My last blog post featured my Christmas-is-over edit of our living room.
I removed about half of what had been on our art ledges:
There was yet another living room change that I did’t share.
G.O. hung our vintage outdoor trellis on the wall behind our TV:
After a few days, I had the idea of hanging one of my quilts on the trellis.
Back story on the quilt: I bought the antique squares + made a wall quilt
with some complementary new fabric sashes + border.
Next, I hand-quilted it, which is what I used to do. A lot.
In another lifetime.
While I love both the trellis + the quilt,
after a few days, I concluded that they don’t look that great as a team.
And furthermore, the trellis + dresser/TV combination wasn’t working, either.
That petite dresser looked overwhelmed by the TV,
+ the larger trellis made the whole thing appear top heavy.
OH, WHAT TO DO!?
I rushed to Pinterest, trying to find dressers that did work as TV cabinets:
I shan’t lie — by this time, I was working myself into somewhat of a frazzle.
Then, miraculously, I had a much-needed light bulb moment.
Why don’t we switch out our small dresser for the larger one in our bedroom?
It’s not like THAT’S not gonna make G.O. cross or anything!
I’ll spare the ensuing unpleasantries, but here is said dresser, in place:
That charming dresser could pass for an English antique, don’t you think?
It’s not, though — it’s from Broyhill + is only about 15 years old:
I love the fact that it’s a bow front!
I don’t know what those boo boo’s on the bottom 2 drawers are,
but fingers crossed that we can eradicate them, sooner than later.
Since the dresser + the dining room’s farmhouse table are both pine,
they create a nice flow between the 2 rooms:
Well, my quilt’s been relocated to the wall of my sewing studio.
This means that, for now, the trellis remains unadorned.
Of course, I’m still toying with the idea of hanging something on it —
I just don’t know what.
Possibilities include a large clock or a grid of artwork in matching frames.
Also, does that wall to the left of the dresser/TV need art?
I kind of think so but want to be sure!
