It sounds like what you did was great. I was going to suggest under cabinet lights, but... Will you show us some "after" pictures when you're done?

I think the shower curtain used to be at west elm?

(I never posted a link before so I hope I didn't ruin it.)

Small change, but huge impact. The display looked forlorn before, but now it looks nifty.

Lovely! This one looks like it takes too much skill and elbow grease for me to even dream about.

So inspiring. It could easily have turned out wild and crazy (which would be great, too) but instead it looks like you paid a lot of money for an elegant piece.

Love it! I think the skulls are great, but they aren't even the first things I noticed. Gee, pretty. Lucky baby. I'm going to hunt down my own projector.

Yes, what's that fabric? (Pic 2: Did she unzip her top because of a tricky seam? Pic 3: Did she give up on the tricky seam? Pics 4 & 5: I can't relate.)

I like my dish doctor. It was a gift. Like anh-minh, at my place the dishwasher supplements the dish doctor. Or maybe it is the other way around because I'm lazy. You do have to empty the water often. I haven't been doing that enough and it is always a pain to scrub and soak the gunk off. If there is a next time, I plan to stick the dish doctor in the dishwasher (after removing the dishwasher's upper rack). But I've resolved to be good and just empty it more often.

My nephews would love this. I don't see them often so I try to buy their love. My favorite part of this gift is either the owl puppet or pirate bunny puppet. Okay, it is the pirate bunny.

The writer used both terms, "Huntington Gardens" and "the Huntington". (Scroll down to the second part of the post...there you go.) Maybe I'm not a real Angeleno, despite growing up in L.A. I use both terms interchangeably and will continue to do so.

Anyhow, I enjoyed this post and am looking forward to visiting Huntington Gardens when the scholar's garden opens. Thanks for the news.

Having read your question in full, and being a proponent of tchotchkes (I'm told I have a sickness), I think a couple of cute, colorful vases, maybe some pretty boxes, wee paintings or framed postcards, or smaller books would be nice on the shelves. Just a few of those things. Don't clutter it up. If your sister doesn't have stuff to fill it yet, well, she seems like someone who would WANT stuff to fill it. I mean, she has a console table. Oh, and she asked for filler.

By the way, two pretty, uncovered boxes on that upper shelf might be good for sorting and dumping mail. That could help keep the top less cluttered. The bottom shelves should then be super easy with a couple taller vases or even a lantern. (I know, ridiculous, but I like the way lanterns look.) Maybe stand a few tall-ish, shallow books against the center support.

I would give this to my husband. He would put it on his bedside table but I'd still benefit (shared alarm) and still have room for my stack of unread magazines. Yes! Win-win.
