going industrial...a little bit

We have a "2nd entry" area that baffles me.  
It's between the foyer or main entry area and the main living area. 
It serves no purpose really except that it creates a very small and short hallway 
with a huge blank wall.   There isn't enough room to put a piece of furniture there
and Mandi doesn't live close enough to build in a bookcase with some rockin' moulding for me.

I'm tired of looking at the blank wall so I decided to do something about it.
I'm going a little bold for a change; a little bit industrial.
I hung my collection of "3"s and "G"s, or at least the start of the collection.
I hope to fill it in a little more with some smaller ones.

It's a little crazy isn't it?  I like it but do I love it?
I don't know yet.
By the way, they are all hung very straight.  
You just can't tell it in the pictures :)  

Honest feedback anyone?


  1. It wasn't perfect until you added the bench and pillow. So pulled together.

  2. I like it. I'm not bold enough to do that in my house, but it totally looks like something you'd see in a magazine -- like Martha Stewart or Pottery Barn. I think it's definitely "You" and I say you should keep it! I wish I could make bolder decorating decisions!!

  3. It's perfect! Love the hinged sign!

  4. I am not a professional decorator--but just a thought--what if you put a large frame around the art work--you could make to size with moulding--and paint behind the 3's and G's with a coordinating color to set it all off. I do like those 3's especially...

  5. Like it. A painted background color block is a fantastic idea. I have done this and it pulls it all together exceptionally well. Bench is great....pillow should go...not functuioning ; too large. Impact should be on the wall and not on too many little things. Tweak it and it will be a fantastic graphic wall piece.

  6. LOVE it!! I think it looks so cool! I like that it's a bit modern but also vintage. Great job!

  7. I think it is stinkin-G adorable! Wonderin-G where you G-ot them all!
    Keep collectin-G


  8. I LOVE IT. So awesome! It's a great idea! Love love!

    p.s. send me on out there for your bookcases any time. . . :)

  9. I love it! Geez, I wish I had more 3s to copy the look! Hint, hint!! :D

  10. I LOVE it all! You created a great look, and it's so Gina!

  11. I'm really liking the industrial look these days. Our front stair case was turned around so that our house could be made into apartments and I hate our front entry! It's too small to do anything in there but hang a pictures and throw a pillow or two. I would love the "front hall" look!
    Have a great week,

  12. Wow...this is AWESOME! It looks like a page from a magazine. You know that I love red, so it really speaks to me. Wonderful!

  13. I think it's a great idea! It the perfect spot to hang your letters and number 3's. I just wish I had that many :)

  14. Very unique, very cool. The bench and pillow are great with it all!
