rug in the hizzzouse

LOVE the new rug. I feel like I'm finally getting somewhere with this space. I only need to finish the leaning book shelf, figure out the pillow dilemma and decide on a coffee/cocktail table.
You can see that I still had a bit of a curl when I took this pic but at least you get a visual despite my eagerness to take a pic. I took some pix with my DSLR but didn't find the time last night to upload them so you get a camera pic for now:
I'm thinking about painitng the brown frames on the wall a color that will pop...suggestions?
Lee just got home for a wee bit of R&R and he sent me a text to tell me the house looks amazing. He must like the new rug too!
To keep the room from getting too eclectic I need to add a bit of modern glam and I'm hoping to do all that in my accessories in the finishing touches I mentioned earlier. I keep going back and forth. Here's the top 3 tables I've been eyeball'n...
A mirrored table:
This would be painted on the bottom and topped with a carrera marble:
This is my top choice but I would love it more if it had brass corners. Do you think I can add the hardware??
I think some acrylic is just the ticket I need:
Note the brass corners!
If you see a lucite/clear/acrylic table with brass hardware somewhere online that won't cost me an appendage-PLEASE tell me!
Gosh how awesome it would be to find one on Craigslist...I need a large rectangle, square or circle to fit the space appropriately. I know I could get sets but I'm not a big fan of that. Ideas appreciated!
