I finally picked out the artwork for above the fireplace! I am really happy with the white frames and matting; I think it creates a great balance with the mantle. Yay for success!
Now I just have to decide what to do above the couch... Right now I just have my xmas wreath up now, but I think I am going to buy a white frame to parallel these frames but one appropriately sized and horizontal. I am going to do a few sketches and see how they look with about 3 inches of matting in the larger frame, and I think that will be good. Then if I do about 4 different sketches I can change them out intermittently!
After yet another well deserved trip to HomeGoods looking for a few larger pieces, this is the final display product! I am finally very happy with this compared to the previous set up. I think the larger pieces were just what it needed (thanks for the imput Maria!). I was going to try to stand two of the white serving trays in the back, but its too difficult to find stands that will hold up that much weight.
This was my knitting needle and crochet hook storage solution! I like displaying them and since I had some extra porcelain I am using them to store things like this. Once I purchase a great shabby chic buffet table to put in this area, these will go on top of that piece. But until then I think this works! :)
I am using an extra tea pot for now for my utensils, but once I find another appropriate sized pitcher I will swap them out. Overall very happy with this! Yay! :D
