My Gallery Wall

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Like everything in a home, no project is ever complete. I just wanted to show you where I am in the process of creating my gallery wall. I love gallery walls because they are the easiest and best looking way to display pictures, Knick knacks, and all kinds of decorative items you may pick up along the way. My gallery wall has been a work in progress for about a year so far and I’m really happy with how it’s coming together. I will link all the products I can or at least link similar products.

Downtown Chicago Pictures

My mother actually took these photos years ago on one of her trips there with my sister. I loved the shots so I decided to put them in this simple black frame from Target.

Libra & Cancer Paintings

These are watercolor paintings I did myself actually. I got the idea off of similar pieces from Minted, feel free to buy them here if art isn’t your forte. I ordered the square white frames from Amazon and I love them.

Couple’s Pictures

The idea for this came from Pinterest, of course. It’s a picture of me and my husband our first year and our last year of college with our first college apartment address in the middle. Once I get around to it, I am going to put a copy of that apartment’s key in the center as well. Loved the idea and I can’t wait to see it all come together.

Gold Foil Iowa Map

I ordered this piece from Minted as soon as I found it. I LOVE the gold foil. Minted also has a variety of frames to offer so I just picked up a white one to go with my theme.

Artistic Quote

The small little quote in the blue frame was just a quote I got off of Pinterest paired with a frame I picked up from Target.

Antique Mirrored Arrows

I picked these up recently from Target and I love the three dimensionality it gives to the wall. These are so cute and can be sure all together or separately like I am.

Wedding Quote

This gorgeous piece was actually a wedding gift from my sister. I love it! The poem is one she wrote specifically for us and I think it’s absolutely beautiful! Her creativity never ceases to amaze me.

Family Photo

I love these family photos we took last year with my husband’s family and the blue in their shirts pairs well with the subtle blue theme of the wall.

Gold Hello Sign

I recently picked this up from the Target dollar spot and thought it was a super cute addition. The hello sign can be removed and replaced with a new picture but I like the color of it so I think I’ll keep it for a while.

I hope you enjoyed this little look at my gallery wall and pulled some inspiration to incorporate these pieces in your own home. Let me know down below what your favorite piece was!

Wedding Wednesday : Invitations and Thank You’s

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

Don’t you just love when you schedule a post for a specific day and it never posts! So frustrating! That’s why I’m bringing you another Wedding Wednesday post on a Thursday in honor of these gorgeous beauties right here. I recently received my wedding invitations and thank you’s in the mail and I’m obsessing over them. I used Minted for the invites and honestly can’t say enough good things! This service was so easy to use and so simple to create custom designs. They have such a large assortment of foil pressed stationary right now (which is obviously what I flocked to). This rose gold foil hits me right in the feels! It matches our wedding colors completely and I love water colored look of the gray. These are such high quality and decently priced, all things considering. Minted even threw in complimentary protective slips to make sure my invitations survived all kinds of crazy from the postal service. I’m in love with the way they turned out and I can’t wait for all of our guests to receive them.

Minted is also I really great place to get art or any kind of prints. I ordered a foiled print of my state (so cute) and it adds a great pop to my gallery wall. I highly recommend this company! I haven’t been disappointed yet!
