Paint Dipped Table Round 2

The paint dipped table I showed you last Friday has made it's way to the top of our stairs, where it will live happily ever after.  For now. 

I wanted to ground it with a rug, but a rug right in front of a staircase makes me nervous.  I kept imagining one of us holding Charley, tripping on the rug, and rolling down the steps.  Not a good image.  I ended up folding a rug so only a few inches stick out.  There's plenty of room to walk without stepping on the rug, so we should be good to go.  If it becomes a problem, I'll bid adieu to the rug, don't you worry.

I found the basket at Homegoods on sale.  I filled it with some throw blankets.  You know, just in case someone needs a blanket in our upstairs hallway.  Seems pretty valid. 

I topped the table with a Love platter that we got for our wedding, a stack of magazines, a bird (because, well, I love birds), and the glass memory jar that holds post cards from our family trips.  Above the table is our wall o' maps that I talked a little bit about here.

I love our most recent map of Ohio with a heart on top of Oxford.  Go Miami!

This area of our house is so dark and dreary, it needed something like mint green table legs and a bright patterend rug to cheer it up.  Light gray walls and white trim wouldn't hurt either.  Soon, very soon.

Oh, and how could I not mention the light fixtures.  We like to refer to them as Great-Grandma's candy dishes.  Feast your eyes on this beauty.

Yeah, those won't be staying.  In fact, you'll probably find them in the yard sale we plan to have this spring.
