It’s finally time to share the full Exterior Gallery Wall! I am so excited to show you how it all came together.
Over the past 2 months, I have shared the five DIY projects that make up the majority of this Rustic Gallery Wall, but if you missed any of them, have no fear, there are links below.
It all started with this idea to carve our initials into a log from a fallen tree. I have always loved the sentiment behind the idea of carving your initials in a tree, but I hate the damage it can do to a living tree.
Once I did it, I wasn’t really sure what to do with this random log. Then an idea sprang to mind! A portion of our backyard is framed by the wall of our workshop, but until this moment it had never occurred to me that it was essentially a blank canvas.
Next came this set of Shadow Boxes. One as a Succulent Planter,
and one as a Bird Feeder. You can see by the bird seed scattered everywhere that the birds really do enjoy this feeder. I love it because I truly don’t think the squirrels can get to it!
The centerpiece of the gallery wall came together in the form of this hand-painted pallet wood sign.
And this beer bottle flower vase adds the ability to change the color scheme easily.
I filled in with assorted reclaimed metal in the form of these old stepping stones,
An old rusty gear,
this piece from a wrought iron fence,
and a rusty candle holder. (I haven’t decided if I think it would be safe to actually put a candle in it.)
I love the rustic and natural atmosphere this gallery wall has created.
It is absolutely perfect for our setting nestled in the woods.
