What I Want: Gallery Wall Edition

I've seen so many inspiring gallery walls and I want one bad! I've got the feva! And it all started with winning an amazing blog giveaway for a gallery wrapped canvas over at Centsational Girl. Huge thanks to Color Incorporated for hosting the giveaway and being so easy to work with!

We haven't hung any art above our bed yet and the blank wall was starting to bug me.

See the big empty wall? Ignore the clutter...
When I won I thought hell yeah! I'll get an awesome canvas print out of one of our favorite photos from Italy! I ordered it and it arrived in no time!

Ahh how we love you Cinque Terre!
P.S. That bridge you see leads to the statue where Dave proposed! :)

Then I realized that the print out was only 12 x 16 so it looked silly on that big wall. Aha! Gallery wall time!
I pulled out a bunch of the prints we picked up from our trip to Italy (2 years ago and still haven't framed) and decided it's time to take charge admire the prints and think about how great they'll look above the bed.

2 small prints from our day in Paris

Fun vintage travel poster from Paris

Also from Paris

With our one year anniversary this Sunday, I'm thinking I need the hubbs to purchase a few Vintage Travel Posters from Italy to round out the group. Bonus: traditional first year anniversary gifts are paper!
High Heeled Foot In the Door blogged about a great site offering cheap prints!
Here are the ones I have my eye on:

And I also want a pretty map of Italy to frame! (Haven't found one yet)

I plan to get frames for them this weekend if I can find some deals! I also like the idea of hanging trinkets up in between photos... Here's some inspirational pictures I found in blog land!

I saw someone get wraping paper of the map they wanted then glue and distress with wood stain on a piece of foam board! DO IT!
