A few months ago my Gram passed away. I haven’t really mentioned it much – if at all – but those who are regular readers probably noticed that there were a few long stretches of little to no posting.
Christmas was always a huge holiday at my grandparents’ house, and I can vividly remember just how she had it decorated every year. After she passed, a few of those pieces came to me. I don’t have quite the same setup she did and so I’ve been trying to figure out where to display them.
If you remember a couple of months ago I shared with you that I had ordered a dresser from Sauder. Up until just recently we’ve been using it for it’s intended purpose – clothes – plus setting the bedroom TV on top of it. But we did some remodeling in there and moved the dresser to a different wall and the TV came off. That left me with a large, empty area – and I knew just what to put there.
I’m still not 100% sure just what I want to do with the space. Not everything is specific to Christmas; there are a few non-holiday serving pieces also. Mix-and-match is still kind of “in” so I started by arranging them all together across the dresser.
While I thought it looked okay, I also wanted to see what it would look like with just the Christmas pieces. So I cleared it off and started over. I did one grouping – a vase, cup and saucer, creamer, bell, etc. – that were all the same pattern. And then I did a second small grouping with a little light-up Christmas igloo that my Gram had made paired with a photo of my grandparents from a few years ago.
I think the dresser would also look nice against the living room wall leading into the hall, where we could use it like a sideboard. Store things like seasonal blankets and extra pillows in the drawers, and top it with a few framed photos. With as versatile as Sauder furniture is, you’ll be able to style a single piece in a number of different ways.
Where would you place a piece of Sauder furniture?
