Help! I hate this wall! i want to change the mantle and alcove.
March 23, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We've lived in this house for 2 years now and I have hated this wall the entire time. I have no idea why there are boards at the top of the wall that meet the ceiling. There's a big alcove behind my tv that I can't completely close because it's where the power and cable connect. The mantle is hideous too (it looks like a big chunk of wood) and I wouldn't even know how to begin to get rid of it. The entire wall is shown in the picture (about 10 feet across). I'd love some ideas on how to change this and make it look better. Don't mind all of the toys in the picture!
