Credenza Decor

Since I finished this credenza a few months ago, it has seen just about every accessory in our house cycle over it. And by George, I think I’ve finally got it!

The hubby and I recently emptied a (really cheap) wine jug, and I thought, just for kicks, I’d see how it looked on the credenza. Lo and behold, it was just what I needed. The sea fan I got as a souvenir ($5!) on our winter beach trip needed a home, and I love how it looks in the jug.

The other star players are my owl (whom you may recognize from his on-camera debut in my Christmas video), and the gold lamp that took about five years to come together. (I got the base for $8 from Goodwill eons ago, and found the gold Anthropologie shade at Salvation Army recently. If it looks familiar, that’s because I scored two silver ones along with it, for our bedroom.)

This is a perfect example of why you should snatch up little chotchkes as you find them… otherwise how are you ever going to arrange your credenza? (For a great article on The Art of Display, head over to Chez Larsson.)

    Let’s not forget the awesome painting above the credenza. Amy painted that, and it’s my favorite part of the whole room.

    • Amy says:

      Ladies and gentleman, this is why I love him! I got tired of that painting long ago (hence no reference), but he still likes it.:) Thanks, babe!

        No kidding! That was my initial reaction, “What a freaking awesome painting!!!” Way to go, Amy! I may need to plagiarize that since red’s my signature color so I must always find more ways to add it to my decor… :o)

        • Amy says:

          I hear you on red… I keep waiting to tire of it, but I never do. And you have my full permission to plagiarize. (I like to call it “inspiration.”)

            I think it all started with getting the idea in my head that I wanted a red couch. It’s been my fav color ever since. Most of my home is red, lime green, and chocolate brown.

    Hey girl! Love the new look. I think you spyed into my house and stole my blue wall color and red poppies wall print. Ha! Love it all

    • Amy says:

      Oh? I want to see! I love light blue as a “neutral,” and can’t go wrong with red poppies! I have a little print I snagged at the thrift store in our bedroom, too.

  4. Kristina W says:

    Oops was never trying to NOT point out the amazing painting. I love ALL Of Amy’s originals, the owl just cracks me up thats all. 🙂

  5. Looks great! Love the color.

    Where on earth did you get that beautiful poppy print?! I NEED it.

    • Amy says:

      Haha…Is it terrible to say you can have it? I actually painted it years ago, and you know how you’re always most critical of your own work?;) I think you should pick up a brush and give it a go!!
