I was not sure of the orange candlestick...so I took it away. If I bring my orange velvet pillows to the sofa...I will bring back the orange candlestick.
The wood tray is newish...but has a distressed look.
I still have my leopard down filled pillows on the sofa. They have a heavy fabric...but are comfortable. Can I use these through the summer? I usually put some lighter weight fabric pillows on this sofa during the warmer months.
Here are the sturdy handles! Great for when you need to slide or lift the trunk.
I will leave the jug, hurricaines, and brass bowl on the top of the trunk for a few days and then see if there is something else I might like better. I am always moving things around...so we shall see what the next few days bring.
I caught Mikey in my lens...taking one of his (senior) naps!
Speaking of Mikey, he went to see his vet a couple of weeks ago for his annual checkup.Plus this time he had a "senior" blood panel. He has lost weight over the year because we had him on weight reduction dog food. Like his people...he had gained some weight. We wanted to check that all was ok. Mikey also had a cyst on his right shoulder...and so he had a biopsy of that. We waited on pins and needles a good week before we got the results. The vet thought some of the cells looked suspicious...so we were worried. Good news...all blood work was great, and the cyst was ok afterall. Whew...! Glad we dodged a problem. Mikey is our baby.
I will be sure to share photos if I create a different table top, or rather trunk top! I will play around with books, trays, etc. and see what looks I can design.
The greatroom is a dark room, and I find it to be the most challenging room in the house. It is great for watching movies and
television because of low light. But overall it is much darker than any other family living spaces we have ever had. And, there is no way to add more windows. The room is dark because of our back porch roof. Can't have it all I guess. ha!
Maybe with your help I can brighten up this room with some tweaks along the way.
Thanks for visiting!
