Gallery Wall Around a TV

November 10, 2014

Happy Monday, friends!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  We made some great progress organizing our rental and it’s finally starting to feel more settled and comfortable.

One of the things we checked off that had been on my to-do list was to hang a gallery wall in the living/family room area.  We converted a stand from the old office that previously housed our printer and scanner into an entertainment stand for our tv.  The wall behind it was looking pretty bare and I wanted to liven it up with some art and family photos.  Hanging a gallery wall around a tv can be tricky.  Here is how I did it.

I don’t want to spend any money on design elements or decor for our rental, since we will only be here for a short time.  We need to save that cash for the house.      It’s been a fun challenge to “shop my house” and look at my existing pieces in a new way, in a new space.

For the wall, I gathered a collection of photos, art, etc. that had been in various rooms in our old house and laid it all out in front of me.  There were a few pieces I knew I wanted on the wall, but the rest was flexible.  When working around a TV, I go for more of an organic process rather than planning it all out ahead of time.  When I thought I wanted something in a spot, Jon would hold it up for me to look at and I would give the thumbs up to hang it, or try something else until it felt like the flow was right.  Here’s what the process looked like (we kept Ruby entertained with a movie– guess which one!):

The space had a small bump out for the fireplace so I incorporated it into the gallery wall to add some dimension.

Here’s what we ended up with:  artwork taken from our previous living room and family room, family photos and the “S” from an upstairs hallway gallery wall and the living room, the Rhino head was in the playroom, and the mirror was in the guest room.

Every once in a while it’s fun to mix things up.  If you’re feeling stuck in a rut but don’t want to spend money on new decor at the moment, try shopping the other rooms in your house.  I promise it will make you feel like you’re living in a whole new space!

I’ve got a good Treasure Hunting Tuesday coming up tomorrow… involving some of my staple favorites and a really lucky find.

    I love this! I have been trying to figure out what to do with the wall my TV is on as well, and this may have just decided for me. I love the way you posted a picture each time you added something new. I loved scrolling through to see what was next with each picture! Great post!
