Good Questions: How Can We Decorate These Walls?

Hello AT,

We live full-time in a log cabin in Vermont. We'd love to hang art or possibly shelves on our walls, but the uneven surface of the logs makes this a big challenge. Do you have any ideas for ways we could decorate (short of a complete renovation)?

Thanks, Pamela

Dear Pamela,

Honestly, with remarkable walls like those, you might want to seriously consider leaving them be so they can speak for themselves. They are, just by virtue of their rough texture, curves and shadows, visually entertaining.

That said, if you wanted to hang a picture or two, running fishing line or wire down from the top log - sort of like a picture rail - would be a good way of hanging something evenly.

Take a look at the picture wall that Jill made here: The Framing Extravaganza.

Anyone else???
