more pictures that inspire

I'm still on the hunt for pictures that inspire me. I realized last night that I'm a little obsessed at the moment, with this decorating thing. It stands to reason though. We're not in the house yet, we're house sitting, so I really have nothing else to occupy my mind. I'm restless. I want to get in there and start making it a home!!! Only 5 more days until we get in, but it's these last days that are going by the slowest!

Here's our new coffee table. It's birch with a dark stain. I found this picture online. We got it for a really good deal, it was marked down for clearance. It was my hubby that really wanted it, and it grew on me quickly. I usually don't like furniture with glass in it, but I love all the levels for displaying some things. I'm not sure if I'll leave it with the dark stain, I might end up painting it, but maybe not. I do want to add some fine lined dark accents to our decor (now there's a word you won't hear me say often!).

Oh , I would love to see it painted in a mucky grey green, it would give it some aged appeal, like a found treasure not a slick new piece.That's my 2 cents.
What fun , I too con't normally like glass but that is nice with the three shelves.

ha, i was hoping you'd give your 2 cents!

i was thinking that colour too. i think it would do the trick to get rid of the contemporary look. i could even distress it a bit, to show the darker stain underneath.
