I remember doing that once with a Christmas tree. You know they look so much smaller growing out in the wild. lol! No big deal, just cut some of it off.
A piece of furniture, however is a different story.
Two months ago we bought an entertainment center. One piece was on back order and then because of the dock strike it was just delivered on Tuesday.
Whoa baby, it's big, heavy too! Much larger than I had remembered.
It definitely is taking center stage! Ha, ha, notice that the power serge is lying on the ground still.
You certainly can't miss it. Kind of like an elephant in the room. he-he.
I should have known that Paula Deen doesn't do anything half way. It's all or nothing!
Big, beautiful, and stylish that's her motto.
I love the added numbers! It has shelves too that can be added if you want to use it as a book case instead.
I love it, but it's going to take a bit of trial and error to get it staged nicely.
Hubby, thought that we needed a larger t.v. Although last night he said now that I had added things on the sides it didn't look bad.
I just shopped the house to create a couple of Spring vignettes.
I was tired of what we had on the wall and wanted to mix things up a little. Now is the perfect opportunity.
I don't care for the color of the window frames with the entertainment center. Thinking I might sand them more and add some dark wax. The clock definitely needs raised.
My friend, Joyce said she didn't mind the color of the frames. What do you think?
I placed this rustic planter box on top just to see if I thought I might want to paint the window frames white. Didn't like it! The smaller window and shelf need to be centered in the space.
I would like something like this for up there. I saw it at the St. George Home Shows and loved it!
I've had this canvas garden sign outdoors for a few years. It had cracked and was faded. Didn't mind the cracking, but I repainted it a while ago and thought it fit nicely in the arch.
Also wondering if I should just stand the window on top, bracing it to the wall of course or hang it more centered and lower.
Whatever I do on top I think that I need to keep it fairly simple. Because the mantle is pretty busy.
I'm already contemplating different collections I could display up there.
For example: my three vintage bird cages
how about my old fans. Fun for summer don't you think?
Although I've got my work cut out for me getting this piece just right. Think of the fun I'll have playing with it for a while!
and just to give you an idea of what I'm working around, this is our furniture sitting directly across from this beast, I mean beauty!
I'm sure changes will come.
