I think it needs more paint.  Then you can put little knick knacks on it

It may be the light but it looks sloppy.  I would not put that on my wall.

I painted the whole thing black, then the front of the squares silver then I put random things of black on the front of the squares.

I see that.  Im saying it looks like there are finger prints or unsanded and filled knots on the front.  Something makes it so it isnt a nice smooth surface.  Im guessing you didnt use wood filler on the knots and then sand it until its very smooth.

then you should go all the way to distressed.  Silver and black are colors used in an art deco type decor.  It should not be used for a more rustic look.  

This is how rough is used appropriately. 

here is how solid black is used appropriately.  The way you did it just looks accidental and sloppy.
