I love gallery walls. They infuse a room with age, character, interest, story.
My latest project is a gallery stair wall that isn’t quite finished, but here’s a sneak peek.
I like adding in some bits of homemade interest to the gallery, so when I saw Addicted2Decorating’s Chrysanthemum Mirror, I had to try it for my wall.
She may call it a Chrysanthemum mirror (can’t argue with that), but I call it a Spoonflower.
Because it’s made of 174 plastic spoons. ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY FOUR. So if that’s not a Spoonflower, I don’t know what is. You can follow the tutorial here. I followed it exactly.
I’m still debating whether or not to add the mirror in the middle or leave it yellow against the gray wall. I have the mirror, just really can’t decide.
It’s a simple project (albeit time consuming) and I love the way it draws your eye up the staircase to the top of the gallery.
The total cost was about $12 – sample can of yellow paint and $6 worth of plastic spoons.
Side note: there is an actual company named Spoonflower in Durham, NC, that prints custom fabric based on your own designs. Check it out at www.spoonflower.com. There is no minimum order quantity and the prices are reasonable. Ingenious concept.
