Unfinished and Dishonest
Okay my living room / dining room / kitchen is NOT complete. I have a way with starting projects, nearing completion and throwing in the towel.
So close yet still so far away.
This buffet table is a good example. It was the last thing to arrive in the room and it's been untouched since then.
I absolutely love it. It tucks in nicely behind the chair, next to the mirror.
But it needs something more. I just don't know what exactly.
First we started with 2 brown floating selves that would sit directly above it. But it was 'too heavy' (figuratively speaking).
So then I though a silver dish with living room accents would help, but I'm not exactly sold.
Then I thought these Chinese art pieces (that I actually purchased in China) would fit nicely. They have gold and silver in them which fits nicely with the big purple/gold/silver abstract painting on the same wall.
If I position one higher than the other they might work. And I definitely need some tall vase or something in the corner. What do you think?
Look at all my worldly goodies just sitting in the basement waiting to be displayed:
Oh, and my mom though that maybe I was being a bit misleading about the state of my messiness upstairs in my previous post. From the picture it didn't really look that bad. My mom knows just how messy I can get so to be more accurate it's only fair I show you the current state of our basement:
