A Gallery Wall at the Top of the Stairs


In a tall, tall house up the big winding stairs was an important blank wall that was really quite boring.

Creating a gallery wall at the top of the stairs by using things on hand. Gallery wall at Poofing the Pillows.

So the lady of the house went digging in the closets where treasures can hide until discovered.
She found things from the present and things from the past.

Grabbed a hammer and nails and hung them up fast!

And that my friends, is how to make a wall look great right before you hear the doorbell ring.

Sorry y'all, I don't usually rhyme but just couldn't help myself this time. It's true this gallery wall was created without buying anything. All of this came out of the closets when I was preparing to host the big baby shower back in January. This is one of my favorite projects in the house and it was almost accidental. Don't you love it when a project is accidentally wonderful?

This is fabulous! And the part I love the most? The chalkboard/writing piece. It really looks terrific, Stacey! I can see why it might be your favorite project!

It is great. I would love looking at that each time I came in and especially headed upstairs.

This looks wonderful, and your spacing is great! I actually liked the rhyming ;) I have a wall in my hallway that needs this treatment but gallery walls kind of intimidate me.

I love your gallery wall, Stacey! I do think when we are in a hurry sometimes we do a better job. Maybe it is because we don't have time to doubt our decisions but go for it!

What a gorgeous staircase! Love the mix of items you chose.

It looks great, Stacey! Yes, I do love it when I can use what I already have. The gallery wall over our bed in the master was created the same way. I didn't buy anything new. I LOVE that staircase, too. Have a great week!

Love the gallery wall and your stairs are stunning.

Mary Keels said...

Beautiful job! Yes, I love it when you pull something together super fast like that. It's like when you suddenly realize you have little time to do it, you get super inspired in a big way. Yeah, I crammed for tests too! LOL! It really does look so good!

Love, love, love it Stacey!

Your wall turned out great! The best projects are the ones where you can use things you already have and love.

Art @ Home said...

LOVE your gallery wall, my friend! You know what I like most about them? They are (usually) so personal. I like its location in your home, too. You rock!

It looks lovely and your stairs are amazing too! :) I had to smile at them thinking "if I was a little girl I'd pretend that I was a princess coming down the stairs "! :)

Your wall looks amazing, don't you love when that happens, accidentally and without spending a dime you create something fabulous? That's the best decorating!!

I love gallery walls and yours looks so pretty with the staircase in the foreground. They don't have to be perfect but they look it when you are done!

That is most definitely a wonderful gallery wall! There's no way I could have hung something like that by myself. I'd have a million holes in the walls. Lol! And by the way, your staircase is gorgeous!!!
