As we continue to decorate our new home, I've had fun pulling together pieces that are ours and pieces that were the previous owners', making some unique pairings.
The photo below is from our master bedroom, just as you walk in the door. The previous owners had a charming "Good Morning" framed embroidery piece that I knew I just had to keep and use. I got the rusty, metal shelf from a thrift store in Mason City awhile back. The cheese grater (yes, that's a cheese grater!) and small milk bottle were from the previous owners. And finally, the mason jars and artificial flowers were items I had left over from centerpieces at past events I planned.
I wanted wall decor for our bedroom that was welcoming, simple, and carried a touch of "country." I feel like I accomplished what I was aiming for, all at no cost, just thinking creatively about the items we already had!
