New Shelf Display


Got a shelf put up in the dining room.
I tried to keep it simple!
These are some of my favorite things!
And most of these things were very affordable.
The shelf was $35.
Not sure if I'll add anything else or not!
I'm loving the gray walls.


This head came from Big Lots years ago!
$24.99 was the price tag!
It's the only new thing in my house but I love him!
From a distance he looks like real stone.


Just got this had last weekend!
I like it displayed beside the head.
$27 for this cutie.


Salvage piece of capital.
Bought this in Iowa on my first shopping trip there.
$12 for this beauty.


Small cream colored books were a trade from my sweet friend Karen!
Thanks Karen!


And this lovely picture was a yard sale find!
$10! Yep, $10! 
You don't have to break the bank to get the looks you want.

I love the shelf!!!! It's a piece of art in itself. You've decorated it beautifully and I don't think you need to add anything else. The gray walls are so classy.

Great display! It's simple but impressive! The picture is beautiful.

I absolutely LOVE that architectural shelf on your gray walls! Looks great and the price you paid for it. . .well I have no words except to say, I'm jealous! My son, his wife, and my little Morgan moved out a few weeks ago. So, I have a big room to paint and I've been drawn to the gray or the darker brown with white trim. Can't decide.

Take care, Sue
