The Great X Wall Project


So it’s finally done! THE wall project I’ve been working on for a few weeks. If you follow me on Facebook then you’ve seen me post some of the updated pictures. I shared a funny story on my personal page about when my oldest son asked me if I was building a fence so the cows wouldn’t get out…lol!


Ha!! I can see that, but not exactly, my dear:0)


It’s just that I ‘m obsessed with the x.

So I decided to incorporate that x detail in my own home. I knew our big blank entry wall would be a great place to try it! I must say I love how it turned out!!!

Here is the area before:



I’m getting closer and closer to finally finishing up this room! Next thing I want to do is to add a gallery wall:0)

I‘ve always loved this wall from Pottery Barn

  23. Do you think you can do this if you have 8 foot ceilings? or will it break the wall up too mcu?
