another dilemma


Found this sofa table on craigslist. It is a super sturdy really really nice table for $80. It needs stuff on it. Am I up for the challenge? Absolutely!! I think it needs a lamp. Something more substantial than a buffet table lamp. This table is a honker. I think it needs some bookends squishing together some vintage books. It needs a big bowl or tray filled with potpourri. Or not. Just making sure you are still with me. Let this new decorating challenge begin!!

Can't wait to see what you come up with! I love the table--gorgeous. Maybe include an empty bowl/tray for keys, coins, etc.
Can I be your super honest friend and you won't feel bad? I think you should hang those squares straight instead of angled. I think it would look more up-to-date and better with a lamp in front of them. But honestly, I'm more of a "straight" girl anyway, and you're my cute quirky friend so by all means, leave them that way if you like it much better. Maybe Bethany will concur or disagree. She's not as "straight" as me :)

Totally agree with Hav. *I think I am her only friend who spells it that way. Have just doesn't work for me! HA!* The tiles have been flipped to straight but now I think they need to be lowered. Will have to do that tomorrow when everyone is up. Oh, and I painted a yellow paint swatch behind one of them about 8 months ago. So yellow paint will show...maybe I will move them lower when we paint the living room.

How about a big bowl on that lower shelf full of colored balls? (Like nice decorative colored balls). Cause, a'hem, I am selling my set of such decorative balls, and think it would make a nice addition. Variety of colors, textures. I currently have them in two large glass vases but am in the process of downsizing my decor. If you're curious, let me know and I'll snap a pic and email to ya!
