Erin sent us an email: I need help arranging this living room wall! We just recently put the shelves (Ikeas Lack shelves) and artwork up, but I can't decide if I like it and wanted a second opinion before we put more holes in the wall and move them again...

We are renting, and the place has 7 foot ceilings, and now that the shelves are up I think the top shelf really makes it look cluttered since the ceiling is so low.

We are going to paint the frames of the bird prints flanking the shelves white or black (they were $10 and came framed in an antiqued black frame which I don't care for). Any advice would be appreciated as to how to arrange everything- the shelves, the stuff on the shelves, the bird prints etc.
