Help!

This is not a Valentine's Day post. I just got the pictures from my phone finally put on my computer so I can ask for internet help.

You see, there's this wall:

And it's the wall you see right as you open up our front door. It's next to the kitchen and there are some pretty good sized nail/screw holes in the wall that you can see in this picture if you look closely.

So here's the thing, I went shopping to fix this wall and make it more welcoming. I came home with a few things which fixed this wall:

And made it look like this:


And then our window which had some huge screw holes by it was fixed up and made to look like this:

And I even found a little something to add to our kitchen:

(in case you were wondering, I am not talking about the shelf above the sink, I was talking about the sign above the cupboards)

But ... after finding all that, the one thing I thought would work for that blasted wall was too skinny. Sooo ..... Help me figure out what to do with this wall:

Please?

Bed, Bath, and Beyond has some cute frame sets that you could use to make a collage on the wall. They always send out those 20% off coupons, so you can usually find a decent deal :)

Ooooo I love this kind of stuff!

I have read that mirrors are really good for entryways, especially when you are greeted by just a wall. They are welcoming and open and roomy. You could try a pretty mirror in a nice frame, or a mirror with some decorative stuff on it, actually on the mirror, like shutters that open and close. Or a mirror with a shelf under it or on the sides for candles. Or little shelves that you can display nicknacks you have on a rotating basis. Sconces are nice too. Post what you do with it!

I would put a mirror there. You could even do one with a little shelf and key hooks on the bottom if you don't already have key hooks.

something like this http://www.amazon.com/Target-Pub-Mirror-Espresso/dp/B000I80568/ref=pd_sbs_k_2

if you have room in the floor you could put something like this for your shoes http://www.amazon.com/Winsome-Wood-Storage-Hall-Bench/dp/B0012AD748/ref=sr_1_8?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1297731197&sr=1-8

I want to see what you do, so be sure to post. I always like personal pictures, but I am old and sentimental! Ha!
