New Gallery Wall in the Breakfast Room

9.11.2017

Last week when I shared the fall mantel I mentioned that while decorating for fall a few things have moved around. I loved my breakfast room wall when I had the vintage bread boards hanging on the wall, but after having the new crown molding added to the wall during the kitchen remodel it wasn't quite large enough anymore for my over sized boards. In the meantime I hung a painting and sconces and then switched the painting for another one, but I still wasn't feeling it. Then I had an epiphany and realized my copper molds collection might just work. So today I'm sharing my new gallery wall in the breakfast room with a bit of fall added, too.


I have collected these old copper molds the last few years and had a few more that I let go.

I placed all the molds on the table to figure out the arrangement and then grabbed my hammer and just started adding nails and hanging them up. It only took me about twenty minutes.

I decided to add a fall vignette on the table. You know I had to add this so it wouldn't just be a boring gallery wall. :)

I clipped a couple maple tree branches which haven't started changing color yet, but will soon and tucked them in one of my demijohns.

We will pretend I have some kind of wonderful apple dessert baking as I have these plates and forks ready for it to be served.

I have had those plates for years and they have even hung on a wall before.



If you have a collection of molds or something else that can be hung on the wall try it out. 
I love how they look all grouped together and collections make a bigger impact together.


We are watching the weather and are ready and praying we don't lose power or have trees come down on our house. Around two this afternoon is when we could see the strong wind gusts start.
If we lose power I have the Wow party ready to go tomorrow night and then I'll be back whenever.
Take care.

  1. Did you stage the vignette just for blogging purposes, or do you leave the plates, etc. out? Irma is supposed to hit here tonight I believe - same thing, strong winds and possibility of outages. I don't think they are expecting widespread outages here and we do have a generator. First time I remember roads into areas of the Smokies being closed due to effects from a hurricane!!

    1. Tina, most bloggers stage for photo shoots. Yes, I created this fall vignette for the shoot and yes, it's still there.

    3. I just wondered. I know some peeps leave their tables set (I am not one of those) and just wondered about the plates, etc. LOL good thing I'm not a blogger. I'm not sure I really know what a soiree is! But I do like to look at blogs and appreciate the efforts.

  2. Very pretty, Kim. You can not go wrong with your copper collection. I love the huge bottle on the table and plan to shop for one or three of those myself. Prayers for you and everyone else in the storm path.

  5. I have some inexpensive copper moods from the 50's that were my mom's. They're so shiny, and I would love to age them. Do you have any suggestions?

  6. Curious how you frequently change out wall decor....what do you use to hang things so as not to have extra holes that aren't used?

    1. Linda, the holes are so tiny and I just patch and paint them in a matter of minutes.

  7. Kim,
    Your gallery wall adds a touch of fall to your breakfast area. For some reason, copper makes me think Fall. I like how the lantern light fixture in its rubbed gold finish goes very well with the copper.

  8. Very pretty for fall. I do not collect copper but I do appreciate others. I am loving your light fixture. 😊 My brother lives in ATL area. I asked him if he was prepared!

  11. Kim, I LOVE the copper molds as a gallery wall! It looks great! I pray Irma doesn't hit you hard. All my relatives made out OK, just debris and loss of power but no major damage, thank God! Stay safe!

  14. Looks good, Kim. Always fun to play around with our things and change it up.

  15. It looks great Kim! It is always nice to change things up a little.

  16. You nailed it Kim with the copper molds...no pun intended! They really add such a warm, French touch to your kitchen for the Fall. For some reason, when I see these copper molds it always reminds me of Julia Childs famous kitchen.

  17. I'm a big fan of plates on the wall but never considered copper molds. So pretty! I especially love your fall vignette. It looks like it just landed there naturally!

  18. It looks wonderful! Do you get much fall color there? I'm in a zone 9a and we don't see a lot of color here, but what we do get comes the last week of November through Janaury, which is a bit too late for much fall decorating (except for the Thanksgiving table!) I grew up in a zone 8 and my parents (who grew up in a cold winter area) chose a maple tree for our front yard. It never changed color as I'm sure they had expected it would; the leaves would just turn brown in December and fall then. We learned about fall colors in school but it always seemed so foreign. I've only spent a few short years living in colder climates in fall in my life, and the changing of the leaves was always a magical experience for me.

    1. Yes, we do get fall color here. The maples are already turning in some places.

  19. Simple and pretty. If somebody doesn't want to put nails in the wall, sometimes I use clear head push pins. They work well and make smaller holes.

  20. I like your old copper molds and I think they look perfect on this wall. They also add a very fall-like colour to the room.
