Our bedroom is one of the least-featured rooms on my blog, mostly because 1) It's usually quite messy and 2) Some of the stuff in there is not so aesthetically pleasing or easy to photograph--like our TV & laundry hamper. You still won't be seeing all of it today for those reasons, but one region of the bedroom recently got a little facelift that I do want to share!
The last time we peeked into the land of sleep and laundry piles was a whole year ago when I arranged some art above our bed. This time another spot received some art-love: this semi-awkward corner of dead space created by the near intersection of our dresser and window.
Don't ask me why I decided to hang these two pieces of art at different heights like that...I don't know. But I do know that things were lookin' sparse and half-arsed. Not a fan.
Being a gallery wall addict and a Goodwill frequenter, I knew the answer was to hang some other art with these two lonely pieces. Boom, looking good!
Let's zoom in a little.
On the left wall, we have one of the existing pieces (an engagement picture in a floating frame), plus a $0.99 floral piece from Goodwill, a photo I cut from my Mizzou alumni calendar (the "Tiger" sign is from an old hotel in my college town) and popped into a frame I already had, and some DIY state string art. I actually got the oval plaque at a thrift for $2, and the gold thread and nails were $0.99 apiece, putting the project at just $4 total!
On the other wall, we have the framed Montana print that was already there along with a new-to-me photo I scooped up from Goodwill for $5.99. The frame isn't exactly my jam, so down the line I will probably replace it (maybe with this one from Target?) or maybe even spray paint the existing gold one an oil-rubbed bronze?
Here's a close-up of the photo. I just love the lighting. It ties in well with the engagement photo on the opposite wall.
Now I really enjoy staring into this corner of our bedroom! I think it'd be even cuter with a chair popped under there, but my storage ottoman (which is full of blankets) looks good for now.
I must admit that this corner wasn't really on my to-do list or at the top of my mind when I bought the photo and floral art from Goodwill--so I'm happy that all the art ties in together. Any empty or odd spaces you've been tackling, intentionally or not?
