The long stretch of wall to the right of the storage cabinets was crying out for a big statement piece of art and the small bit of wall to the left of the window also needed something. I think every room needs a mirror - it adds light and a different dimension to the space. So I set off to IKEA with my wall dimensions in hand to figure out my options.
I found this little oval mirror for about $15 and a pack of bright red clothespins.
And I found this giant 55" tall canvas on sale in the art section.
