Decorating to make a Statement

Simple, easy and creative recipes and projects delivered straight to your inbox.

Shopping my house is one of the many things I enjoy doing to help make my house a home. It not only is fun to be creative, but it’s also a very frugal way to decorate and change the look of your home. After decorating with some new found antiques, I decided to change my Hoosier cabinet.

While enjoying some of the decorating posts lately, I was inspired by the monochromatic look. It not only makes a statement when you use all one color, it also takes away the guess work, no more wondering if colors match. 

After taking down my Snowmen last week, I “shopped” my home for anything white. My Hoosier cabinet is in my Dining Room, so using mostly dishes worked well. I did add 2 of my antique watering cans to the top, mostly because I just love them, but I also needed some height and they are always a good fit.

Some of the pieces that I found had some flowers or design on one side, so I simply turned them around to hide the design. The round item to the left is an ostrich egg, thinking outside the box here, I liked the shape, size and of course it was white.

On this shelf, I added a dish and 2 small plates that I bought awhile back at Goodwill for .25 cents each.

Here I started with a tea pot, a couple coffee cups and I created a unique look by simply turning a square dish upside down and then placing the other one on top.

On this shelf, I put another tea pot from my collection, a carafe and an antique metal container with a lid.

My new Facebook page is done! I’d love for you to “fan” me!

    My husband recently finished my grandmas’ hoosier cabinet and I just LOVE it. I can remember seeing her make biscuits on it and it brings back such fond memories for me of her. The sifter in it still works. Right now,I have put some things of hers in it… biscuit cutters, rolling pins, vintage lace and crocheting of my great grandmas…I LOVE MY HOOSIER CABINET!
