Beachy Gallery Wall

Our master bedroom has a long wall that was just crying out for a gallery wall. I wanted a beach theme to go with the colors and bedding that we had, and I really wanted to incorporate a framed piece like this one.

I started with a bunch of frames that I used in our old house but didn't have a place for in our new home. I used fabric left-over from our Command Central boards to cover the picture mats the same way I did for the living room prints.
For the art I made my own beach-themed subway art. Nothing fancy, just beach words in black ink in a few different fonts.

I printed several shell specimen pictures from The Graphics Fairy.  

After putting more fabric in the frames, I used my hot glue gun to attach a large shell and starfish right to the glass of two of the frames. I also framed an old greeting card my Grandmother gave me when I was a little girl. I loved the picture and kept it all these years. 

So a few nails and zero money later, our beachy picture gallery is done, and I've got one more thing crossed off the to-do list.
