 So a few days ago I made a gallery wall around the tv in the kids' playroom. 
Here's how this end of the room looked before:

And then after I hung a bunch of framed art around the tv. 

It's mostly drawings and stuff done by my oldest child. Since the framed items are so colorful I wanted the frames themselves to be more simple. So I painted the two wooden ones white so that I would have a grouping of black and white frames that would tie in with the black and white rug. 

Since it was for a children's room and I wanted it to look relaxed and fun, I hung the frames really casually and didn't worry about perfect spacing or a perfect layout. 

I also threw in a couple unframed pieces to add to the casual look.

I think my favorite thing I hung up here was this sweet little message that got scribbled out on a scrap of paper quite a while ago and that I've been saving ever since:

Since this wall is really visible from the front door I was anxious to get it looking more put together. 
So I'm super happy to have this cute grouping around the tv improving the view!

And now please, for the love of all that is pretty, go and enter the giveaway!!  HERE



  1. So cute. The 'together' stick figures is my favorite one. :) Love it!!

  2. Wonderful way to display the kid's art! Love the idea of simple frames! I feel very a plain frame lets the feature it is framing stand out!
    I bet the kids love it also!!!!

  3. Awww love that you framed their art! So special!

  4. The kiddie art is SO good. I cant wait til Charlie starts making art :)

  5. I love the kids art work framed on the wall, I have lots of my boys art work that I would love to frame and put up, but since they are now 19 and 21 I am afraid they would be mortified!
