Hi, everyone! Last time I showed you my new little blue bench, here...
...and how I placed it in front of the wicker settee in the office.
I showed you a 'sneak peek' of some more changes, so now I'll share what happened.
Ever have a 'happy accident'?
I got this drawer unit a couple of years ago in Amish country. It's been in the sun room but I started to change some things around in there, so Keith helped me move it into the office as a temporary holding area until I decided what to do with it. I was even thinking of taking it to the shop to sell.
We just so happened to put it next to the wicker loveseat, and it ended up backwards, by accident.
Hmmm....this got my wheels spinning!
As you can see, the front of the drawers are more of a solid dark green; the back side has these great variations of blues and greens and the patina on the drawers is amazing! (For those of you that love shabby and chippy like me :)
Even though the backs of the drawers don't have pulls or labels, the blues and greens coordinated so nicely with my little pale blue bench that I decided to leave the unit there and keep it backwards! I won't tell if you won't. ;)
Then I remembered an old door that I had bought a few weeks ago. I had stashed it in my basement until I figured out what to do with it.
(This door had me at 'patina'!!)
I hung a little twig wreath on it, propped it on the drawer unit, and found that the colors echo each other perfectly-a match made in heaven!
(The huge no. 3 was purchased from a friend's shop awhile ago...I always love a touch of whimsy! :)
To the top of the drawers I added a wire basket filled with vintage linens...
I just found this one the other day and thought it was fun because of the green color, and also because I live near Akron!
Then I added a pitcher filled with flowers on a pedestal to round out the vignette.
I think the lighter tones of the linens and the pitcher contrast nicely against the painted wood.
Now our office has many touches and shades of blue...
...all thanks to a happy accident!
I appreciate you stopping by!
Have a fantastic week :)
