Hey there friends! There is something new coming to the blog today and I am so excited to share it. I have joined my dear friend Amy from @myrustichouse in a fun way to thrift and style shelves with your finds! We recently did a thrifting challenge and set a spending limit of only $20. During that challenge I found tons of thrifting goodies that I could make my shelves style for fall.
Thrifty for fun finds is something that I have always loved to do and now I have found a way to share it with you friends! This past week I heard out to my local Goodwills and picked up some fun pieces. For less than $20 I picked up some vintage amber bottles, a potato smasher, some brass candle stick holders, and a fall ton picture. These adorable finds inspired me to get to styling. I started with the new shaker peg rail in the dining room.
I used some of my finds to layer this shaker peg rail for the fall season. I used the amber bottles to bring in a dark cozy fall color. The brass candle stick holders really add a vintage pop to the top of the shelf and then I used some natural and cream linens to add a soft texture into the space. Finally I finished it off with the vintage picture that I found at the local goodwill
I took some of the vintage finds that I picked up this week and paired them with some vintage tins that I have picked last month. Heading into the kitchen for some more open shelving styling. One of my favorite ways to style open shelving is to layer them up. I love pairing all kinds of vintage tins with glass bottles and dishes. When pairing these pieces together it helps create texture. One advice that I always share with anyone is the layer your shelves with different textures and dimensions. When doing this it will help create a cozy and welcoming space. Even though you are in the kitchen you want to give those shelves a down home feeling.
In this space I went with mustard tone vintage tins and paired them with some of the amber bottles the I picked up at the Goodwill and fall greenery. Once I had those in place I started to layer in the wood tones with the dishes. By doing this it helped fill in the spaces and still give these shelves the kitchen feels. I finally finished them off with the clear vintage bottles for that airy element that I always try to include no matter the season.
I hope sharing these tips of how you can style your open shelving for $2o or less fo the fall season can help you style shelves of your very own. Sometimes the best finds are in the most simple places. Make sure your head over to my friend Amy’s blog at My Rustic House to see all of her tips on styling shelvings. As always thank you for stopping by the blog today and everyday friends, XOXO
