What can I do with this planter area?
My home was built in the 70s with this planter area right inside the living room. It had one of those dark mirrors with the gold design on it (which I still have). What can I do with this area, I like real plants but I won't take care of it. I'm turning the room into a combo formal dining/library with bookcases along one wall, dining table in middle, and 2 chair/table reading area next to this half wall. I plan on putting a vintage bar cart on the other wall so I won't need a bar area here. We are working on the updating, walls will be retextured and painted. Any ideas?
