When we first moved into the 1878, I initially sort of placed my furnishings in the same layout as our previous home. However, after Christmas and the removal of all the Christmas Things, the house felt extremely bare-like as if we had just moved in. It irked my soul (as my daughter would say).
I began fantasizing about building a wall of built-ins to house our television, with pretty shelves to decorate, until my husband shot me back down to reality. With so many more projects taking priority in our home, I needed to find an easy and inexpensive solution to this boring blank wall.
In a quick trip to Ikea (well, not quick, is it even possible to make a quick trip to Ikea, Ha!?) I grabbed 6 Mosslanda Shelves.
I expected to have to trim them down a bit to fit, but they actually fit perfectly on the wall.
These shelves are so versatile, you can load them with art, typography, plants or your favorite collectibles. I basically chose all of the above!

|Another great way to fil up a large wall is to mount objects like Emily at Table and Hearth did. I love this idea for a beach house.|
|Filling a wall with shelves, as Mrs. Major Hoff did in her dining room, is a great way to add interest and dimension to a space.|
So tell me, what are your favorite ways to fill large empty walls?
I love those shelves from Ikea. I like filling empty walls with molding or some sort of nice wall treatment or even a nice gallery wall.
I agree Erin, Wall treatments are always a good idea!
