Any Ideas???

So here is a picture of the rosette heart that I made hanging on the screen. This is not the one from my lovers Grandmas chicken house. That one is hanging in the mudroom and this is in the living room. 
This screen came from his aunt Janie's old farm house that she was gutting before she died. Long Story....
It is an old window screen. Pretty neat I think. It makes a great canvas to decorate for holidays and such. I haven't done anything to it since I took down all the Christmas stuff. 
So I hung these cute hearts on it...
What do you think??? I think it still needs something.....hmmm. still thinking of what I could do. I have a sign I might hang above it to hide that ugly spot on the wall.
What happened was that when we moved in, the walls were that horrible dark, fake paneling with mauve trim and teal carpet...it was sooooo bad. The first thing we did was rip up the carpet, wood floors under neath, paint the walls and ceiling. I wasn't really sure what color to paint it so we just did a white with a little different white for the trim. We hung this huge gun cabinet on the wall for the first few years. My husbands uncle made it but seriously it was not my style. I finally got him to take it down but it took some of the paneling with it. I now want to paint it a tan or khaki color, but I have a few other projects that need finished first.  So this is what I have to work with for now.

I said all that to say this...HELP..any ides??? I like the hearts but it still needs something. The red vine thing is there because I never took it down and it rotates from room to room. So it is optional...
Thanks for listening to my ramblings!

Oh, I forgot to tell you about a giveaway over at 8-muddy boots! check it out!!

  1. That's really cute with the hearts! You could add some vintage postcards tucked in here and there, if you have some. You could also rearrange things and hang some little pictures on it using S hooks if you have any. Just my thoughts! : D


    PS: That reminds me that I have 2 of those out in the garage that I really should do something with myself!
