I have had this secretary for many years. It is antique and came from a family member on my husbands side of the family. A couple of years ago, I painted it grey. Don't worry it was never made of high quality wood or anything. It was just old! Anyway, I've enjoyed changing it up from time to time, just like I do my mantel. It is a focal point in my sitting room, so I'm careful to keep it "styled".
I decided to introduce a touch of blue to it.
So, I brought up my blue and white plates from the basement. They have made appearances before in my kitchen and foyer. Nothing unusual with that!
I hung them from some simple white ribbon on each door. I used to have white plates hung here.
I also added some of my blue and white grain sacks to the desk part. I thought it would make a great place to display them.
I added a lined wire basket underneath too.
I still have my old metal ceiling tin propped up above it too.
So there she is! All prettied up with some old books, crowns, white flowers and vintage grain sacks.
Do you have a favorite piece that you like to "style"?
Thanks for stopping by!
