Several years ago a printer took up residence in my kitchen. It was ugly, but oh-so-convenient. No, I didn’t want to look at it in the kitchen, but I like to work at the kitchen table so having it there meant not having to run to the other side of the house several times a day. Plus, there was no room for it in my over-crowded office because it is the biggest printer ever.
This weekend, the new office furniture went in and the first thing I did was to evict that printer from the kitchen. Goodbye and good riddance!
Now I get to enjoy our beautiful marble-top sideboard. And as a side benefit that also means I get to decorate it!
I set out to swap high-tech, clunky necessity for some rustic charm combining some new pieces from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart with some pieces I already owned. You would be amazed how many rustic pieces you can find at Walmart that look high-end with bargain price tags. It made decorating my space affordable.
I love the simplicity of this BHG for Walmart bronzed lamp, yes it is bronzed metal, not wood. Although next to the wooded candlestick holder it looks wood. Paired with a small burlap drum shade also from BHG for Walmart it gives off a nice warm glow with great texture.
I added a personal touch by framing one of my favorite sayings, “Live Often, Laugh Much, Love Always” in a charming wood frame with metal brackets. I couldn’t find this frame online, but it is available at Walmart from Better Homes and Gardens.
The candle display in the middle of the table has become a staple in my house since I purchased it for a fall tablescape a year ago. I love it because I change out the filler in the dish seasonally. In December, I filled it with mini ornaments. Right now, I am loving the corks, but I am sure I will swap them out soon. The three-piece pedestal hurricane is still available at Walmart by Better Homes and Gardens.
The final touch is the BHG for Walmart pocket watch clock. Once I actually put batteries in it, it will be perfect. (Notice the books in the background, some of my childhood favorites!)
