Open shelving.....is it for everyone? NO Is it for me, it can be.....as long as I use a few styling tricks that I have up my sleeve !
When I went back and saw how the cabinet looked this time last year, I was amazed at how much clutter I had become comfortable with over the years. Look at all that stuff on the shelves!
I edited, purged, organized, and took down the curtains. I am so pleased with the fresh new look!
I smile every time I pass this sign in the hallway,,,,,which is many times a day since the laundry room, bathrooms, and bedrooms are there.
The shelves are filled with my collection of pretty tablecloths, napkins and other tablescape items that I use when we entertain.
I have a few of my napking rings displayed on the shelves but the rest of them are out of sight in the drawers below the shelves.
The tea cup napkin rings were a gift so they are probably my favorite ones.
I added a few pumpkins to the shelves to give a touch of fall The pumpkins are some I made years ago using a wedding gown that I picked up at a yard sale. It had some stains, but there was enough usable fabric to make quite a few pumpkins.
I have a couple of my napkin rings displayed on a teeny tiny 2 tiered stand that I found recently at Hobby Lobby.
Thought you guys might like a peek into the drawers filled with napkin rings and place card holders......
I repurposed some pitchers to house cloth napkins
I sat the basket of pumpkins on the floor under the table, not sure I like it there so it will probably go back out to the studio.
No matter what...and tis looks elegant..you have magic touch!ReplyDelete
I think that open shelving is such a nice way to display a few items people might not otherwise see too. It looks great.ReplyDelete
I love the tea cup napkin rings. I also love the crown napkin holder. You have so many cute things!ReplyDelete
Everything looks so wonderful and clean. The rose wreath is such a nice touch. Did you make it or buy it? I know you have a large floral collection, which I love.ReplyDelete
Totally lovely Penny...so much storage and its fun to see your lovely fabric pieces. Lots of napkin rings and table stuff---great for a large family. Always enjoy your posts, SandiReplyDelete
I love your open linen shelves. Everything looks so pretty especially with the milk glass baskets.ReplyDelete
The old wedding dress turned into pumpkins is a very unique and cleaver idea. They would make nice little thank gifts for guests or plate decorations for a luncheon.
Thanks for your great ideas.
Penny, Just lovely what you do with the hall closets and the lightening!!ReplyDelete
I love to decorate but use the Autumn colors of Orange, red and yellow. Which I live at this time of the year.
But keep true the white and pink all year long.
Did you study interior decorating?
You truly have a gift!!🌹❤🌹 God Bless you!!!
What a fabulous way to store all of your tablescape items instead of cramming them into a linen closet like I do. :-O It looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
