Mission Gallery Wall Complete!

A  few years ago, I had created a gallery wall in my family room that you can see here and here. I have always enjoyed it, but there were two empty spaces that I had trouble filling. I didn't know whether to add more pictures or did it need something else? I wasn't sure what I wanted to do so I just ignored it!

Every time I looked at it, which was daily, I could hear the wall whisper, "Psst! Hey...YOU! Notice anything wrong with me? I'm not fully dressed!"

I even ignored the wall talking to me!

I'm pathetic!

For 2 years it has had two spots missing teeth.

Well two weeks ago, I remembered a star burst mirror I had bought at Target that originally had a dark brown finish that I transformed to an antique gold with a little Rub N Buff. I ran upstairs grabbed it and tried it out on the gallery wall. It fit perfectly and I liked it! For the other empty spot, I borrowed our family initial that was in the kitchen and voila! In less then 10 minutes I had finally finished the gallery wall! It only took me two years! I told you I was pathetic!

Here she is!!!

I also replaced the giant hurricane candle holders on either side with these lamps. I like it so much better!

The lamps add much needed light to this end of the room and it feels a little cozier when they are on.

It even forced me to remove the plaid wool blankets and plaid pillows I had in the basket under the table. Bring on Spring!

It feels good to check something off my list!

What have you been procrastinating with?
