A Little Console Make Over

I have a console table that sits on the wall between our living and dining area.  It was on the wall in our dining room but because we are getting a new china cabinet there, I moved it on to this wall.   There were some family photos already hanging there and I just moved the table under.  Every day since then, I have hated the way it looks.  The Tiffany lamp is sentimental because my Dad bought it for me the first time we ever went to the Metrolina Expo together.  My room at their house at the time was done in a Pottery Barn dragon fly bedding and their are dragon flies on the lamp and I had to have it. I still love it, it just needed a new home.   I didn't buy anything new for this area I just re purposed some things.  I still have some work to do and I will probably move the photos elsewhere but for now it looks a lot better!!!  I cringe looking at the bird house. 

This old window I have had for years and never used.  I had Adam pull it down from the attic and we leaned it up against the wall.   I made this wreath Sunday night at midnight and I love it!  I want to get three of the same baskets for the three spots at the bottom.  The lamps I had hanging around.  I think it looks so much better.

P.S. I finally made a new button for the blog! You can grab it in the right side bar!
