Lots of clutter, which I hate, even thought it doesn't look like it right now. I prefer a few larger items with big impact than lots of small knicknacks.
At my favorite shopping destination, the Goodwill store, I had found some mismatched wooden candlesticks that fit the bill. And a plate. If you're lookin' for a plate and you can't find it at the Goodwill, then there's somethin' wrong with ya.
So sorry, forgot the "before" picture (of the candlesticks).
I paid $5.96 total for these. Already had the bird, I love her because she's chunky. Nester says to make our rooms reflect the people who live there, right? Now, soon I will have actual CANDLES, but that would've taken more than 10 minutes, and I was already late, so...
