Things have been a bit quiet here again lately, but that’s mostly due to us being preoccupied with buying our first home!  We’ve lived in a little duplex since we got married 5 years ago, but the time has come to move on to greener (and bigger) pastures!  Over the last year I’ve become increasingly frustrated with the limited space in our little place, so I really can’t wait to have the freedom to complete some of the projects that I’ve dreamt about.  My poor little Pinterest profile has been working overtime!

One of the first things that I’d like to do is to create a gallery wall/shelf, similar to the ones below.  I love that this system can be changed on a whim, without the hassle of drilling and filling holes.

I’ve also re-discovered a great resource for images to populate your picture gallery, called Vintage Printable.  The site used to be a bit of a nightmare to navigate, but it’s improved a lot over the last little while.  Here you can find a huge range of out-of-copyright prints, illustrations and photos, which are available for personal use.  Here are some of my favourites (direct links available from my Pinterest board), but I suggest that you visit the site to find some treasures for your own home.

  1. Thank you for the idea, I have a blank wall ready to do a photo wall and i just cant seem to get my layout right or photograph choices selected. I really love the idea of shelves. Swopping out so you don’t get bored or damaging the wall when you feel like a change. BRILLIANT IDEA!!!!
