The Great Wall of Susan

That's what Todd's been referring to this wall as. Because he doesn't quite get it. He thinks old stuff is just that--old. And junky. I beg to differ. I think old is faaaabulous. Anyway, I'm debating whether to leave it as is or to continue up and over every nook and canny.

Here are a few of the numbers that I got at Barn House. I realized I already had a seven. Oops. However, kind of fitting that it says 787 because Todd is working on the 787 at Boeing! :)
I hung my grandfather's old pocket watch up as well.

What do you think? Should I go all out and cover every inch of that wall? Or leave it be?

I think it would look amazing to cover the wall! It obviously looks great as is- but it would be so unique if it continued to under the window ledge too!

Hey Susan! LOVE the wall! My hubs actually loves old stuff too, but not quite as much as I do. :)

Cover that puppy! It'll be awesome to see all the unique stuff you can find. What a conversation piece it would be. :)

That is a difficult choice because it truly looks perfectly done right now as it is. But I can see how covering the wall would be fun and unique as well...it's hard because you wouldn't want to ruin a good thing! ;)

Jesse said...

Yep, I agree! Cover the rest of the wall. Love where your going with it, great stuff!

Hello Susan - your wall looks fabulous now, but I think it would look even more fab with MORE on it! I agree with Sheila - it's "Junque" not junk. LOL. I say if it makes you happy when you look at it, then go for it!

Blessings,
Marie

Love it! I would keep going below the opening.

I really like it--I think the whole wall would look cool, too. I like when things look dramatic--even junque.

Wonderful! Keep going!
What you are using is so cool you could cover the entire house!
Anyway can you tell I love it?
