Welcome to my foyer! I have been experimenting lately with my iPad creating a different view including the antique mirror over the credenza and the three tier table reflected from the formal living room. Now, I’m wondering what I did without that iPad!
Back to that view of the three tier table, that I just happened upon probably 15 years ago. It’s moved around in our home over the years. And I’m never been quite sure what would be best displayed on the three tiers. Trust me I have stuff….don’t we all have “stuff” that is somewhere in our homes if only we could remember just where! Teasing a bit, but actually this great table sat without a thing on its tiers for ages in a corner of our family room. It has what is known as a “pie crust” edge on each tier. To tell the truth, I admired it for a reason some people would not want it. Can you imagine what that is? Frankly, it’s nice not to have everything look brand new and untouched. Don’t you feel more at home sometimes, when you see some sign that the furnishings have been loved, enjoyed and used…even perhaps abused? Well, the pie crust on the tiers is not in perfect condition. Ha! In places, it reminds me of some of the pie crusts I attempted to make.
Then the day came for the less than perfect table to move to the guest bedroom on the first floor. That move made me a bit more adventurous with the table tiers. A book from Colonial Williamsburg stayed on lowest tier. A silver jewelry case on another along with things that moved from upstairs to make the three tier table look loved and enjoyed. Somehow, that just did not get the look. You know “the look” we ladies want in our homes. Well, what happened next was the move to the formal living room and there it sits bare as can be except for a vase on the very top tier. There’s no question, it looks strange, but it’s never gone beyond that one item.
The truth is that it’s now been residing in that living room about a year! One vase on top…nothing else. This is where you can help me…please! Do you have a three tier table like this and what do you have on it? I have “googled” and “asked Jeeves” and nothing has led me to the answer. Please leave me a note with your info on how you have decorated your three tier table! Are you thinking, “what’s the rush after 15 years?” I was sure you were…well, this Christmas, I’d love to have that living room look finished….and very much loved. That table is seen before people even turn to enter the living room. The mirror shows it right away in the foyer.
Seriously, I’d love to hear your suggestions for that table. I appreciate your visits very much.
