The barn beams look great with the brick wall.
This wall runs to our bedroom. So, you can see a bit of the brick when you're standing in our room.
I love it!
Once we get the mortar filled in, we have new light switches with decorative plates to fit over them. They will fit flush with the brick wall.
Have you ever heard of push button switches?
This is the light switch plate we're considering. We are looking at it in a wroght iron finish, so it'll be mainly black. It's forged steel and nice and heavy.
They do have plain ones without all the interest, but we kind of like this. It looks better with the black finish, but unfortunately, I couldn't grab the photo off the internet. *sigh*
But you can find it here if you're interested, just select the oil rubbed bronze finish. It says oil rubbed bronze, but it looks like wrought iron to me.
So, we have the push button switches, we bought them last fall, but haven't bough the covers yet. Once we get the mortar in the brick, we'll start switching out the switches... hehehe
I think it'll look cool against the brick and against the dark green wall by the dining room table and the mural. It's vintage and it's industrial-looking.
What do you think?
