Hi, everyone! In my last post here, I showed you how we recently painted our office a softer color, and gave it a new look. You can see the before pics here-it's quite a drastic change, I think! These next pictures are of the other side of the room, across from the table and chair that I showed you last time. I'm adding a disclaimer, because I've changed this wall around so many times, I'm not sure if it's going to stay this way or not. I moved in the shoe rack that used to be in the hallway, and I think I like it (for now!). I've also changed the items on the shelves around a million times, so you might notice a few differences in the 'styling', but you'll get the basic idea!
You can read about the story behind this rustic shelving unit here. (It's a good one-at least I think so :) I recently got this trophy cup at a shop in Cleveland, and it's extra special because it has 1967 engraved on it, which is my birth year!
My dad made this tealite candle holder out of an old log (one for me and one for my mom.) I love it!
I grouped some pretty brushes into a G. Wolff & Co. pot, and added an old license plate and my 2 Dundee jars.
I was gonna sell these old bottles, then thought they'd be cute gathered on this little tray. I still love a touch of industrial, so I brought in these metal stamps and wooden molds. I love their rustic charm!
On the bottom of the shelves I placed 2 market baskets that I've had. I got the old store price tags on Etsy-I thought they were fun!
To the left of the shelves I put my old ladder with a canvas bucket filled with hydrangeas hanging from it (I have to admit that I 'borrowed' this idea from Faded Charm, and I have the picture pinned here.) I also added 2 big wicker baskets which are filled with books.
I topped the pair of baskets with a silver tray and some old bank bags.
So this is now the view of the wall to the left when you walk into our office from the hallway...you can just barely see the very edge of our desk that's to the right of the shelves (see that white thing?) That's where our computer is and where I blog from, but it's just too messy to show right now! Sorry, that's for another time. :)
And here's the view straight ahead when you walk in from the other doorway on the opposite corner (confusing I know, but this little room has a weird configuration...2 ends are built in bookshelves but there's also a doorway at each end.)
Once again, the new look on the opposite wall...
And here you can see a little bit out into the hallway, where my huge coat rack and stack of suitcases are...
Well, I was also gonna show you my bookshelves on the other side of the office, but this post got a little longer than I intended! So I'll save that for next time. Until then, have a fantastic day! I'm linking to these wonderful blogs:
