Here's where we started in March with the dining room.
Where we are today....
Yep. Some key items have been installed but man, what an uphill battle this project has been. Missing rugs, a Twitter fight with the company behind the missing rug scandal; missing lights, many delayed deliveries etc...Let's just say I spent a great deal of time apologizing for snafus. Not cool. But it happens.
Anywho, back to more fun. This was our living room inspiration. I can't find the before but it pretty much looked like the dining room. Dark, gloomy, blah with more blah.
This week we installed the mother of a gallery wall that challenged us to the 10th degree..I don't have a secret/easy peesy trick for installing gallery walls. I mean, I do lay them out on the floor and hash a plan, but that plan changes often so it's never an easy process. Even worse, if I'm using frames already purchased by a client, we'll often encounter those horrible frames with the worst hanging mechanisms known to man, you know the kind with the two tiny triangle flaps that you should somehow be able to attach to hooks simultaneously. I HATE those things and NEVER knowingly, purchase such frames. EVER.
Anywho, Shaggy and I persevered....
Hours later we had some great looking walls, if I may say so myself.
That's all folks. For now. Our client is delivering her fourth child today so we'll take a break until she's ready to rock and roll with the finishing touches.
We'll also finish the family room/kitchenette area and add all accessories then.
What are your tricks for gallery walls? Please share. My aching neck will be eternally grateful.
