{ Thrifty Cottage Garden Gallery Wall Idea.. }

Hey guys and welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely Monday/ start to the week. I'm so tired I don't even know what is going on with me..So not like me to be tired @ 9pm, usually that's when I get my boost of energy hence the late night posts hahaha! I'm sitting here typing this & literally yawning!! I guess this fresh & springy post is needed  until this crazy Michigan weather clears. Although our  Michigan weather hasn't been great, I have been adding spring all over our little suburban cottage & am taking a trip to +IKEA USA  tomorrow with a girlfriend to get a few cheap spring goods. Last night via my IG account I posted about these cute little $3 wood signs I found stashed in the back of the target by the garden section..I knew exactly what I wanted the one for..It's for this awkward large wall in our upper living room..I finished the little spring gallery wall today & I'm in LOVEEEE! It's neutral, fresh, springy & cottagey , and best of all sports some real & faux greenery mixed in!! 

For $3 I should have bought them both right?! P.S. sorry about the picture I just quickly snapped this  while +Target . Again, if you're interested in these signs they're located by the garden supplies like boots, gloves, rakes etc.. Maybe they'll be moved up to the dollar spots soon ??? ;)


Okay, so these are the 4 real plants/succulents I have in this little gallery table space. I love it for spring & that some are real..I will say I started with 5 & now I'm down to 4 #rip! I've been trying I promise, but I may have over watered them..Hopefully they can hang on!! The unfinished rustic wood tray was a free find & says " Detroit Pistachios" in green writing. The runner is from Target dollar spots.


This simple sign couldn't have been more perfect for this space!! I love the rustic writing, wire & that it fit perfectly on the little wood frames. I needed something to fill the larger green window frame, so I used some +IKEA USA  hanging pots I had from a few years back! The plants in the pots are faux.


Crocks, ladder, wood potting table, plants & sign...All stuff I love & screams cottage! This wall is now bright & fresh, and ready for spring!!  

Side Note: The mason jar lamp was a DIY/ thrifty find. Search under " Popular Posts" for the tutorial.



My succulent babies haha


I hope you guys love this spring /cottage inspired gallery wall. I mean with a few chippy frames, $2 succulents & some junk this little space came together so well.  I know gallery walls are so popular right now, but in all honestly I've never been a huge fan...They can become clustered & random..or maybe it's just not my style..Either way I love this one I basically threw together on the cheap! What do you think of gallery walls?? Which kind to do you have or prefer??

Have a lovely Tuesday & THANK YOU for stopping in, I truly mean it :)!!
