I am so excited to share with you my Coastal Farmhouse Living room!
Especially one new thing in particular!
I fell in love with the idea of a seascape gallery wall some time ago when I saw Layla from The Lettered Cottage share hers on Instagram. Ever since then I have been on the hunt for any coastal artwork every time I went out shopping at thrift stores or antique stores.
Most of the time I came up empty handed. Pictures of loons in the lake I found by the dozens, but beautiful coastal seascapes were nowhere to be found. I was starting to believe that seascape prints just didn’t exist in Minnesota. Maybe because it’s the Land of 10,000 lakes and not a coastal state. Plus most of the decor around here is northern log cabin with red, green and black plaid and pine trees.
I didn’t give up searching through all the random picture bins at the thrift stores and then one day it payed off and I found this absolutely huge seascape!
This thing is nearly as long as I am tall! Finding a place for it was a little tough because it is so wide! So above the couch it went layered over my basket lid accent wall.
I also did something that I never like to do, and I think a first since we moved into this house! I nailed some holes in my wall!! Believe me I tried to think of some other idea of how to hang this coastal art work up but nothing was working. I had run out of my normal picture hanging hardware, so I had to settle for some nails and a hammer. It was a struggle for me as I don’t like to nail holes in my wall. Why don’t I like to put nail holes in my wall, not sure, it’s just one of my quirks.
Now my living room is looking a little more like a coastal farmhouse!
My DIY beach hut pillow fits right in with my new living room art work. They are exactly the little huts that you would find on the coast like the one pictured, Full of vibrant colors and character.
I hope this is the first of many Coastal Seascape Art prints that I find!
