I attempted to break up the huge empty wall with some picture frames back in February (pictured above). It worked for the time being, but lacked any sort of umph. I guess it was better than a blank wall though right? :)
So I figure, why not do a gallery wall? I wasn't sure how this would look or if I would like it, so instead of putting a gazillion holes in the wall, I put up some paper instead to see the layout, the spacing, the height...etc.
Then I still wasn't so sure. Cuz you never really know until you see it. So when I started to hang the frames, I hung them all on the outside perimeter and then had the hubs hold up the subway art in the middle for me to get a good eye for it :)
I figure the best thing for my sanity and anxiety is to just move it to the other side. Then the next question was, what to put there instead?
I have had this vision in my head for sometime now about putting up a curtain along the door way. So much so, that back in February when I 'redid' the entryway, I even used a tension rod and threw a curtain on it and had it hang there for awhile to see how Max did with it....ya' know, ball getting caught in the curtain....all comes crashing down..etc etc. Well, it wasn't too bad, but the hubs hated it. But to my defense, it was on the left side of the doorway, so it did get in the way.
Now with the table moved, I knew I had to try it one more time. Kind of a last ditch effort, but hang it on the right side instead.
I fell in love with it.
To tie the curtain to the side, I just used some old jute I had lying around. When you look at it, it may appear to be a robe and belt from the Old Testament but I assure you it's not :) lol
