gallery wall ~ finished!

Here is my finished gallery wall! I used mostly all photos from Goodwill. I bought the R at Michaels and painted some of the frames with Martha Stewart chalkboard paint. I also picked up the white antler from Urban Outfitters.

What do you think? Would you ever do a gallery wall?

bookshelf revamp

 I just moved out of my parents house into a new apartment in Chicago and have had the best time finding furniture for my new room and revamping it. I managed to score this sweet bookshelf for $100 from an estate sale last weekend. It really is such a nice piece, however the back of it was a little warped and cracked and I wanted to do something to fix it and make it look nicer.

I bought this wallpaper from Lowes for around $34.

Then I took out the shelves so that it would be easier to put the wallpaper on. (Ignore my lovely garage)

Thankfully my mom is a master wallpaper-er. She did a great job!

Andddd the finished bookshelf in my new room….

I love it! I think it looks awesome and it makes the bookshelf look 100% better. It took under an hour to finish this and was so simple to execute. It was nice to do such a simple project to make a huge difference.
