Candlesticks & A Sneak Peek

I have had some trouble accessorizing the two built-ins that flank the fireplace in the den: they're wider and deeper than the built-ins in the Little Rock, so I can't just re-create the look from the old house.  

I keep working and re-working different books & fun pieces to try to make them full but not junky.

Books are nice to frame the accessories...


and I've started using some of my favorite creamers & sugars as bookends...


... but still having trouble finding vertically-oriented objects.

Until $18 bought these candlesticks at Marshall's...




I like that they add height to the shelf, but do not take up too much visual space.  Very nice.

We've been working on building a homemade farmhouse table (see about it here & here), and it's finally shaping up! Here's a little peek at how the white washing process turned out...


Stay tuned for the last steps on putting this baby together!
