let's talk gallery walls

I'm a sucker for the Pottery Barn layouts...

News Flash: I like things done quickly and efficiently. Especially when it comes to projects and decorating. Have an idea? Execute immediately before you get distracted.

And since I'm always in this unnecessary hurry, hanging any sort of collection on the wall is a tough one for me. I knock out a few nail holes, hang a few things up, step back and shake my head "nope". Then I hammer a few more holes and do it all over again. The end result is much faster that way. Before long, I'll have the wall I want...  plus about 20 ugly nail holes. Oops. 
And don't even get me started about wall anchors. Ha.

J.B. is always getting on to me about my 99 billion nail holes and the fact that a light breeze would bring most anything I've hung up crashing down. Whatevs. He doesn't know me. 
Today I worked on hanging some wall art in Jake's new room. And maybe it was the romance lingering from our five year anniversary last week. Maybe it was just the fact that I'm in no major rush to finish this room. But {gasp} I took my time. I thought of my dear man and decided not to pound a thousand million holes in the wall. That's right, I patterned out the large pieces of a gallery wall! Finally taking the oh so sane advice of these folks, I traced out all of my large pieces onto craft paper and taped up. I was able to easily arrange and rearrange everything without smashing up my sheet rock. The hubby is going to be so proud.

Awkward photo for proof of course:

Look at me, being all responsible!
Maybe tomorrow I'll put some of those beloved nail holes in the wall!
