Yes it does. There are too many photos on the top shelf. A couple with some other cool things to break the up a bit would help. The other shelves could handle on photo each and 2 other items of different sizes. Groups of 3 tend to look best.

Do you think that I get the pictures above and lower them to other areas?
would that type of ornaments go you well? Thanks!

Personally, I would move your plate collection up to the top shelf (and add at least three more). I would then find three large vases of a similar shape or colour and place them down the middle). I realize it is not sentimental (unless you take a year to find these things and enjoy the process) but it will have more elegance.
Your family pictures should go on a table dedicated to your photos - they are special and should be lower and closer (like on a side table by a sofa with a table light)

you're right, what happens is that I have multiple frames with family photos that to be honest not is where to put them... There are so many that I lose.
I have three spaces below the shelf, which could stand there?
Thanks for the Photos!

Lots of people make a hallway gallery of their family photos. That way they have space to display and add more later. Then you have a clean slate for a more polished look in your main living area.

Hi pao
I was thinking of the three large vases that fill up the space - or sculptures or anything you like - so long as they tie in together via colour or form. In the examples I posted, the first features different vases; the second features different asian objects but all in blue and grey.

is it possible that some of the photos (not all) passes them to one of the empty spaces below? will they be good? or maybe in this furniture you should not put any picture?
Thank you for your valuable help :)

If you wanted you could put 1 large and two smaller on the middle shelf. But if you want to help the furniture - I would suggest you moved the photos to another place.

Could you change out the glass in the doors (is it glass or is there a kind of film behind it)?

OK, I'll see how it looks if I just put a couple of photos to the middle.
glass are doors, recently changed because they make with the Cabinet of the tv.

I understand - then you have a linkage.
For your own satisfaction, try removing everything from your cabinet and then try placing your photos and other objects in different ways. Step back and sit down and look at it for a while. See if it 'works'. If not, remove everything and start again... All the best for this project.

Hi there Pao
I am looking at the image you posted with the frames on the top box. I dont feel it works.
Try this:
Take your plates and the south american dolls - and place them along the top - you have some colours that work together as a theme.
On the top box place the three metallic vase (1 tall, 1 medium and the one with the yellow flowers together as a group)
Next box - place your three silver pictures
Below place the box on the very top shelf on a silver tray.
Take a photo and post
All the best

Getting there. I think the top works (just build up your plate collection), can you move the photos down to the bottom box, the silver vases to the middle and the wooden box where the silver vases were - trying to get the aesthetics right! Thanks

HI Pao
Coming along
First remove the picture on the top part. You need to be strict about sticking to one theme. Move the white vase on the box where the doll is. Move the doll to the other side: So you have a series of ceramics from tallest to smallest from the left side and then the doll on is own on the right side (please find more plates eventually)
Keep the box on its own centered on the top box
Middle box push the vases closer together
Bottom, add the picture on the top shelf in front of the others on the bottom box.

Hi pao
The box and the photo just do not work. Leave it on its own until you find something better to place in there.
The photos: The largest photo is at the back, the landscape photo next and the small photo in front. Move the tall photo as far to the back, the landscape close to it, and the other two as far forward as possible. If it is too much remove one small picture

Put the plates together on the diagonal on one side middle shelf, candlestick holders on the next upper shelf. Maybe put one of those pic frames on the same shelf as the candles. It depends. Try it out. Greens are good natural colors. you might want to change the hardware too for a little more personality. ...a more ornate pull and knob. Good Luck.

What about getting rid of the bottom middle door? You want to create a focal point but, yet keep the eye so that it's not moving around too much. I'm distracted by the items in the frosted glass cabinets. Use some wicker baskets?

I would remove the bottom doors and place wicker baskets. You need to create a flow, a point of interest where eye will flow in a natural way. There's too much going that's not creating a flow.... my eye doesn't know where or when to stop. One person said update the knobs, or spray paint them. Is this piece a built in? And can you put items on the top shelf?

This furniture is made of wood, and as you say it is remodeled because he didn't have a way...before apparently (came with the property) was for the tv...
at the top are the plates and travel items
could put the baskets that say within the cabinets with the things that are in there.
What do you think?

Hello, would you consider painting the complete unit cream altogether & remove all the photo frames, they just don't look right visually, no matter where you arrange them on the unit, so I would consider re-homing them, also a previous poster mentioned baskets, I would actually get some for inside those frosted doors, as regards the rest of the shelves, I think one item per shelf is plenty, sometimes "less is more" and your plates will look a lot nicer and be appreciated more if they have their own space.

I see you refinished it. The first photo you posted is much better quality. It looks very nice. the items you have are dated. Put more updated accessories and you'll be fine. Like I said before, put some green hanging vines and put it in the vessel/vase and put on the highest shelf....top of unit.

Would you consider taking everything off unit & just put the nice white & brown vase in the middle of the top shelf with just one plate on either side, nothing else, then on the next shelf down put the red doll ornament, choose one photo for next shelf down, perhaps the big portrait photo (children & a bike) & then on final bottom shelf just put the brown/silver cup/trophy on its own & just put the other bits away, & get some plain baskets inside the glass doors. I think that might be a nice look.
