When It Rains, I Rearrange

I recently spray painted an old mirror I had yellow. It used to be bronze. Icky. That prompted a new arrangement on top of my Nana's cedar chest (which I still have not painted).

Which do you like better:


Gray tray?

Or books?

I can't decide. Maybe neither.

  2. I like both, probably the books a little better (because I like those books), but what I really dig is that lamp!!!! I'm a sucka for a white porcelain lamp! BTW the yellow mirror is too cute.

  3. I like the books but maybe not quite so many. I'm a big rearranger too, the only problem with our house is that it's so small the combinations are limited!

  8. I really just looked at these like 15 times. haha, but I'm going to have to say I like the books better. Not sure why, maybe because of the added height? OR you could add something taller to the tray and I would like that better! Either way, love the bright yellow, it's automatically fun.

  14. BOOKS! I know I would find myself tossing random crap into the tray, and eliminating the temptation would help.

  17. I like it either way, but I think that I would love the mirror if it were vertical. Mirror looks great yellow!

  19. Honestly, I think both arrangements have their charms. But I'm going with the books because a) it looks neater and b) I'm a book fiend!

  20. I vote books, but I think I would take out a few and scoot the stack over to the right so it's not centered in front of the mirror. (Love the mirror, by the way. I did a high gloss black on a bronzed monstrosity someone gave us.)

  23. Love the color you painted the mirror! I would go with the tray, although they are both cute!

  24. My vote is books! I love the colors they bring out and texture they add to the area. I LOVE that mirror!

  25. Mirror looks great. Definitely books. But again, not so many and I wouldn't centre them. I'd put them or something in front of one of the corners. In fact I would turn the mirror the other way round, and then put something in front of it which was half in front of the mirror and half away from the mirror. Maybe on the lamp side...

  26. I like the books, it's more streamlined!

  27. I'm going against the tide and saying the tray. I'm loving the gloss yellow mirror.

  28. Books! The bright yellow was a good choice.
