The big blank wall

Do you hate or love a big blank wall?  I was told by hubby and (interior decorator daughter) that something needed to be done.  They are both out of town this weekend, so here goes.

First ~ the wall.  Raining in Texas this morning YAY.  Sorry pictures so dark.

Then add chairs ~ two dining room chairs and pillows.

Add a zinc table and impromtu bar area.

Love my thrifty find of the week, the mirrored cake/anything plateau with the black and gold harlequin pattern.  Hoblobby $50.00 for 90 percent off, $5.00 gotta holla. 

Finish off with round, tiled mirrors.  IKEA clearance.  

Great mirrors with a band of mirrored tiles surrounding the edges.

I went with two. Total make-over $24.98.  Yes the mirrors were on sale for $9.99.

Before / After
What do you think?

Hmmm, I think I am going to drape the table.  Maybe next weekend.

Enjoying the rain and cooler temperatures.  Koi pond is full, life is good.
