Personally, I would go with some wall hangings.  A big piece of art or a mirror would be nice.  And a small area rug under the table would go a long way too.

Hmm maybe a change in paint color too?  It looks sort of drab to me.

I would check out Hobby Lobby, they have a lot of inexpensive artwork.  Yes it’s not an original but who cares?

I would paint the color on top a cheerier color. Then you could do what you suggest

I second the wall art, but i’m also a fan of not necessarily hanging a painting on the wall.  You can get great metal ceiling tiles and put them in a 4×2 pattern, or you can get a group of mirrors to arrange in a cool pattern, a sculptural piece, a great wall clock… something that brings in your personality but doesn’t have to be expensive.

I also think you could get a thin console table to  put under the artwork & put one of your centerpieces on it, maybe even a small wine bottle holder.

I think your idea is cute, but personally I’d be worried about it sticking out too far and always bumping into it… but if you’ve got the space, go for it, it’s your room! You’re decorating to please you, not us! 🙂

As for inexpensive mason jars, check out thrift shops for vintage ones and of course garage sales or even freecycle! A case is also not really that expensive, should be about $10… most home hardware/discount dept./grocery stores should have them this time of year.

I went to Big Lots and they had cases of 12 mason jars for about $7.95.  I think some funky orange placemats and a orange and lime patterened seat cushions would give pops of color, and are easy to change out if you get bored.  I like the thought of doing shelves.  Maybe two long shelves, with one hung a little higher then the other.  You could put a couple mason jars on one with some flowers and candles and the other shelf could hold a picture of y’all and a vase in one of the colors from the seat cushions.  I would hang a mirror on the other wall, nothing too big and maybe in the shape of an oval.  Good luck, your room has great bones!
