Statement Hanging Art

Gallery walls aren’t the only way to fill up a big, blank space! Today I’m sharing the new large-scale artwork we picked out for our living room and how I hung it from the ceiling for an even bigger statement. This post is brought to you by our friends at Minted!

In keeping with our signature farmhouse style, I picked out a black and white bull with a gorgeous horn silhouette. This guy is HUGE… I’m talking 40″ x 54″ huge. It took a few days to get used to a giant bull sitting with us in the living room, but he’s part of the family now, and we lovingly named him Beau. The first thing you see when you walk through our dining room into the living room is Beau the bull, and I love the big statement he makes in here. But once sweet Beau arrived on our doorstep, I had to figure out how I was going to hang him on the wall with about 2 inches of trim sticking out from the board and batten we added to our walls… [Continue reading…]
