We Did a Black and White Gallery Wall
I can’t promise this space will stay like this. I’ve only changed it up about five times so far, but I thought I’d share what we did here if I end up changing it again. I go back and forth between wanting things to be minimal and then the next day I want it to be cottage-style. I sort of mix the two, which can be challenging. Wherever I have black and white details, I also add in some wicker baskets. We have been debating on getting the living room painted, so that may change this space entirely. But for now, I love the minimal look and how easy it is to keep clean. I was tired of styling the console table, and it just looked too cluttered in that corner space. Once our new coffee table arrives (furniture is so hard to get right now!), everything may look more in place.
Black and White Photo Gallery Wall
It took a while for me to find the perfect black and white frames. I liked the ones at Ikea but didn’t want to spend time adding the glass to them. I like a few other websites, but they were so expensive. The matte black frames I found from Target were perfect and of amazing quality for the price. I really wanted the frame to be thin from the front, and they were exactly that!
Hanging Picture Frames
Kyle placed the cardboard from the back of the frames on the wall to get the spacing perfect. He’s much more precise than I am. I would have had them hanging in all kinds of uneven lines.
Order Black and White Photos
I had the prints done at CVS because I love their one-hour photo pickups. I’m too impatient to order the better quality prints that get shipped to me. We had three different entryway tables we tried in the space, and it just looked off. I found this bench at Homegoods, and I thought it would look great in that space. I topped it with some pillows from Target and TjMaxx. I found almost the same bench at Target cheaper (I wish I would have seen that sooner!) We’ve been thinking about doing the waterfall console from West Elm in this space. I love the idea of putting baskets under it but don’t like the idea of styling the top.
ps-I saw a sock at the bottom of the stairs but decided to still use this photo because who doesn’t have random socks lying around? 😆 I feel like my socks go where they please. Thanks for stopping by to read today! ♥️
