Feathered Gallery Wall

If you follow me on Facebook then you saw when I shared this beautiful picture I found at Goodwill! 


I had every intention of selling it in my booth, but quickly realized I couldn't get rid of it! It sat on the bench in our living room for a week as I pondered where I could hang it. 

There's a narrow wall in our living room between our front door and big picture window that has seen frequent changes because nothing ever felt right. Do you have a space like that in your home?

It started with this desk


Then was replaced with this desk


I would have been content with this wall of samplers done by my grandmother, but two were on loan from my mom for a magazine photo shoot. When I had to give them back, I was left with one little sampler on a tall narrow wall.   


But, thanks to that feather picture, I think I have finally conquered this wall!! 

 
When you stop just to stare at a wall all weekend, that's when you know you've nailed it! 

Speaking of nailing, I was working on this while my son was eating lunch. He must have been watching me because he asked where I learned hammering. He's so cute. 



Decorating the top of this desk has been a challenge for me too, but it all just flows now. 



 That quail....(that is a quail, right?) looks a little angry...


So the feathers, yeah....I hot glued those to the wall... I really did. Whatever works I guess! ;)








So what do you think of my wall?

  24. Thanks for sharing - I found you via the Design, Dining and Diapers link party. I have a lot of old feathers and birds nests I've collected over the years, but have never thought to put them together in an arrangement. I am now following you and am going to pin this for some rainy day inspiration!
