Gallery wall

My little sister Cassie recently moved into her first home.  They completely renovated it and it's beautiful.  This is one of several posts, showing the makeovers.  Her commentary will be italicized and mine will be in normal print.  Welcome to Cassie's house.

Today we're going to take a look at the stairway gallery wall my sister and I just finished.  This wall was a beast.  The wall had been wallpapered and then painted over.  My sister spent a LOT of time peeling away the paper in one inch squares.  Don't ask her about it.  It was a rough one :)  Here's the wall with part of the wall paper gone.

AFTER:

As mentioned before, the railings were all changed.


Here's the view as you enter her home.


The new stairs are so pretty.


Here's a low down on the different things on the wall.

There are some framed old keys.  I always think framing objects looks cool.  (Sadly, the specimen art needs a little repair.)


The black and white pictures of the knobs above and building below are pictures I took of the Salt Lake temple (which are also available in my etsy shop). 


The black and white canvas is a picture of her husband's grandparents they had blown up.


 

The knobs are from Pier One, but she painted them purple.  They were originally different colors.


We added a little vinyl to fill in an empty space.


I painted and glazed this thrift store frame and we cut some vinyl like the one in my house.


This mini-corbel is from an antique shop.


I think that's about it.


For more gallery wall ideas you can go HERE to see the one I did on my stairway.

Thanks for reading!
