Many of you said to simply leave it alone for now until I get my curtains. I agree that once my curtains come in, it may fill up that space enough. However, I also agree that I need some greenery in there--I'll work on that. What I didn't tell you is that my husband HATES houseplants. Even if they're real, he thinks they look fake! What's wrong with him? I will tell you this--I think I will either go for the plant or the lamp with drum shade...or the iron work! AHHH!
Thank you, again, for all your help! What I love is that you were all so willing to offer some ideas that it gave me some visuals to work with!
