Marriage ~ A Happy Medium

This marriage of two pieces makes for a Happy Medium.
I purchased the two pieces at two different times.
You know how they say "opposites attract!"
And how, 'without darkness there can be no light.'
I like mixing a dark piece in it's original state with a cream creamy white painted piece, creating a nice contrast.
I love how these pieces look together, they are as attractive as you make it after adding
your treasures to display in and on it!
I painted the top piece except for the drawers. First had it hung on the wall and was trying to decide if I should paint the drawers as well!
Then I added it to the top of this buffet that I had removed the doors from, allowing for additional display surface! Now I am glad that I didn't paint the drawers as I think they bring it all together ~ complimenting one another!
Marriage is good when the pair is compatible, each one unique in itself, each one a compliment to the other both in life and when decorating!
Thanks for visiting!
