Stages of Styling: Dining Room Built-Ins

Last week I showed you how I re-styled the built-in shelves in my dining room and afterwards, I got to thinking about just how much they've changed.

For example, they currently look like this:

But back in April they looked like this...

In December, they were styled like this for Christmas:

And in October, they were partially styled like this for Halloween:

While I'm definitely not a styling pro, I think my styling has improved a lot especially since this is what the built-ins looked like in December 2009, long before I'd started blogging:

Notice the newly painted yellow ceiling with the gray paint streaks? The patterned fabric built-in backing? The random objects on the shelves (a clock, some frames, a pair of sunglasses)?

I'd say I've come a longgg way from then to now :)


  1. You are so good at shelf styling! I try to channel your genius when I'm doing my own. Big fan of your blog.

  2. Awww, thanks! If you need any styling tips, let me know, I'd be happy to help you :)
