BEFORE AND AFTER PART 3




These are the last few pictures of my recent install.   [see part 1 here and part 2 here ] As I said before she was a delightful client and I loved working on her gorgeous home.

These next pictures are of some open shelves.  I didn't try and re-invent the wheel here using mainly what she already had.....

Before

After

Let's break it down with a few closeups.

Before

I love how they added these reclaimed shelves to this area....tying in with the beams in the family room.

After

After a little rearranging I added the blue pitcher on the top shelf, the blue frame [which she had], and some small bottles of Pellegrino.  I repurposed the small lamp from the den [it was in-between the 2 chairs] and found the chalk board from World Market.



 
  A few artichokes in a wooden bowl [also WM],  some pretty dishtowels folded in her own wooden box and her own canisters.

Before

After

 A little rearranging..... only adding the 2 frames [Target] on the top shelf, a bark covered vase for the plant [it was yellow before] and a couple of baskets on the bottom shelf.  

That became a good spot to group all the decanters.


And that is the end.  

No part 4.

I got some good milage out of that one huh?
Now all I have are plans out there with decisions to be made.  It might be a while before I can put another finished project on here :(

A few people wanted to know what the paint color was and it is SW Analytical Gray.  Which brings me to another point.  

If you are "anonymous" and you ask a question....well you have a much better chance of getting an answer if you leave an email address....just sayin. 

This girls gotta go.....hair appointment!

Stay warm today if you are in the "polar vortex" area!

Sha....burr......

This further solidifies that I want to rip that one set of cabinets out of our kitchen and put real open shelving.... Thanks for that.

I never would have thought to put that lamp there. Smart. It's functional and looks good too!

Love the rearrangements - it looks so much cleaner. I love the pop of color in the vases and tea towels. So adorable.

Lamps on countertops is the next big trend. Love their cabinets and planking!

Just beautiful Sherry! Love the shelves in the kitchen. Just wondering if you knew what color the cabinets are painted? I read the color you put in this post but I assumed that was the wall color?
Thanks.

You really need to hire yourself out to magazines as a stylist...in your free time;) You are SO good! xo. stay warm.

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I love this house - so pretty. Your styling of it seems so effortless, but I'm sure it wasn't - wish I could make my shelves look like that! You are the master!

Alysa said...

You have such a great eye! You kept me coming back for more and more.. It was worth the wait:)

Connie Dolin said...

I love how you repurpose things the homeowner already has. You shop first in the home and I know your clients must appreciate that. You are a genius at styling shelves and bookcases. Love it!!

First I will start with an apology for the lack of an email address. I assumed that the question would be answered in the comments section. Second, I want to say how much I love your blog. Your work is right up my alley and always looks amazing. Now for another question regarding this room...Do you know where the clients got their bookshelf and rustic open shelving? Thanks in advance and again I apologize.

Love the pops of color on the open shelving...love the artichokes. They're such a work of art, I think! Also really am loving the bookcase and its' rustic charm. Ok, I will now quit using the word "love!" HA!

Bethany DeVore said...

Her Kitchen was beautiful to begin with but your styling really puts it over the top!

Carol@6WilsonBlog.com said...

Those shelves really are perfection with the beams, and the color pops you added are beautiful. As. always.

Grey and Scout said...

Perfect styling goes a long way!

Holly said...

Again, it was really good before but once you worked your magic well now it's spectacular. You have this awesome way of styling where your eye just keeps moving around so the new pretty items on the countertop prevent my eye from stopping on the (before) empty top - you've got it Sherry and I hope you continue to share your projects with us as slow or as quick as those decisions are made.

I was saying I wish you would pimp yourself out for internet shelf styling. I would pay a King's Ransom. My den book shelves were the reason I drank in Dec. & January. February am drinking over my shelves in my dining room..... Pleeezzzzzzzzzzzzzz set up a shelf styling shop! We send pictures of before. We pay you, you send us ideas of using our stuff & new stuff you tell us where to buy... Brilliant I say. Call your new business ~ Shashelfie....
