the living room and gallery wall

I am always thinking about potential projects for our home. Mark is always thinking about the end dates for those projects. We have lived in this home for ten years and he is still wondering if/when there will ever be an end to any of it. 
In my mind, a home is ever-evolving. So no end date.
In Mark's mind, that is a little slice of insanity.
My most recent project was to hang this gallery wall in our living room. I just used frames we already had and spray painted a few gold and a few black. I spent the better part of a Saturday laying it all out on the floor and then hanging them up with the help of my laser tool.
Mark came home and said, "This is the best our living room has looked in ten years!"
I am glad he likes it. And no doubt, he thinks this is the end. I do think it will stay for awhile, but I have plans to add more photos up to the ceiling and down to the floor, and probably change out the pictures every so often.
The opposite wall is flanked with three large mirrors. 
At some point, I will get tired of this wall and want to completely change it. Probably take it all down and repaint, etc. In fact, I am planning on it. The only constant is change. 
Just a few shots of our planked entry walls and new light from Lucent Light shop on Etsy.  
(Both of which Mark loves, thank you very much.)
Frames: Target, Ikea and West Elm.
Accessories: Target and Home Goods.
Pink chair found on Craigslist in its original fabric.
Paint is Benjamin Moore Gray Owl. (Looks more blue here than it really is).
