The mosaic seemed too narrow to be a proper portrait when I had it laid out, so I decided to include part of the door and have that border it. When I got this all done it looked too plain, so I hacked away at the door pieces to shatter it. Unfortunately, I still don't think it looks good. I'm considering painting REDRUM in red down the left side, I think that might improve it, but I'm not sure. What do y'all think?
I knew what it was the instant I saw it. Is that particle board?
I think its fine the way it is.
The only thing you could do is add a layer of wood over what you have, made of real wood. Then on the leftish could be some actual vertical door trim, then further left could be some sheetrock/plaster wall. More elaborate and time consuming, just depends on how much you want to work on it.
