I’ve been wanting to create a floral gallery wall for a while now. It just seems kinda dreamy and feminine and you guys know, I am adding those kinds of touches to my home these days! So when I ran across a gorgeous, original chalk piece in Round Top a couple months ago, I knew it was a sign from the Heavens to get started!
And from that point, the hunt was on for the perfect pieces to complete my dream wall! At this point in time, I still wasn’t 1000% sure where it was going to go, but we’ll get to that later!
As it always does, the puzzle pieces all fell into place and it just started coming together! I will say, even though I found some amazing anchor pieces, this wall still is and will remain a work in progress for the foreseeable future! Isn’t that some of the fun, though? Now I will have something to hunt for when I go thrifting, outside of the normal list, like brown bottles, brown transferware and the usual silver!
I’ve said this before and I will die on this hill, but not everything has to come together at the same time and right away. I know it can be challenging, but sometimes we need to sit with things and let is happen to us, not the other way around! And when it came time to start the floral wall, that is exactly what I did when trying to decide where I wanted it to go!
My breakfast nook area has had those vegetable prints behind the couch for some time now, and honestly, it felt like time for a change there, and what better place for a gorgeous floral wall and a statement!! So those veggie prints moved to my dining room for now, and it was time to let the fun begin!
As I said before, that big, gorgeous chalk artwork was my anchor and I wanted everything to flow around that! Really, there is no rhyme or reason for how I put these pieces up, I just went with my heart, and well, I don’t think it failed me!
Nonetheless, I absolutely LOVE this little wall, and reclaiming my home since my divorce has felt so good! Projects like these make up some of the pieces that are slowly putting me back together, truly! And now I have a beautiful start to a floral wall and a new thing to be on the lookout for when I’m out and about! This wall will likely shuffle and shift around over the years to come, making it better, improving, kind of like we all do– and I think that’s beautiful!
