China Cabinet Vignette

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope your week is getting off to a great start. 
 I wanted to show you my best thrifty find to date.  I found this large tole painted
(I think?) tray at Goodwill one day for $1!!!!  It is rusted in spots, the edges are beat up but I thought it was pretty cool looking.  My original intention was to make the tray into a chalkboard.  Once I got it home I put it in a few places to get a feel of the size and I knew it would not be touched!  I loved the pheasants, the folksy type flowers & grapes and how the black tied the frames surrounding the china cabinet.




My Pottery Barn knock offs found a good home here.

Here is the big picture of what I see from the kitchen. 
I think those brown chairs need to be green?  What do you think??
