Yesterday when I stopped over to say hello to the parentals I made the mistake of knocking my mom's decorated home off it's axis.
She showed me this clock that belonged to my grandfather that she hung up in the dining room and I might have rattled off some something like...
"Well now it's thrown off the whole room and you need to replace that picture over there with a big mirror and add a scroll thingy above it to fix it. Easy enough."
"Well, what do I do with the picture?"
"How about you put that picture above the mantel because I've never thought the other looked that good?"
Big mistake because my mother realizes her mantle hasn't been cutting it the last 3 years. MUST BE FIXED. So, we do some switching around and decide the picture is looking better, but it needs something else. We tried out a couple of options, but honestly we've hit unknown territory. WHY ARE THESE MANTLES SO DIFFICULT? So, dear bloggy friends would you be ever so kind to lend us some assistance to get me back on the family will and allow my dad to stop pretending to care what the mantle looks like. Ignore the glare, her point and shoot wasn't cooperating.
So we gathered up some stuff that she owned to play... the first two show a lamp which would need some more weight too it. What would you add? We're leaning more towards the vase but maybe a little skinner and taller? What color would you do? Or is the picture too big? Tear it apart friends!
Thank y'all for your suggestions!
