The mat had a little water stain going on so I painted over just the brown mat.
I was not sure where I was going to hang this but finally decided on my bedroom. Then it sat on the floor behind the door for a very long time until.....
...last week when I found this at the Green Shag Antique Mall.
I determined they worked well together, so I purchased it. The Eiffel Tower has a piece of plastic, rather than glass, covering it and I think I will be replacing that. The refection factor is pretty intense. In the process I may consider a second mat as well. All that to be determined.
I hung them for now while I think about those things.
I'm also considering a different lamp for the table. I may try that first before changing the hanging location.
At least this mini project is moving in the right direction.
And I can live with this arrangement for now.
PS: I found a lamp late yesterday afternoon that I like for this corner. What do you think? Is it a keeper?
It is definitely a better reading lamp than the tall one. And I think the base on this one adds dimension and a reflective quality to the tabletop. Sounds like I have already made my decision but it's always nice to get a second opinion.
