I am here again with round 3 of the Shop Your House Challenge. If you are new to this challenge, for 3 months myself and 5 other bloggers:
We will shop our houses to create a new feel to our spaces using only the items we already have in our homes.
I have loved this challenge, our family room has seemed to be the collection spot for all the left over items I can’t bring myself to get rid of. It has been so good to rearrange and make these items really come to life. If you remember from last month I tackled the sitting corner. So this month I moved on to the chest in the other corner.
This chest is one of my favorite refinishes ever, I had refinished it with the intention of selling it but once I finished it I couldn’t let it go. I love it in this little corner but I wanted to add a little character to the top to make it stand out.
I collected random items from around my house and clumped them all together! I love the height the candlesticks bring in. I brought in texture with my shutter and I added a bit of spring with the nests and fresh hydrangeas. To offset the elegance of the gold I used a galvanized bucket for my flowers and brought in this metal vintage scale to create a rustic elegant feel to this vignette.
I do love the look of tone on tone but I always like to bring in little pops of color. To do that I added this duck egg blue candlestick to match the eggs. I am so pleased with how this turned out I think I will just leave everything right where it is for awhile!!
