser. I took the label off the diffuser and stuck on a few strips of Washi Tape. I also added the same Washi Tape to the light switch. The bucket inside the round frame was a $1 bin Target find. The “I just want to make beautiful things” phrase can be found here in the Silhouette store. I cut it using my Silhouette CAMEO with Adhesive Cardstock and just stuck it on the wall.
I also used the adhesive cardstock to cut the create word to place at the end of the railing so it would look more finished. The cute cork board is from the Martha Stewart Office line at Staples.
The sign with the hook is something that’s been in my craft supply for ages (an old Pick Your Plum score). I attached this Do What You Love printable to it using spray adhesive. Another $1 Taget bucket got a chalkboard label to keep notecards and pens handy (I send one out with orders from my Etsy shop).
Then I hung the frames with ribbon and added a few more nails into the railing. Easy peasy! Two days to a whole new wall of fun. 🙂
