Gallery Wall - Had To Give It A Try

I've never done a gallery wall, and I really wanted to start small with one above my desk.

I shopped my house I found these pretty pink vintage style pictures.



This mirror came from my Mum. It belonged to my Nana, who passed away a few years back, she received it as a gift just after they immigrated to Australia from Ireland in the early 50's. It was the first thing she had here that wasn't an "essential" item.


I also added a cork board I had covered in fabric gifted Heather at The Beating Hearth had sent me & my corset key hooks, aka the boobs. 


DIY Delight or Disaster? I like it, I'm not sure if I ticked all the home decorator boxes with it, but it's making me happy so it doesn't matter if it's wrong. Shopping the home, mine and Mum's total win, delight. Oh and more on my new computer desk tomorrow.

Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  12. That mirror is so elegant, I could see why it was considered a non-essential, and it fits right in with the rest of your gallery wall. Your Mel style is really showing through. Love the pink, white and airy feeling. Looking forward to more reveals!
