Decor Steals Design Ingenuity Event.....Chippy Cabinet

2.26.2015

Y'all know I love worn painted pieces and I love to collect so when I was sent this super cute cabinet from Decor Steals it was a win win and I couldn't wait to decorate it. First I had to figure out where I was going to use it. I had thought about using it in the guest room, but once I saw the size of it I knew I needed a different location.

The best spot for it seemed to be the sun room. This cabinet has hangers on the back to hang on a wall, but my home doesn't have many walls with all the windows and openings.

I placed the cabinet on the drop leaf table in place of the olive bucket that held a fiddle leaf fig tree.

I started shopping the house and filled it with little things I collect. I think a cabinet like this is good for showcasing those treasures.

I placed a sea fan in the back for texture and then added old books and bottles on the bottom shelf.

This vintage monogrammed silver creamer is a favorite and I filled it with feathers I purchased on my trip to Tybee last weekend. I didn't know I would be using them in this cabinet while I was buying them, but they fit so perfectly.

The top shelf also displays a sea fan.

Old books and coral.



Old siphon bottle and a pair of vintage binoculars.

The doors close, but I'm keeping them open.



I bought these balls (forgot what they were called) at The Paris Market in Savannah for a dollar each and placed them in this old ironstone food mold. They make a great filler.



Here I have already swapped out the food mold for another ironstone bowl. I'm loving this cabinet in place of the olive bucket and tree.


 The cabinet is today's DAILY STEAL and I bet they sell quickly!
It can be used in many different ways. If I had the space I would hang it in a bathroom to hold toiletries and decorative items.
 Tell me how you would you use it?

Be sure to check out my friend Yvonne of Stone Gable's idea for this cabinet, too for another great way to style it.

Post Edit: Well, y'all certainly liked this cabinet! I'm afraid they are already SOLD OUT, but no worries more have been ordered and they will be back in April!

  5. Wow, that is gorgeous! Is it weird that I drooled over the hardware on the cabinet? I can't wait to go to The Paris Market in Savannah soon!

  9. Kim, could you please tell us how to decorate around a huge, flat screen TV? I have mine sitting on a console with an iron piece hanging above it and two magnolia wreaths flanking each side. It seems kind of boring, but I don't want to overdecorate to compensate for the big black rectangle that just sits there while we're not watching it. Help please! Thanks, Sharon White (qstylethebook.com)

    1. Sarahjowhite, I was trying to find you a link to a gallery wall around a tv on a console. A friend of mine had done a gallery wall of florals around hers and it looked so good. She hung a couple rows of probably 8 x 10 framed prints across the top of the tv and them a double row down each side. Wish I had the photo to show you. I don't have a huge tv to decorate around so not sure of other ideas.

  11. Love the cabinet and how you made it fit into your space. The treasures inside are lovely!

  12. That cabinet is gorgeous, Kim! You did it justice with the things you placed inside because it all looks beautiful together. The photos are wonderful and I love the shot of the cabinet with those snappy red checkered curtains in the background! The fruit in the ironstone bowl look a lot like what we called persimmons when I was growing up near Savannah, GA. They grew on small trees(bushes) and we picked and ate them after they turned a reddish-brown color. To eat them when green was a BIG mistake(LOL)! I really enjoyed your lovely post!

  13. Lynn, these had a French name on the display like pincot balls or something like that. They came in green, red and yellow. They are hard and crack when you drop one like I did.

  25. What a great looking "old" piece, Kim. I have seen their stuff and wondered what the quality of it was like. i would probably use this cabinet in a bathroom. It is really great...and...like you...I don't have a lot of walls. We have LOTS of windows. xo Diana
