Our fun Disney art wall

Hello there! I've been working like crazy to finish up the loft space and I'll be sharing the completed room with you next week! I am SO HAPPY with how it's come together. I'm writing you from the room right now and have been in here nearly all day every day (because I love it so much and because I'm trying to finish it up). ;) 

One little space that I finished up (well, started really) was the small Disney wall near the stairs. I knew when I made our Disney pin art months ago that I wanted to hang it in the room:

This little wall near our book nook was the one I planned to put the art on:

I wanted to frame out the pin art somehow before I hung it but ended up just repurposing a small chalkboard we used to have hanging in another part of the loft. I had an idea to use it again so first I hung it:

And then I just nailed the pin art on top. :) I'll show you more of that in a minute. 

Then it was time to add some art. This wall will get a few more frames added to it over time (over time means when I take my next trip to IKEA, ha!) but we got a good start. 

I searched Etsy for Disney art and found a few printables I loved. They were inexpensive and I was able to download them immediately -- so easy! I printed them out at home so it took me mere minutes for each one. I link to each one below the photos if you are interested in the shops.

I loved this bright and colorful rendition of the castle:

This version of Mickey made us smile from ear to ear:

Isn't he the cutest?? 

I needed a landscape print for the final frame so I downloaded this Peter Pan art:

Goodness, I just love them. Each one is so bright and pretty. 

Again, the wall isn't much now, but it makes me so happy when I walk by it. I plan to add at least four more smaller frames next to the pin art:

I think I'm going to add to the bottom as well. It's a small wall but in a space most guests don't see so I may just fill it up so we can enjoy it. We have some fun photos from our trips I'd like to add here as well. (And yes, I still need to patch that small drywall spot.) 

You can see here how I just nailed the pin art to the top of the chalkboard frame. :) That art is seriously one of my favorite pieces I've ever made. I love how the wood and black mimics the look of the giant chalkboard on the other side of the room too. 

Even though it's not complete we love it -- and it's come a long way since I added all the farmhouse door trim earlier this summer: 

I can't believe how much this room has changed in just three months! That's fast for me as some of you know. ;) 

Now it's a bright and fun spot that will be a great addition to this space!:

Love it and love the backdrop of the white planked wall! And even with the cost of the frames so far it's only cost me about $20.

  1. This is a super cute idea...thanks for the links to the printables too! When you did the Mickey head pin art, did you keep the rubber backs from the pins just in case or did you toss them? Thanks!!

  4. We became Disney addicts completely by accident last year (didn't realize how much we would love it). I love this inspiration art! Santa Claus is bringing a Disney cruise in January so I love ideas like this!
