Boy's Room Gallery Wall

I have been searching for the perfect thing to put on this large wall in my son's bedroom. Every time I found a print I liked it was just too small for this wall. So one day while I was browsing the stocked Image Gallery on Costco Photo Center I began finding A LOT of prints I liked. I decided to search for vintage National Park posters and various interest that my son and our family have.

After ordering the prints (which are WONDERFULLY priced) and buying frames for them I traced them onto simple packing paper and taped them to the wall to get the spacing right. My frames were purchased at the Dollar Tree, Walmart and Michaels. (watch for their sales on frames and save up your coupons)

This was the result:

My son's favorite color seems to be orange and he LOVES foxes. I found this print on Etsy and fell in love with it.

Camden sees a puppy and goes berserk  Loves them. We are Baltimore Orioles fans so of course this gallery wall had to represent and the orange works:) The planet poster came with a puzzle the family acquired at Christmas.

The centerpiece of the wall is the Parcheesi game I played as a kid. We have since purchased a newer one that we play and I wanted to preserve my old one. This was the perfect opportunity and it adds some whimsy to the wall. 

I am THRILLED with the result. Every time I walk into the room it makes me smile.
