Q: So, a relative recently bought me this brown sideboard. I love it, however the rest of my living room has a color scheme which consists of blacks, greys, and whites! Please help! As it was bought for me I can't really sell it...

Is there any way that I can make it look right in this room, without having to paint it? Also, regarding the fireplace pictured, I was planning on getting the wood part painted white- thoughts? Please also note that this room isn't completely finished yet. Thanks. -Sent by Sonya

Editor: I chose this question because I feel like we've all been there- I know I certainly have. You have or acquire a piece that you love, but it just doesn't seem to go. How can Sonya make this work? I have faith that you'll all come up with fabulous answers, but just in case, I'd be more than willing to take that gorgeous sideboard off your hands, Sonya! Of course, it doesn't match any of the wood in my house...
