You may remember my diningroom, which has a nice collection of white creamware, odd pieces picked up at yardsales, gifts from blogfriends, and thriftstores. A hodge-podge collection, not priceless at all, but it sure looks good all grouped together. I had collected 3 shelves in my diningroom, two from yardsales and one I bought 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby, so I needed one more shelf to complete my grouping of two shelves on each side of the buffet. I knew if I waited it out, I would find one and sure enough, this turned up at a yardsale recently for $5. Brand new in the box from Hobby Lobby.
So, two coats of white trim paint later, I was ready to hang the new shelf.
Both sides have 2 shelves now
And I do love the all white collection in here.
Like I did on the opposite side, so I'll still have my eyes out for at least one more platter. See those cute bunny napkin rings? Those were a gift from sweet Kim at Daisy Cottage.
I love how all the shelves don't match, but painting them all white unifies them.
I have some ideas on changing out these lampshades to a nice creamy linen with a crisp black monogram. One of my friends just started a monogram business, so she's doing them for me. I think I'd like small drum shades on them, but if I don't find what I want, I'll just cover these in linen.
The new skinnier shelf works perfectly with the wider shelf below it.
And perfect for holding all those treasures. I love being able to grab a vase or bowl when I need it.
I picked up these sweet little birdies when I was in Lakeland awhile back thrifting with Kim and they look right at home with my creamware collection.
