Things have been a bit more chaotic around here than usual.
I just finished up a desk for a client and have been working on a giant china hutch. Topher had been out of town for a few days, and I’ve been doing a bit of redecorating upstairs and downstairs. I realized I hadn’t shown you my little Valentine’s Day vignette I a did a few weeks back, and since V-Day is on Saturday, I figure it’s now or never.
I’m trying to stick with my plan of not spending money on my decor this year and using what I already have. I talked about this more in my How To Shop Your Home post.
The spot I chose to make over was my vintage desk, which is right beside my mantel. While going through my
hoard treasures in the storage room, I found this mirror I forgot I had (shocking I know). I found it at a yard sale last summer for $6. And for a pop of color, I threw in some artificial flowers that I have had for a while in a vintage, trophyish thing.
I pulled out two vintage alarm clocks I had in storage, along with some old books and these two white finials.
On the bottom I grabbed a scarf out of my closet, as well as a faux concrete bust and an old valentine figurine … that also came from a yardsale.
I filled my three tiered tray with all of my pink red and silver christmas ornaments. I liked the little pops of pink red and none of these pieces cost me a dime!
Love it! has all the elements I love- tarnished silver, vintage pieces (love that figurine!!!), architectural elements and free!!
Beautiful! I LOVE that desk!!
