what to do with a huge empty wall

I have this huge wall in my living room that I've been staring at off and on for the last year, trying to figure out what to put there to fill it in.

I found this old chippy iron piece at a flea market recently - it's 80 inches long!

some of my photos

The 11x14 frames are all different, from Goodwill for $4 each. I spray painted them white, and added photos I've take myself - three tree shots and two beach shots.

Next up, I'm planning to paint this wall with pale turquoise...

Love that metal piece! So unique and cool. Love that weathered look it's got goin' on! I am working on filling a bare wall in my kitchen. I'll post it on my blog when I get it done. Have a great day!

I too have a huge long wall in my living room. For Christmas I made silhouettes of my five kids for the husband. They are all in thrifted frames I spray painted black and I love them. Even the baby likes to look at them!

Yes! Paint that wall turquoise! It will be beautiful! (Oh, take pictures when you do.)
