Home Decor: Ugly Faceplates and Wall Tapestries
In my dining room, I have a wall that has two ugly faceplate covers on it. Of course, they’re not at the bottom of the wall—they’re front and center. Every time I walk by the ugly ivory plates with the four large screws, I cringe. Since I live in a rental, removing them is not an option. In order to save my sanity, I need to find a stylish way to cover them up. I thought about making a vintage-inspired grocery sign but then I realized it would never lay flat on the wall. One faceplate extends half an inch from the wall and the other about an inch.
One option I’ve been considering is wall tapestries. They are generally made of flexible materials which means they can cover those faceplates without much fuss. The problem? Picking out a design that doesn’t clash with the aqua and white farmhouse theme. After looking at about 100 wall tapestries, on 10 different websites, I thought I’d share a few of my finds.
This might be the one I order (pictured below). What do you think?
But I really like this one too!
Sanibel Wall Tapestry (Don’t you like the way the colors blend together?)
Bicycle by Christen Treat (This one would look cute in a hallway or bedroom).
Life Is… (This landscape view is stunning!)
Venice Wall Hanging (This picturesque scene makes me want to hop on a plane and head straight to Venice!)
Vintage Hand-Loomed Tapestry (Something from the Victorian era, maybe?)
I’ve narrowed it down to two but that’s as far as I’ve gotten. Any suggestions?
