Ever since I finished painting my bookcases, I have been pulling out my accessories to decorate. After all, most of us would agree that the decorating is the fun part!
Here is a quick peek of some of my blue and white on the shelves…
On the top shelf, I added a large blue and white vase which was a wedding present. The small blue vase was a gift from my mom and the artwork was purchased on our first trip to St. Martin. For the rest of the pieces, I just added various things I have acquired over the years. The plant is new and will most likely die soon if I am the one in charge of keeping it alive!
Here are some various books that fit in with my blue and white colors. The large photo is a picture of the kids being silly in front of the Rum Point sign in Grand Cayman. The little photo is my darling kitty who lived to be almost 20. The vase is a gift from my neighbor. The plate is from an antique shopping trip with friends.
On this shelf we have another plant waiting to die a slow death. The little blue pitcher is from my dear friend who I have known since kindergarten! The candle holder is from Hobby Lobby.
These blue spheres were a steal from Christmas Tree Shoppe at $1.29 a piece!
The big shell is from Homegoods.
This blue and white tea pot was a gift from one of my dearest friends while on a trip to Hong Kong.
And more art from St. Martin,an antique plate and some travel books to remind me that I desperately need another vacation!!!
As you can see, these shelves have come a long way…
Here they are before I painted them Decorator’s White. It was quite a project but I am SO glad I did it! I am still in the process of moving things around so stop by Thursday for the final installment of the One Room Challenge to see how everything turns out.
Have a great week!
