See what I mean?
I mean, my free artwork is awesome, but then there's the whole completely long blank wall thing going on around it, with no floor space for a table or anything. And our apartment is so small that that one blank wall is a big chunk of real estate. Here's what I'm thinking to pretty up a dead space. I have several options:
Cabbages and Roses fabric covered wall
Yep, you can put fabric right on your walls and peel it right off when you need to with this method. Great for rentals!
Pros: Looks fab, Cabbages and Roses now sells to the US, would add lots of soft personality to a taupe-painted rental
Cons: That's a long hallway. It might be a bit pricey to cover the whole thing.
Yep, they make adhesive chalkboard paper that comes off cleanly. Another great option for rentals.
Pros: I love chalkboards!
Cons: That's a big a** chalkboard! Do I like chalkboards that much?
3. Antique Ephemera
Mmmm vintage book pages, vintage sheet music, the possibilities are endless!
Pros: Awesome, vintage vibe
Cons: I could be too lazy to sticky tack hundreds of book pages to a 10 foot wall.
1. Lots O' Mirros
Oh how elegant this would look in our little hallway!
2. Embroidery Hoops
I think this adds so much texture and interest to a wall. I'd definitely use some vintage-inspired fabric, hopefully Cabbages and Roses.
Cons: Too busy?
3. Shelf with Hooks
I think this is really the direction I'd like to go. It provides interest, storage space and display space without taking up floor space.
Here are my two options for shelves:

PS- If you know of any other awesome vintage-y shelf/hook combos, send 'em my way!
