Fall Shelf Decor

Fall Shelf Decor
I love the idea of open shelving and wanted to incorporate the look somewhere in my house.  We had an empty wall in the dining room that was begging to be filled.  So I purchased a couple of unfinished shelves from Hobby Lobby, which I primed and painted white.  The next step was to fill the shelves with some of my favorite decor items that had been stored away in cabinets.

FYI- I hung the shelves using my easy method.

Fall Shelf Decor
I wanted to keep things simple and natural.  Natural objects are beautiful and inexpensive.  

My head is spinning with Christmas ideas!

Love how you arranged the shelves Brandi! And the paint job you did as always is perfect! Keep the boxwood indoors for now since they will turn brown with the cold. :-)

Brandi, I love all the hobnail milk glass!! I just recently started collecting it, and so far, I only have two pieces. I'm always on the hunt for more. Your shelves look great! I love the magnolia leaves too.

Brandi,

I love to visit you, I love your creative ideas and amazing sympathy.

Everything was really simple and beautiful. I like that!


About my friend, she decided to move. I'm gonna miss a lot, especially my daughter, because she plays a lot with the daughter of this friend.

Kisses

Karen said...

Beautiful job Brandi! those dried magnolia leaves look so pretty in the milk glass planter. Your tip for hanging shelves is great, I'll be trying that for sure.

Rhonda Hodges said...

Karen Frost said...

Beautiful, Brandi! I love the milk glass and the way you have arranged everything. Love your wall color, too. xo

LeTroy Cooke said...

Beautiful! It's simple, inexpensive, and it looks great.

Teresa said...

Love everything about it, Brandi! I would never have thought to put pretty leaves in a planter. Brilliant, and so pretty. With your gorgeous wall color it's all such a warm and cozy fall display.
p.s. your shelf hanging method beats mine any day of the week. Mine involves eyeballing, lots of spackle and paint, and a few naughty words.
I'll try yours next time.
:)

Stacey said...

Looks like it belongs in Better Homes and a Garden mag! It's very lovely and like I mentioned before, your styling is on point! It contrasts beautifully with that wall colour too.l Love it.

vintage girl at heart said...

Just found you via Pinterest! Love your style... tips... makeovers etc!!!
Plan to spend this rainy Saturday reading through your archives.
I am also a bit jealous that you are at the CL Fair! It is my dream to attend one year with my BFF that lives near Atlanta.

Luci @Bungalow At Home said...

I love the way you incorporated the different textures (green plant, Magnolia leaves and the wreath) to give it interest! And it's perfect with the shiny Milk Glass!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I love the magnolia leaves in the milkglasse vase! We don't have those leaves here in Pa. they sure look neat Brandi! Pinning this to my board "Shelf Styling"♥

Sistergirl said...

beaded milk glass is my favorite, too. love the little pumpkins mixed in.

~~louise~~ said...

Milk glass is a personal favorite of mine, Brandi. I feel inspired to make a shelf for my milk glass fruit bowl who is hiding in the cabinet:)

Your simple approach to decorating the shelves is delightful. Love the touch of Magnolia leaves. And that plate, perfect!

Thank you so much for sharing...

Well done!
