Damaged wall redecoration

Hi all,

I'm looking for suggestions to decorate a damaged concrete wall with latex peelings. The wall is about 12'(width) x 8'6"(height).

There is a mirror wall, floor to ceiling, on another side of the room. On other two sides are fixture and windows. Only this damaged wall is exposed to sight.

In my first thought I consider to hang wallpaper on the wall after its preparation. But it is quite time consuming and labour intensive.

Another thought is building a mirror wall to cover it. It'll save lot of work in applying sealant, sanding and hanging wallpaper. Just order the mirror plates acccording to calculated size with four holes at each corner for fixing. The work would be simple just drilling hole on the concrete wall, fixing the mirror, plate by plate, with screws and sealing the gaps with glass silicone.

After finish the room will look quite beautifully decorated. The glass wall can last a number of years. But it doesn't look good having too many mirorrs in the same room. Besides there is a shelf and decoration plates hanging on the wall. Please refer to following photos;




Although there will be no problem to fix them with holes pre-drilled on the mirror by the factory.

Also I have been considering using tempered semi-transparent glass instead of mirror. The glass plate will press on lining paper, colour/pattern/white. Cable connected the LED light will run under the glass plates or in the gap in between. Fixing glass plates would be easier than hanging wallpaper.

Any other suggestion? Advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
