Decorating Versatility

If I had to pick my style it would be hard. I find myself buying and collecting pieces that fit into so many categories. Sometimes the elements blend well but sometimes I find it best to stick to one theme. I like to start with a base piece of functional furniture that can easily pass from one style to another and from one season to another ~ a good basic stylish piece that can transition with my tastes easily and that’s why I really love my library with doors from Sauder.

I have decorated the piece to celebrate the kids going Back to School, birthdays, autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving and now I’m getting ready to decorate it for Christmas. When I don’t have it decorated for a celebration I like to use it for everyday storage and styling.

One of my recent decor styling choices was French Country. I removed one of the shelves {I love the versatility} to accommodate a glass drying rack which is tall. Next to this I placed a vintage scale with some French linens topped off with a an Atlas Mason Jar filled with antique silver ware.

On the shelf above that I placed a metal basket filled with blue mason jars, a chalkboard and an antique silver cup containing evergreen sprigs from my yard.

My next design style choice theme was Vintage Kitchen. I added the middle shelf back to the library. On the top shelf I placed the lid to my Grandmother’s Cake Plate and a mix-and-match bottom.

On the other shelves I placed white dishes, an old pot and lid, a rolling pin, vintage scale, cow creamer and old-school beater.

Almost every detail of the French Country and Vintage Kitchen decor were items that were either hand me downs or from Thrift and Antique stores. I love quality but don’t like to spend a lot and that’s the beauty of furniture from Sauder ~ the prices are affordable and the style timeless.
