larger urns...???

Thank you for your opinions on the dining room urns and pedestals!
Having all of you weigh in is the perfect answer for my indecisiveness!


The vote was almost equally split whether I should keep them or store them.
Several of you suggested I try larger urns....I happened to have some outside!

So, larger urns...
and a mirror I picked up while at Home Goods, just to check out the look.


 Also, I could give the pedestals a touch of darker paint to better blend with the urn.

They were originally bright white and I painted them to compliment the smaller urns.
Here was the original photo I posted asking your opinion.

 
 
The decision...

I was trying to use them, just because I had them, and
I don't dislike them.
BUT...
Although I love a classic traditional look,
 I wanted to include mix of some modern elements and keeping these felt like I wasn't
heading in that direction.
If I'm going to redo a room, I don't want to like it, I want to LOVE it!

Going, going, gone!

Now I feel like I can move forward with a new plan for those spaces...yay!
Woo Hoo, Darn, another trip to Home Goods to return the mirrors!

I liked them but I'm sure whatever you have planned is going to be fantastic! Maybe you could use them somewhere else?

I'm liking this decision and that attitude about loving the room--good for you! Can't wait to see what you find!

Wait to go Pam - good for you! Sometimes it's so hard to make these what seem like little decisions, but they have huge impact. I haven't been to a Home Goods in a few weeks - maybe it's time for me to take a ride over.

I'll be right over for our HomeGoods trip! So do you know what the new plans are yet or are they still in thought process?

Good for you. Sometimes it's so hard to make a decision in our own homes. Can't wait to see what you find!

I can't wait to see what you end up with (and the new home for the pretty urns). I'll be with you in spirit at HG!

I love the larger urns but I like the color of the pedestals... so maybe you could lighten the urns to the color of the pedestals? Is that even possible? Love the overall look though! It's going to be great!

Good choice! I bet that whatever you put there will please you more than the column/urn combo!
