My mom was visiting today and we decided it was time to put my dining room in order starting with the china hutch. Thank goodness for mom. Sometimes I just can't figure out where to start.
Here he is in all his naked glory. Well, not entirely naked. His backside is still covered with the scrapbook paper the I added before we moved.
I wanted to use black/white stuff so I opened up a bunch of boxes and put everything on the table. Then I had lots of things to play with. And that's really what this is. Play. It should be fun! Fiddle to your heart's content.
I knew that I wanted to put the birdcage on top of the cabinet to fill up some of the space above. It needed to be set on something to raise it up a bit.
Oops. The mixing bowl made it too high.
Much better. The empty box of swiffer refills was the perfect size.
After much fiddling and fooling, this is the result.
Even with the birdcage, there was still a lot of dead space on top so I hung a few plates on the wall. I love, love, love this!!!! I'm always trying to fill that space on top of the cabinet with something...urns, baskets, books, basketballs, whatever...but it never occured to me to actually hang something on the wall! Those plates made me giddy!
Pretty good. But something still isn't right.
But nothing that my trusty black spray paint can't handle.
