A couple of weeks ago my Mom-in-Love gave me a piece of furniture that she really could not find a spot for. She finds wonderful pieces of furniture at consignment and antique shops and had too many pieces in her home. So she asked me if I would want this piece. Oh yeah!
This piece has pretty fall coloring to it. I am hoping for some input on how I should dress this piece. Do I leave it as is? I have my favorite print above it right now.
Another problem I have is that the print is hanging to high over the table. I had a taller table sitting under it before and I do not have any of this paint nor do I know what color the paint is because it was on the walls when we moved in. I plan on painting this room in the next few months but I am helping a daughter paint some rooms in her house right now so I am not ready to paint quite yet. Do I just move the print down and ignore any marks that might be left behind or do I put something tall on the table? Or does the print not work with the chest? I have to admit I have never been so stumped on how to use a piece of furniture.
What would you sit on a chest with a painted top like this? I normally would fill something like this with framed pictures and a candle or some sort of decorative piece. I would love a little advice if anyone would be willing to give it. Have a wonderful weekend.
I am a mother of 3 daughters and grandmother of 8, 6 boys and 2 girls. I love to sew, paint, garden and enjoy many different crafts. Ladybug is actually my Scottie's name and she gives my hubs and I many hours of pleasure. I dream up many ideas of which a few I manage to make happen. My husband is very talented and has a few hobbies of his own so he puts up with my many hobbies and the mess they leave behind. I cannot say this blog is about anything in particular except our love of home, family and friends with a few interesting things sprinkled in here and there.
