Yesterday I showed you my board & batten backpack wall.  After it was complete the wall above it was begging for a gallery wall.  Since this wall is rarely seen by anyone but our family I decided to make it super personalized and fun – depicting our family being fun and sentimental quotes and mantras.  Most of the pieces are handmade and embodies our family.

The string art all the way to the left says “Home Sweet Home†and the tutorial can be found here.  I really do feel like my home is the sweetest place on earth.  While I crave a vacation every now and then there is no place like walking through the door of my home.

Next to that was a pallet art silhouette I made of our family back when my kids were 5 and 2.  It was made out of old fence boards and cost me nothing.

The glittered wood slab with our family name and anniversary year was made back in November.

The large chalkboard arrow came from a vendor at the Country Living Fair but you can purchase it online from Painted Fox Treasures.

The two frames are from Cut it Out one is the 8†x 10†Balboa frame and above that is a 11†x 14†Parker frame.  The top one is our family pictures that we got taken this year from Julie Larame Photography.  She captured the perfect hopping picture of us.  I love how this picture freezes a bit of our personality.

The bottom is a print from Jamin & Ashley’s (The Handmade Home) book “Art for the Eclectic Homeâ€. I also handmade each of the arrows from scrap wood (tutorial coming soon!).

*The three books in this series from Jamin & Ashley are all art prints from artists that can be pulled out of the book and hung right on your wall.  I highly recommend them!  They are great for a gallery wall.

Lastly the “Be Grateful†sign was one I made from a pre-fabbed mini pallet from Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.  Paired with a little Krylon Glitterblast in Silver Flash and it is beautiful and glittery.

We get to look at it everyday as we come and go.  Every time I enter my mudroom it makes me smile for many reasons.  It is organized, functional and represents our family so well.  Who said a mudroom had to be just organized and functional?

  1. I love how this looks! I’ve actually been thinking of building something similar in the small hallway between my boys’ rooms. This seems about the same size, so now I’m definitely inspired to give it a shot!

  2. This is great! We desperately need a better place for the kids to “leave” their shoes 🙂
