The Sideboard With Five Personalities
Here's another decorating re-run from 2008. Hope you enjoy it!
I love playing house. Few things are more satisfying than ripping apart one tablescape and creating a new one.When we moved in, I made a silk arrangement for the sideboard. Then I called it a day.
Next, I made a fall arrangement--very traditional, and it worked with my Noah's Ark Syndrome--the uncontrollable urge to decorate in twos.
I don't have a hutch or china cabinet, and I missed seeing my dishes.[Note: Now I do! I just have to move it to my house!] So I used them in a vignette. This is my favorite. I love anything with dogs.
Here's an early spring look with Ironstone and white pottery:
I put together tulips and green apples when I posted the room on RMS.
Here are some Gollumy Bloopers:
I couldn't stop adding stuff. :-) Had a wonderful time, though.
I tried everything on the wall beside the sideboard, and it only looked crowded. So Mr. Tom hung the art. I'm looking for a low chest to put under it.
I'm prowling for new ideas.I like the way this is slightly off center. It's fresh and striking. The parrot tulips are gorgeous.
Three vases on the dining table look great. This fall, I'm planting tulips in Mr. Gollum's garden.
