How I Style Shelves using Vintage Items

I wanted to pop in and share how I styled my dining room shelves using vintage items and my favorite formula for decorating. Awhile back I shared this office area of our basement. In the post I shared the formula I use when putting together most areas of our home. Colorful vintage item(s) + a white or neutral item(s) + a wood tone item(s) I also tend to put together an area by adding the items in groups of three.

DIY Faux Mercury Glass Bottles

I also spent a few days in January getting the rest of my Christmas decor put away and "quieting" the surfaces in our home. As much as I enjoy decorating for the Holidays I always love the freshness of our home after things are put away following the Holidays. I keep a few winter decor items out here and there, but try to keep the decor mostly simple. I chose to keep my faux mercury glass bottles out as part of my Winter decor and thought it would be fun to share how I made them.
