Back in February we traveled down to Grand Rapids in search of a chest of drawers that I wanted to have in place of the round table that I'd been using by the door.
Anyone of you that has followed me has seen many displays using my little round table.
I've had fun using it for the holidays and seasonal displays.
When I got the masonite table it was the best I could afford plus it has hidden storage underneath which was always a bonus. I've found it a new home near Dan's stereo set up and gave him a place to set his things.
2 months later it arrived.
I found it through Ethan Allen and was delighted to know it's made in America. The handles are an antiqued silver. Sometimes they look like a soft gold and other times more silverfish.
I knew right away that I needed something above it and didn't feel like anything I already had was going to work. We were at a local furniture store I spotted mirror. I was sure it was going to work but after measuring it it was way too large so I had to let go of that idea.
I have a thing for the quatrefoil design so I did some searching for quatrefoil mirrors and finally landed on this one.

I love stained wood so this was right up my alley. I chose it because it also has the kind of coloring as our formal dining set, the dimensions were great and it offers a bow front kind of like a bombay chest.
My Pottery Barn candle holders ended up here and I really like it. At night they candles come on with the timer and give a nice soft glow.
I like that it reflects things in the room and the mirror offers a place to view yourself before you go out the door! My chair works well with it too and even the legs have a similar design (didn't even plan that one!). Now I want a larger rug that can encompass the door area and at least part of the chest to pull it all together as they say!
