Hutch overhaulPosted: February 24, 2011 | |
More haphazard decorating in the dining room. This is how things have been in the hutch for a while now. Last night while I was redoing the art I made a mental note to “curate” and add more light color things. They show up better against the dark wood. So miracle of miracles, you are not going to believe what I found at Value Village today: more light color stuff. I know. I’m a genius. Here it is:
I put that top one down about three times. Truthfully I don’t love it. But the image of it as a watering can in some cheerful little sunroom (or maybe the upstairs bathroom) convinced me not to leave the store without it. I could still return it. . . but it is the perfect height for that shelf. I’m feeling indecisive. Not about the pitcher though. The pitcher I absolutely love and hope to have forever. It’s heavy and old and well-made. The bottom says “Arabia Made in England”.
I also got a small ceramic canister with a lid that I used to replace the pottery jar that’s been holding charging cords in the kitchen. Plus a wool throw.
Here’s the after. I might have to redo this photo tomorrow when there’s daylight again.
I don’t know. It looks about as haphazard as it dd before doesn’t it? Not exactly “curated”. Wouldn’t it be cool to put a light in there and glass shelves and have only a few really beautiful items on display with lots of space around them?
