Hope you all had a great weekend! In my last post I showed you the built-in bookcases on one side of our office, and how I've styled (and restyled) them. Now I'm showing you the other side of the room.
Again, I just gathered together some of my favorite 'quirky' items and played around with different ways to display them.
The little silver teapot came from the 'surprise' flea market in Tucson. I love the intricate detail and monogram, plus it was such a fantastic bargain I couldn't pass it up! I added a couple of flowers made out of old patterns to it.
I scored this old chippy scale at the local flea market a couple of years ago-love the patina! It's SO heavy, and one of my favorite finds.
This small silver creamer is another unbelievable bargain that I got in Arizona! It came from a fun shop in Phoenix, and I just added some paper ephemera to jazz it up a little.
I love the look of old battery jars. I had never come across one before, so I was excited when I found this at a local antique store. I filled it with little vintage books and a faux birds nest.
This rustic wooden 'box' holds some paperwork and office supplies. I tried to add at least a little practicality!
I kept the top shelves the same with several clear magazine holders (which are organizing just a fraction of my magazines!) and my collection of locker baskets going the whole way across.
Here is a view of the whole wall and the doorway into the front hall.
There you have it! You've now seen all the newly styled office bookcases. Like I said before, they may not stay that way for long because I'm constantly tweaking them but for now this room is good to go!
Thanks so much for stopping, and have a wonderful day!
