The next step was to decorate the top of the chest. Vignette time!!! I love to decorate tabletops.
I began with one of my baskets into which I put some pieces of filler and greenery. It is hard to tell from the picture, but the honey gold of the basket looks quite nice in contrast to the black.
The next option was a brass bowl with pears. While the colors were nice, the scale of the bowl was not right to my eye.
