Finishing Up Connie's Bedroom, (maybe....)

OK klass,
today we will attempt to finish showing Connie's bedroom.
However.....
Since I am now up in Massachusetts.....
you guys know that in the fall when I go back to Flerida, I will be tweaking and twerking this room a little more.
The small white table between the two club chairs is from Connie's old beach house.
 But we wanted something that had a little sparkle and sophistication that fit in with the glamour of this sumptuous space. 
We went shopping at our go to place in Jupiter Fl, Pineapples and Palms, and found just what we needed.
It's a beautiful little acrylic table with a regency Hollywood flavor. 
It sparkles!!!!!
It works well with all the mirrors in the room, as it adds its own type of glimmer.
To the left of the chairs was a wall that needed some attention.
The previous owners of this house had placed a matching chest of drawers on that wall, but I didn't want to do that.
No No No No.....
I wanted something with a taller profile.
Something that could be a dust collector!!!!!!!
After all, what's a Betsy room without a collection of something or other?????
I wanted tons of mercury glass!!!!!
Mercury glass would just go so well in a room with mirrors and silver.
We just needed a place to put it.
So I said to Connie.....
"Connie, we need a place to put lots of mercury glass. WE NEED SHELVES!!!!!"
SOOOOOOO.......
I started looking around for an etegere.
I wanted one with some shape other than just a rectangle.
Sooooooo....
I did what I always do when I'm working hard.....
I placed my @$$ on a comfy chair and grabbed my iPad mini
(because my regular size iPad would be too heavy, and I am a delicate flower.)
and I started to comb the internet.
WELL!!!!!
I found just what I was looking for, and it was within a half hour of where I lived!!!!!
What did I ever do before the internet?????
WHAT DID I EVER DO BEFORE MY iPad?????
I tracked down an old beat up Regency Hollywood metal and glass etegere in a not so great gold finish.
I figured it would be just dandy in white.
Connie bought it, and before I even had a change to scratch my head
 (or any other places on my body...), 
she had it painted a high gloss white.
It's the perfect size for her bedroom corner, and now we have the fun of filling it up with dust catchers!!!!!
But we don't be carin' bout none of that!!!!!
 WE DON'T DUST!!!!!
On that note,
Latah, Gatah

I agree with Rhoda above, just when you think it can't get better, you go and do it! Wow, can't wait to see all the pretties you fill up that étagère with!!!

This room is so beautiful Betsy. That acrylic table is perfect and the new white étagère will be the pièce de résistance filled with the "we don't dust" dust catchers. Vikki in VA

Hi Betsy, I am always happy when I see your post pop up, and can't wait to see what you'll do next. You and Connie must have so much fun together! I have been meaning to ask you if your Florida house has been published in a magazine yet? Hope I didn't miss it! Martha in Michigan
