I started something fun in our front living room this week & I wanted to share it with those of you who haven’t seen it on my Instagram stories [I share a lot of random things I’m up to there.. let me know if you want to see more!] I have been collecting vintage panoramic photos for a few years now & before we moved to this house they honestly wouldn’t fit in any room in any of our homes, but I finally found a little corner to gather them in & like I always say, it’s the little things that make me happy…
I’ve found most of these at flea markets & antique stores & this isn’t the whole collection, but I’ve decided to only put military themed photos on this wall. My pan is to hang two more below the current bottom photo & then above the top one I want to hang an architectural piece or something to top off the collection. If you have any fun ideas… let me know! I love how this collection is adding a wall treatment to this area & also bringing our love for the military into our cottage style living room. My veteran husband is quite proud. So are you wondering how big the bottom panoramic photo is going to be? 6ft. Yup, a 6ft antique panoramic photo. Can’t wait to get this gallery wall finished & share it with you guys!
Honestly… to hang these I used my Ryobi nail gun because that’s usually how I roll. I maybe should hang things the proper way, but I love using a nail gun & we know it’s not moving after that… so you better measure twice & use a level so you know it’s exactly where you want it. I’ll update you as soon as I get the wall done… what do you think of the gallery wall so far? I’m just so excited that I got some things up on the walls in one part of our home. That’s a good feeling when you are living in a fixer upper! Thank you guys so much for stopping by the blog today & be sure to find me on Facebook & Instagram for more behind the scenes! xx
