Help, something is missing

Recently I bought 9 of these:

$1.95 at

And hung them on my wall like this:

But something is not right. What does it need? A frame around it? A square painted behind it? A circle painted behind it?  The wall is Sherwin Williams Beachhouse.  I need some ideas.


  1. a statue of the virgin mary and your altar is complete.

  2. it's really hard for me to say..i would need to see it in the daytime, unlit. i mean it's good to see it lit but i need to see it the other way too.
    but i will think about it in the meantime and get back to you.

  3. I will send you the unlit photo if you don't mind

  4. I found your blog from MFAMB...
    I agree with her, it's a little hard to tell.
    BUT - I think you're on the right track that it needs some contrast behind it. I'm not a huge fan of the painted circles or squares on the walls... have you considered painting the whole wall?? Maybe a nice dark color?

    I would maybe add a console table or chair underneath it too, if you can.

    Just my 2 cents! ;-)

  5. thanks Rachel! It is funny that you said to paint the whole wall, I love that idea, but I think I would be divorced if I did. when we moved in the wall was aqua, I begged my husband to paint it asap, chocolate brown. 2 months later, I was claustrophobic, so Beachhouse. Now I am wanting something darker again. He is done with me. You can't see it but the end of the couch is on that wall. I will to post a better photo.

  6. I am not sure what to do yet, but you cannot have your hubby paint that wall yet another color!!!
