Bless My Husband’s Hanging Skills

Our mini-gallery wall frames have been hung!

For now, most of the “art” is temporary. The grey marbled paper will stay, and potentially the other marbled pieces (bottom left and top left). The turquoise ikat paper in the upper-right will eventually be moved to another frame in our bedroom. The two small pieces in the center are the sloppy result of Brad and I messing around with a watercolor palette and some printer paper. And the gorgeous piece in the left-center was painted by my friend Jess. Aren’t the colors amazing?! It’s going to be moved to a smaller frame, once I have one, though I think the white space makes a cool statement.

Mini Gallery Wall - DIY Watercolors

When my order from Society6 comes in, Earl the octopus will replace Jess’s painting, and the Tchmo abstract cloudscape will replace the ikat paper. We’re not sure what’s going to replace our crappy DIY watercolors in the center yet. Maybe it’ll be less crappy DIY watercolors?

I also framed the yellow and gold ikat and hung it in our living room.

Wall Art Living Room

This collection of frames has been a work in progress since we lived in our last apartment. The Ikea photography has got to go, and soon, it’ll be replaced. Bye bye, random fruit and wildflowers!

Do you ever use placeholder art just to get some frames on the wall?

UPDATE: See how I finally updated my Ikea Rast dressers in this post!
