Rustic DIY Wedding Invite Display & Hallway Gallery Wall {Sources}

July 24, 2014

Hi friends!!
Not to long ago I shared our hallway gallery wall with you.
If you missed that post you can catch up here.
Since then many of you have emailed me asking where I purchased the frames and letters for the roman numerals so today I thought I would share the details and sources for you!!
Here is a photo of the completed gallery wall.

I still don't get tired of looking at this wall!!
Pretty much everything you see on this wall I already had on hand....
I have always had an obsession with picture frames and have collected them since I was in high school and as you can tell from all the framed photos all over our home, I love the idea of framing family photos, kids art work and often sentimental items, like the little note I wrote to myself that is framed in the upper right hand corner of this gallery wall....
I also have recently started collecting letters and typography of all kinds.... I love words and love them all over my home, especially those that carry meaning to our family....
One item on this wall that I frequently get asked questions about is the rustic frame right over the thermostat with our wedding invite.... Interestingly enough, that was actually a DIY that I never thought would get so much attention.... guess I read that one wrong!!
Here is a photo of the frame I found at Target (I purchased the distressed wood color) not to long ago....
 I loved the little key whole and although I didn't have a specific need for it at the time I knew that one day it would find a home.
When I was putting this gallery wall together I knew I wanted our wedding invite on it and I also knew I didn't just want to pop it in a frame.... I wanted it to be displayed with a subtle uniqueness.... Then I remembered I had this cute little frame from Target and I got right to work!!
All I did was paint over the frame with some Anne Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White , distressed it with sandpaper, gave it a nice coat of Anne Sloan clear wax and then carefully removed the glass and simply hot glued a mini clothes pin to the middle and Whaaalaaa!!

A unique rustic little frame to display our wedding invite!!
And the best thing about it is if some day I get tired of looking at it (most likely not!!) I can switch it out anytime and the frame stays on the wall!!
A super quick and easy photo display solution!!
Here are the sources for the other items featured in this gallery wall.
