It's been a fun process finishing our gallery wall in our 1920's apartment in San Francisco.
It is a difficult wall in our dining room as it has a bump out in the middle. So, I decided to treat it as two walls.
- Have a unique and vintage 1920's feel
- Use what I already have...add a couple things
- Mix old and new
- Make it appropriate for a dining room and dining at night
So here we go...
The antique mirror from my childhood home was relocated to the opposite wall.
I started with the plan below but deviated from it…still, it gave me my initial direction (so, I recommend doing a drawing to scale).
All the sconces were from flea markets.
I put flameless Pottery Barn candles on the top sconces. They are on a timer and turn on at dusk for four hours.
There is a nice glow at night for dinner parties...I can also use this Chinese altar table for serving.
It's created a homey, dining room for us.
Cindy and I have ideas brewing for other Project Designs, with different groups in the future. Please let us know if there are any small scale projects that you'd like to see/have help with.
