Gallery Wall

This will be a quick post, but I really wanted to show you one of my favorite things! The gallery wall. When we moved in I hesitated on putting up pictures because I just couldn’t decide which ones to put where and how to disburse them throughout the house.

From House to Home: Wooden Wine Holder {before}

Score! While scanning through some Craigslist postings last weekend I came across one for a wooden wine holder. After some texting and a shady meet n greet in a grocery store parking lot (by my hubby), I now own this awesome hand-made piece.


The wine holder is super heavy, I mean incredibly heavy, so I’m a little nervous about how we (my husband) will be hanging this. Before hanging this baby in the dining room, I need to paint it. I’m thinking of painting the darker areas white and then sanding down a bit & then sanding and staining the lighter areas a dark espresso color. What do you think? I can’t wait!

The hooks that are included seem to be a little weird to me. Hubby said we could hang the bottle opener from one of them. Maybe some glass charms? Not really sure if I’ll keep the hooks or not, but I will be posting the completed project. Any readers have some ideas to share with me?
