    How large is it? And how large would the mirror be? Also do you have a photo in mind? Sorry to answer a question with questions, but I think we could offer better advice with more details.

    no problem any advice is great any ideals is great it is 16in width 20in long. putting it in my livingroom and my decor is rustic but alot of brown so i am trying to add some color to it because i cant paint my walls so decor will have to be the color added

  • You know those "vintage" plastic framed oval mirrors? The frames are made to look very ornate. A small one hung in the center painted with an accent color might work. It would also give depth to your piece. You can usually find them for under $20 in the size you need. Let us know what you decide and send a picture.

    so when you say accent color are you meaning like a gold or something or one of the blue or brown and i have a couple of the vintage frames great ideal

    I like the frame idea.

    This is just a quick, rough idea..post photos when you decide what to do!

    My first thought is that you should add a frame to the center, but don't stop there. Add a similar frame to the outside of the canvas, as well. It would help what is added to the center make more sense and tie it together. Perhaps some stained pallet lumber or rustic lumber would work. I can't help but feel that it will appear "unfinished", otherwise. So to elaborate on Therese's drawing....

    I like the idea of an interior and exterior frame, too. I think maybe a mirror would be better than a photo, unless you already have the perfect photo to match this piece of art (and if you did, maybe you wouldn't be asking us). It also seems like a 4X6 photo would get lost in there.

  • I like Leslie D.'s idea. With maybe a quote added to top and bottom.

    I like Leslie D's idea as well! The paint technique works very well as a background for this type of look.
