Kids' Room Gallery Wall

My younger son's room is starting to come together.
Finishing this kids' room gallery wall gave the space lots of visual awesomeness!
I've also got a $250 Minted giveaway below!

I love a good gallery wall...but doing one to a nine-year-old's specifications can be a challenge. I'm happy to say that we crossed off all of his wants and put together a fun little wall o' memories and cool-dude artwork. Check it out below, along with a BIG giveaway from MINTED! 


This little corner of the room has really come together. The issues I wanted to address here were the weird "stuff" that wall came with: 1) Paneling and 2) Not one but TWO outlet boxes in the middle of the wall. Middle of the wall, y'all. I would have drywalled over them, but that brings us back to point #1...paneling. Having a gallery wall meant that those two items in point #2 could at least not stick out like the sore thumbs they had become. On a lighter note, a middle-of-the-wall outlet is great for plugging in an iPod in bed at night when *someone* wants to fall asleep to his jam.

Since we just moved in here in March, we were blank slating this one.

I thought it would be fun to buy unfinished frames for the art and favorite photos he chose for this space. That way I could match them to the other painted pieces in the room.
 

My son selected the above prints for his gallery wall, along with some fun photos of his own.
We found them in the Photography Art category on the MINTED site.

The photos are 4x6, anchored by the 8x10 photography artwork from MINTED. 

I think the vintage VW bus pic is my favorite. 

I also grabbed the "HEY, HANDSOME" Foil-Pressed Artwork HERE at MINTED.

Sadly, my guys are both a bit past the cute artwork stage...but I LOVE all of the children's pieces over on the MINTED site. 
They even have custom children's artwork as well. 

I'm really happy with how well it came together!

MINTED is giving one of my readers $250 to shop their selections (which includes artwork, draperies, pillows, linens, and more).
