Just monkey'in around ... decorating with a cute vintagey organ-grinder monkey table http://bit.ly/UNxwq5
A fun way to get your Martha Stewart on is with a theme - there are few things (and rooms) that can't be improved with a theme.
Starting with monkeys. These organ-grinder monkeys of yore, usually attired in a vest & festive fez hat, were chosen by buskers because they had thumbs and could carry the tip cup. And the tips actually provided the entertainers with a livelihood. People gave because prior to the invention of the phonograph, the organ grinder was one of the few sources of music available to the poorer classes.
And me? I'm simply a sucker for anything dressed up in a vest & a fez.
