My Own Little Corner: Book Bundle Decor Revisited

"In my own little corner, in my own little chair"....does anyone else remember that song from Cinderella?  Well, it's what I think of when I look at this corner of my family room.  Whenever I look at it I just can't help but smile.

Pin It


Way back when, I knocked off Pottery Barn's book bundles.  That post is still one of my most viewed {HERE}

I've always wanted to make more.  Enter my vintage, chippy, shabby wire plant stand.  I was so happy when I lugged it home from a farmhouse sale {HERE}, but I was never quite sure what I was going to do with it.  Sound familiar?  Let's just say that it was looking mighty lonely while I decided.  Not anymore.


It holds all my shabby, coverless volumes beautifully.



I think it looks pretty good in it's new spot, hanging out with my burlap storage ottoman {how-to HERE}, Ballard Designs side table knock-off {how-to HERE} and my Pier 1 lace lampshade knock-off {how to HERE}.  I get a warm vibe from the mix, and I'm liking that just fine.



Can't go wrong with a bit of chippy, shabby I always say.  And burlap doesn't hurt, either.

Well, looks like our snow is beginning to melt and we're looking forward to a fairly warm weekend.  Happy {almost} spring to you all.

xoxo

This is gorgeous! I love that little corner! Especially the doily on the burlap table cloth!

That is a perfect spot for it and it's looking so good with your creative books bundles. Buying something without a plan happens to me every time.

Hi Kathy , In my own little corner in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
and the world will open its arms to me.

I love that Cinderella too. Isn't it fun to change things up, and get a whole new look? So many great ideas in one little corner. Take care. Love, Penny

I love this look! Someday I hope to find a similar plant stand. Great collection of shabby books too : )
