Call me crazy, or maybe the pic doesn’t show enough detail, but I kind of like the way it looks.

That’s really not bad, I would say instead of going against the current design and trying to make it look like something else maybe incorporate it into your design? If you do dim lights and lots of candles anything comes out looking beautiful!

 

Our barn has one super ugly wall my solution (as prom inspired as it is) is to string christmas lights over it and cover it with gossamer. That might be an option for the painting.

I think most of your guests would happily choose a place with fabulous food over a place with fabulous decor.

I think the room will be fine. Do the curtains on the end wall close? If so, you could just close them to cover that painting. Or you could civer it up.

Depending on the size you need to cover up, it is possible to do so by cutting a piece of foamcore or thin veneer or lauan (it’s a thin plywood), just a tad larger than the opening.

You bend it up into an arc then pop it into place. It will usually stay in place by itself, if you are inserting into into a frame (like a picture). If it doesn’t you can tape it to the frame itself, or  use poster putty.
