Pillar for my den….


So I thought this pillar would look amazing in the corner where I needed a little height…I kinda think I like it!  It fills up a little space that looked bare!

question, am I doing too much “chippy” paint in here?






















Thoughts are appreciated! xoxo

I love it! I don't see too much chippy in there. I like the height.
I have a pillar too, it's in the man cave right now. I was thinking of putting it in my den in the same spot you have it! Great minds think alike!

Every time I see the photos of your pretty slip covered wing backs my heart goes pitter patter. :) I have a slipped wing back but it surly does not compare. I've always loved wing back chairs and yours are to die for. The pillar only adds to the cozy cottage feel. I love it. I see the chippy paint too, what a great find! xoxo tami

I love it too...and I think it is perfect for that corner. The table between your chairs is a gorgeous piece. Love it! I think the chippiness just adds to the charm. Hugs-Diana

Hi Tracie... I love your den, it is so pretty!... I think you should do what YOU want to do in there!... I do what makes Jack and I happy in our home... I don't worry about what is "in" or "trendy"... our little farmhouse style has not really changed a whole lot in the last 25+ years... that's what I love about the country~farmhouse~cottage way of life... so many beautiful things all blend together perfectly... YOU are unique, and it shows in your decorating... be happy!... xoxo Julie Marie
