"Forgotten Corners"......

Thursday, July 22, 2010

There are tiny "forgotten corners" in all our homes.....I affectionately call them "nooks & crannies"......& I will admit I love them!......When left alone, these crannies can make a house appear somewhat neglected, but when addressed, these same spaces can add a bit of enchantment to your home!
Here at our house, I have such an area, at the back of our living room, right before you step out on the patio. The space is very small & narrow....however when dealing with a small rental house, you want to make sure each & every space is working for you!....& so I decided to spruce this one up!
I added a small, dark wood, storage unit from Target & then just dressed it out!....
* 1-pretty lamp
* 1- colonial lantern & candle
*
1- white ironstone pitcher, filled with bright & lovely sunflowers
* 1-thrift store mirror, 1 pair of vintage flower prints w/o frames & one charming hook with my garden hat hanging from it.....

This little corner turned out just the way I wanted!...an area to keep all out outdoor/patio items, like towels, flip-flops, a few toys, magazines & snacks,.... all tucked away in the cubbies,.... while the top of the can be decorated like an expensive piece of furniture,....
seasonal, fresh & charming!


Wishing you a wonderful weekend!.........
Your friend, Heidi XO
