guys, we have a dilemma on our hands that I hope you can help us with (please!).
see that gigantic open wall above? we have NO clue what to do with it.
here's the current setup:
basically, we it's where we keep a bunch of random (and temporary) stuff. some items going to goodwill (that need to be picked over during impending family visits), our high velocity fan (or SUPER AWESOME WIND MACHINE), and Lola's bed. the wall is adjacent to where we keep our entertainment center.
unfortunately, the entertainment center cannot be moved. the living room is laid out REALLY weirdly, so basically, we have to keep everything in front of our fire place like so:
our TV is on the fritz and will be replaced somewhat soon (most likely with a larger version).
the sideboard will eventually be refinished (similar to this).
and the mantle is kind of a random collection of stuff right now.
so tell me: what should I do with that large, empty wall?
the light isn't that great in there (zero overhead lights) and we're stuck with that obnoxious taupe.
in an ideal world, I would paint all the walls crisp white and do maybe dark, rough wood floating shelves where I could swap out artwork/photos (of which we have an overabundance). in the meantime, I'm at a loss. maybe a gallery wall? (SNORE.)
so any ideas would be most welcome!
