New Location and Styling for the Chippy Cabinet


 Did you know that in just ten minutes you can make a change in your home and create a fresh look? If you are a regular reader then you know that I know this all too well. Welcome to our monthly series, 10 Minute Decorating, where I along with three other fabulous bloggers share some quick ideas to get a new look in your home.

A few weeks ago I shared this chippy cabinet from Decor Steals styled in my sun room.

I wanted to place my fiddle leaf fig back in this spot so I found a new home for the cabinet.

I placed it on top of my sideboard in the great room. The bread boards had moved to the wall in the breakfast room so I needed something here.

I was going to leave it styled like it was in the sun room, but then I figured new spot new display.

I have a large dog painting over the mantel and other dog items so I added my dog trophies to this cabinet.

I added more vintage books.

I kept this silver creamer with the feathers since it works in this space, too.

I kept the coral too and the sea fans for texture and a hint of summer to come.

I swapped the clear siphon bottle with this green one.

I'm liking the new location.

  7. What are great idea, 10 minute decorating! Typically when I "get crazy" as my husband calls it, things are hauled all over the house and new rooms are created. Typically I do this when he is out of town and come home to a big SUPRISE!

    Have a great day Kim!
