Outdoor Wall Art

There's one thing missing from my terrace: wall art.  The wall space outside is very limited, if you can even call it wall space, but I have one spot that I'm just dying to put something on.  I've been looking for outdoor canvas art, but really haven't found anything.  And you can bet I've been searching the 4 Home Goods that I frequent.  My neighbors have stuff like metal art or clay hanging planters on their little walls.  I thought about putting up an outdoor clock with a temperature gauge on it but I haven't liked the ones I've seen along the way.  So the other day, on my way to Home Goods of course (is this confession time?), I stopped into Pier1 to switch things up a bit.  Well, I found the coolest thing ever!  It's so cool that I was trying to figure out if I had any place at all to put it, even if it didn't fit the outside (tiny) wall.  It's called the "Mirrored Damask Panel" and here's what it looks like.  Sorry, this is the best picture I could get, it's from the pier1 website.  Here is the link in case you want to see more info:

The panel isn't made for outside use, but I think it would be okay on the wall.  My terrace is covered and that wall never gets direct wetness (yes, that's right, I said direct wetness).  I would totally chance it for this beauty.  I just hope they still have it when I'm ready to buy it.  I have to wait a few months, new job and all. 

So, I searched through all of my pictures for one that showed the wall I'm talking about and this is the best I could find (sorry, I'll have to take some).  Here is a pic from last year when I first planted flowers.  The wall is to the right.  It's narrow but the panel would fit!  The terrace door opens into that wall but so what! I mostly sit out there with the door closed anyway!

Okay, so I'll keep you posted on whether or not I get the panel!  I really want it!!!!!!! Hopefully, it's a question of when and not if.  Who knows, maybe I'll find something else I like better on one of my many trips to... well, you know where...

Thanks for stopping by and Stay tuned for more creativity!


  1. The panel would like nice in your dining room! Outside it my rust. It would stand out so beautifully on your colorful walls.

  2. You just gave me an interesting idea. I'm not sure it will work, but I'm going to check it out. Thanks!
