So here is what happened.  My hubs and I went to Wolf's Furniture to get our new dining room.  Online I had picked out six chairs and the china cabinet.  WEEEEEELL when I got to the store I fell in love with this other set.  It was similar in design but built a lot better.  We wrote up the order for the china cabinet, six chairs, the table and a jute rug, BUUUT, as we were writing it all up I could not keep my eye off of the server so we added that as well.   The china cabinet was on back order but they immediately delivered the server and table set.  I was so excited but the server just did NOT fit on the wall I had hoped.  No worries...... I thought I will just put it where the china cabinet was going to go and I would put the china cabinet where the server was originally planned to go.  Well (again), when the china cabinet finally came there was NO way and what I mean is NO WAY that it was fitting in the dining room.  Being in love with it too much I could not send it back so I moved it to the living room.  Now you know, the cabinet just did not go with my furniture in that room.  Soooooo I took down the picture and removed the white chair, instead opting for what were the end chairs in my dining room.  This lead me to Kirklands where I found these lovely  shell canvas prints.  A couple little touches in the cabinet and the room was complete.  Oh I can't forget the coconut on top of the cabinet that I brought back from a recent trip to Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida.

One of the pictures from Kirklands.  I love it. 

The lamp that I've had forever but didn't go with anything.  
I am so happy to now be able to see it.

I'm going to go now and cozy up in my new room and read a book now.  I hope you are enjoying your space and your day as well.
