Remember this?
I went a little bold for a change.

I wanted an impact wall in my second entry area and wanted to go
a little vintage industrial.  When I posted about this in June, I said
I kind of liked it but wasn't sure if I loved it.
I asked you for feedback and I got some great feedback 
and suggestions from you.  
I now know that I didn't love it.  
It looked like I slapped those on a wall and called it a day.
Maybe I did.

So, I reworked it a bit.
Some of you suggested I frame it in or paint the background a different color.
It needed some kind of perimeter to define it and finish it out.  
I have a piece of old moulding that has traveled around my house
and currently didn't have a home.  
So, I added it here to define and contain my collection of Gs and 3s.

I also add some smaller ones to fill in some of the big blank spaces.

There is still room to add more if I find just the right ones
but for now it looks more finished.

I like this a lot better.  

This is my favorite one.  It's an old thin metal stencil.
What do you think now?
You were all so kind last time when it really didn't look good.
By the way, they are all hanging straight.  
For some reason, some of them look a little crooked
in the picture but I assure you they are perfectly straight
in real life or it would drive me insane.


  1. I must have missed the first post about this. I do agree, the molding on the bottom really grounds the arrangement and makes it work! Nice wall art!

  2. LOVE the addition of the molding!!

  3. A fun wall and the molding adds to the finished look. Great wall collage. Hugs, Marty

  4. I think that is an incredible and unique collection and that it looks great. Love the old moulding there too.

  5. I like it. But then again, I liked it before too. Good Gs & 3s finds.

  6. You can't go wrong either way, but I do like how the molding grounds it all. I go through this tweaking process all the time. It's part of the fun!

  7. Wow! That looks great! I love how that awesome piece of trim just finishes it all out!

  8. The molding really does make it look more finished, but I liked it before, too. I think that whole dispaly would be a fun thing to see as your walk in the door.

    I think every area of my house is a work in progress, so I like tweaking things. My husband will ask if I'm playing with my toys again.

  9. I totally agree with you! It did look a little unfinished before but that molding grounds it. I love the vintage industrial.

  10. Hi Gina, I have nominated you for the "Versatile Blogger" Award - please pop over to my blog for the info! Love your blog!

  11. I love how you used the piece of moulding to add some structure to the arrangement. It looks fantastic!

  12. Wow! What a difference a chippy old molding can do:) LOVE it!

  13. The molding brings it all together and it seems more cohesive now. Love that metal 3. I think it's a great collection.

  14. Love it! The vintage metal stencil is my fave too! :)

  15. I think it looks very cool! So industrial chic!
    The stencil is one of my favorites too :)

  16. I think the composition is great. Very bold and graphic. I kinda wanna see a bold background color with it. But the more subtle works too.

  17. Beautiful wall! I like the board definition as well. It stops your eye somewhere. And yeah... that stencil is decadent!


  18. Very cool wall, the vintage shelf just pulls it all together! Great job!
