This {gallery} wall is talkin'!


I have been planning this gallery wall for Hayleigh's room for...ever. I have been working on the pieces for it for a couple of months now. It has been one of those projects where parts of it have been strewn all over my house...spray painted frames piled up on the kitchen cart, glue and button covered canvases making a home in my linen closet and scrap papers covering my dining room table. Well, I am glad to say it is finally finished! I am pretty happy with the final product and so is Hayleigh! Her reaction actually was, " You made this for ME?! You are the best Mommy in the whole world."  After that I wouldn't even care if the finished product looked like poop and if I had known she would say that I would have finished it weeks ago!
The whole purpose behind the project was to create more of a designated play area in Hayleigh's room so we could move some more toys upstairs to her room.



The gallery wall also brought some different colors into her very purple room and gave me a chance to display some of our favorite photos.


Here is a bit of a breakdown of all the wall entails besides pictures of Hayleigh and our family playing. I mod-podged fun paper onto wooden letters to spell out "play". I made a button monogram (which I am not thrilled with since I think it resembles and "X" rather than and "H"). On the bottom left there is a pic-niked collage that says "You are my Sunshine". I also made paper birds hung from ribbon to fill in spaces. On the right hand side of this picture are some prints from Etsy. I bought the counting peacock from this seller and the I love you ABCs from this seller.


I made some paper bunting. I also made some button art that says "love" as well as another pic-nik collage of Jeremiah 1:5.  I also had wooden hearts that were already hanging in her room that I reused.



 I just love the character in her room, especially the built in shelves and this corner! Whenever we move I think I will miss her room most of all, but in the mean time I hope she enjoys her new play corner!

Linking up at one or more of these fun parties!
