Nook and Hutch

Hey guys! I wanted to share with you all the nook above our front door and the hutch today. First up is the nook, I have been figuring out what to put up here for a few weeks and yesterday it just came into my head. I used stuff that I already had from other places in my house, the only new thing is the metal piece above the door which I got from Ross for 20 dollars! It's that time of year again when we get to take surveys at my husbands work and they give us giftcards love it!!
I placed two Tuscan pictures that Sandra from Decorating on a Budget sent me almost a year ago as a house warming present. I just love them!! I placed the metal urn with the rooster and greenery on one side and then the hanging fleur de lis on the other. I added a trunk to the middle with greenery. 



Here's a closer look, sorry for the picture its not as clear as I would like it to be but with all of the sun that comes through that area its hard to get a good picture.


Next up is the hutch, I have showed the hutch to you guys a couple times and told you I was toying with the idea of adding iron to the doors instead of getting the glass replaced. Well, I decided I would like the iron best so when I was at Hobby Lobby I came across the iron plaques and thought that it would fit perfectly and it does! 


Here's a closer look, all I did was nail two nails on the inside and hung the piece on the nails. Worked out just like I thought don't ya love it when that happens? lol


I am still playing around with the bottom part and what to display, but for now I have 3 plates, a leopard tray, a fleur de lis urn and a apothecary jar. These are all from Hobby Lobby.


Up top I added a charger plate, 3 fleur de lis vases that I got for Christmas from Kirkland's, the horse and some greenery from the Dollar Tree! To my surprise Dollar Tree has pretty greenery bushes that are small that you can piece together I put 4 up there so for 4 dollars I'd say it looks pretty good! 


Here's a closer look at the vases I just love them! They are in the colors that I love and ofncourse I love the fleur de lis.


Well, that's it for today guys! I will be back soon sorry I haven't been posting too much. Enjoy your weekend, we are going to my grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary party tomorrow WOW that's a long time!! 

Have a great weekend!!

Ally, you've been busy!
I like the iron on the hutch doors. What a great idea. It's even better when you find exactly what you're looking for to make it work. You clever girl! It looks very nice. The pops of red behind the iron is perfect. Way to decorate!

Allyson,
I love it all, but I especially love what you did with the iron pieces on the hutch, WOW!! I never would have imagined how to incorporate those, what a cleaver idea. Can you tell me how you did that? I would love to do that with mine.

I love how you've accessorized everything, it's so pretty and cozy! Thanks for sharing! xo ~Liz

Michelle said...

I love the hutch! GREAT IDEA!

Jane said...

How clever - what a terrific idea to use the metal grilles for door inserts! They look great and your accessorizing if so pretty also. Jane

CAS said...

It all looks so great, Allyson! The vignette above the door is lovely. So many people just ignore wonderful spaces like that because it takes a bit more effort to create some lovelies for it. I'm forever hauling in the tall ladder to do something on a very high spot. What a great idea of adding those iron pieces to your hutch. Totally love it when a plan comes together like that!

Best wishes to your grandparents! Have fun!
