I love Pottery Barn

I hate that I love Pottery Barn so much.  I just do, so I'll have to get over it.  My "little" brother gave me a giftcard to there for Christmas.  He was quite proud of his gift because he wrapped it so I could not find it.  Pretty smart move D ;)  I already know what I am getting.  This space needs to be a little more formal.

Well, then this didn't work because it didn't set the "mood" I was looking for the room.  So these went upstairs to the "man room".

So then we did this.

But this doesn't work either.  Still not formal enough, but getting there.  We are going to leave the paper wreath and add this lovely shelf underneath with fun accessories to accent it!

Now we have to decide if we want Antique White or Esspreso Stain.  I'm thinking Esspresso Stain will look the best with the colors in the living room and the paper wreath.

I love this shelf because it's thicker and can hold books.  I think we'll add some old books with a frame or 2.  We'll see what we have laying around :)  I'll add pictures once it's finished!

Love that shelf, and I feel the same love/hate with Pottery Barn...

Hope you had an awesome holiday!
