My Living Room Wall

13

I've shared some snippets of my living room (here, here, and here), but so far I haven't shared any of my sofa or the wall behind it. There's been a big blank spot on the wall for awhile--that's why! I have a project planned for that spot, but it's been taking me longer than I expected to finish it up, so when Printic offered to send me some "polaroids," I thought they'd be perfect to fill that space and make my wall somewhat finished...for now, at least.

Living room

I taped the photos up on the wall and framed them. As you can tell, I love washi tape! I also used some to tape up some blue thistles too and to "frame" some silhouettes of Ben and I.

On a side note, I really need a new camera lens so I can get the whole room in one shot! Any recommendations?

Framed polaroids

For my Printic order, I got some photos that I've been loving on Pinterest to make a little inspiration wall. These would also be perfect for Instagram photos, since they're square!

The doily pillow above is an easy DIY that I did a few years ago. It's just a plain pillow cover with a doily hand-stitched onto it!

On top of the frame below the cardboard deer are some stamps that Ben made by carving some corks--they're a B, an A, and a heart. You can see my birch round coasters on our side table too!

Besides finishing our living room wall over the weekend, I also watched The Great Gatsby (so good), worked on a project that I'll share later this week, scheduled my guest posts for while I'm on vacation (it's coming up!), and relaxed a lot on that sofa with the fire burning. It rained all weekend long, so it was a good weekend to spend indoors and get things done. What about you--what did you do over the weekend??

    Relaxing on the sofa with a fire burning sounds like an amazing way to spend the weekend!

    Love the printed photos -- great idea to fill up some wall space!

    It looks great! Do you ever have problems with washi tape not sticking well to walls? I've been wanting to make some kind of Polaroid or Instagram display for awhile now. Your version is really cute!

      Thanks Renae! I taped the photos to the wall with a loop of blue painter's tape first, then when I had everything where I wanted it, I added the washi tape as more of a decorative touch. Because yeah, the washi tape isn't very strong. It works great for framing things like our silhouettes, but for actually securing something to the wall, it's good to have some reinforcement.

    I did this above my sofa last week! I love the idea of mixing lots of different items on the wall! I have a lot of artwork and lot of little things so this was the perfect way for me hang everything. My favorite part is that the wall is ever-evolving! I wish I could send a picture but I don't have a blog or instagram or pintrest...

    I am new to your blog but so far, I have loved every minute of it!

      Thank you Lilly! You should email me a photo--I'd love that :) I love that my wall can be ever-evolving too. That's the nice thing about not spending too much time and money on framing.
