Calm, Neutral and De-Cluttered in the China Cabinet



Vintage, Neutral Vignettes for the China Cabinet www.organizedclutterqueen.blogspot.com
Today I finished re-decorating, and de-cluttering my antique china cabinet.  I had given you a sneak peek of the top two shelves, that are filled with white ironstone, a typewriter and my camera collection.  Now for the rest!

The third shelf has jars with buttons and thread, a cloth sewing tape measure, books, a silver plate tray and vintage white pottery.

The neutrals work well with the dark wood stain.

  3. It looks great. I like the neutral theme and the clever way you displayed the foreign coins. Coins and stamps are like little works of art. I find them fascinating!

  5. I like this look. The white is very calm.
    I don't have a lot of white to put inside mine -mostly colored items, so I'm thinking if putting some white paper on the back wall of mine to off set and brighten the inside.
    Maybe I'll get it done and get back into the swing of blogging :)
    I can't wait to see all that you're doing in your room.
