big wall idea



i have been meaning to post about this for a while becuase i think it is a good alternative for a gallery wall when you have a big wall to fill. kevin made the first version of this shelf (not sure what to call it) about 8 years ago. we originally used it in our foyer in our old house...and it had a bunch of his black and white photos on it. when we moved to this house we waited until the basement was finished to break it out again. as usual, after we put it up, kevin thought it needed a little tweaking. it was only the inside frame at first, then he decided to add the outside frame. it looks so much better and sturdy!  now we call it "the flange".



you can see i used more of my gas station numbers here...i cant seem to get enough of them!

i am thinking of starting a new series called "take aways", for quick little tips and ideas like this that you can use in your home in some way. thank you janice for this great suggestion and name:) whaddya think? should i?

ps. feel free to comment:) i like to know people are reading!

It's interesting though I'm not really sure I got the idea about those numbers going up then down. I got big walls full of classic paintings but your idea right there would be lovely to try out.

This big wall idea is not at all boring because you could display different pictures with it. You don't even need picture hangers with this type of shelf.

Sometimes, simple ideas like this make your gallery astonishing. With simple art stuffs and ideas such as this, a plain room can be lively.
