Master Bedroom Update: Gallery Wall Changes

HAPPY HALLOWEEN peeps!!!
 
Thanks for all the sweet comments/likes on my bed making tips yesterday! I'm back in the master today to show you guys all the updates to the gallery wall.
 
If you don't recall what it used to look like, here's a little reminder.
 
 
Well, now it looks like this.
 
 
I edited out a few pieces, reframed my naked lady into a frame that actually fit her, added a few new pieces and rehung everything in somewhat new positions. I think it looks so much better now.
 
 
I added a mirror above our chest of drawers. It may be overkill with our full-length mirror just in the opposite corner, but it was just collecting dust in the corner behind said full-length mirror, so I have it a couple coats of gold spray paint and reunited it with the family it never had.
 
 
I couldn't redo the gallery wall and not spruce up the top of the chest. The cupcake stand is working well at holding my baubles and bracelets but its haphazardness wasn't good for my chi. I moved it to rest on the ceramic stool so that it was still within reach and fully accessible, but I wasn't staring at it while trying to decide on my accessories for the day. Out of site = improvement of my chi.
 
The humongous brass lamp was moved to the living room, where its scale is much more fitting, and was replaced by one of the lamps below.
 
 
The size and scale was so much better, but the navy blue didn't quite create the look that I was going for. I gave it a few coats of Rustoleum's Universal spray paint in satin white and replaced the shade with this black linen one from the Threshold line at Target. You may remember seeing it here.
 
 
Everything is still there and functioning so much better in this arrangement. All of my favorite pieces are out in the open instead of inside my wood and snakeskin Nate Berkus box. I still keep my precious pieces in there, but they are out of the way of my everyday pieces.
 
 
The tray that my watches are on used to say Happy Holidays, but it was nothing some gold spray paint couldn't fix. The little brass dish is holding a couple pairs of my favorite earrings (even though I wear the same pair everyday), but it's main use is holding my wedding rings when I take them off.
 
 
And of course, styling is never done without flowers and a candle.
 
 
I'm so happy with the progress in here. I can, almost, call things done. I've got a few more tweaks to tackle and then we'll be ready for the final reveal.
 
So are you guys gearing up for the trick-o-treaters? It's raining in our parts and isn't looking of letting up, so we may be tricked into treating indoors this year. Boo.

  1. Love it! I was just married in Sept and kept one of the bridesmaids bouquets to display on my nightstand (silk flowers of course). Love the jewelry display; right now my jewelry I scattered on my side of the dresser and in my husbands watch box. I'll be definitely be using some of your tips especially the bracelet holder. Thanks!
