      Thanks, Cecilia!

  3. Oh, you knocked this out of the park!! You had the perfect spot for it and I was completely swooning over your bottles and re-made tool tote. Love, love, love!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks! This was a fun one, cuz’ it was right in my sweet spot of style:)

  4. I always enjoy it when people do a display like this on their shelves–it tells me the story of who you and your family are. And, I’m always so envious of your antique glass lamp shades! WANT!! All of you did a beautiful job of sourcing everything from what you have, since we can’t go out and look through sales or stores. Thank you for all the inspiration.

      Thanks, Vikki! We all love these types of challenges because it really flexes our design and DIY muscles. Glad it inspires our readers, too!

  5. Thank you so very much for breaking this down to small parts. I’m happy to find a new IG account @Careyscountrygarden to follow. I love how you interpreted her style to make it your own.

      So glad you enjoyed it, Emie! I’m sure you’ll enjoy Carey’s feed!

  6. Lora,

    I love how you put everything together for this vignette. The fabrics, bottles, books, planters, and painting are perfect for the garden-inspired theme. And the toolbox is so fun. It’s all perfect for spring!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thx, Angie! Nice to have another corner of my house Spring-ed up!

  7. First, I love your built-in cabinet and am looking forward to seeing how you finish the bottom. You styled this to perfection with so many beautiful vintage treasures. I adore the bird house that your husband’s uncle made and also the tote that you made so much cuter with the spindle handle and yardsticks. The pillows that you made are so pretty. My favorite is the one with the yo-yos added to it. I’ve never thought to display pretty glass light shades, great idea! I so much enjoyed seeing your beautifully styled shelves.

      So glad you enjoyed it, Paula! It was fun to have a new spot to decorate and so fun to style it with garden-pretty things:)

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Sophia:)

  8. This is so lovely, Lora. My heart skipped a beat when I got to the close-up of your bottle collection. Oh my, the colors are amazing. Your built-in cabinet is awesome and you did such a great job with your styling…and that little tool box with the vintage yard sticks. What a fun DIY!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Sheila! I really had fun pulling this all together! And I love this color scheme for Spring:)

  9. Lora,

    Beautiful and love the fabrics used. Your stash must be amazing! Your styling is beautiful.

      I have way too much fabric, Cindy! But luckily my daughter uses it now too, for her sewing projects!

  10. 1) I feel your pain with the no wide angle lense situation – that was me last time. 2) You’ve installed a vintage cabinet directly into your wall?!?! I LOVE IT! I love how you styled it and your pretty lamp shades and glass bottles hit my heart. Love it all. So well done!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, Heather, we built this cupboard into our hallway wall when we moved our bedroom door. There will be a redone vintage dresser down below that I found curbside. Can’t wait till it’s done, but we move so. slowly.

  11. I simply adore how you break things down, such great detail! Your Thrift the look has turned out so wonderfully, so rustic and vintage filled! Right up my alley!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m glad to hear you enjoy it, Laurie. Sometimes I think I’m just being long-winded, but I do enjoy talking decor! I just love these challenges and seeing the variety everyone comes up with!

  12. This is gorgeous, Lora! You so captured the spring garden feeling of the photo! What a wonderful space to decorate! Your tool tote turned out so cute and I love the planters, lampshades…all the wonderful goodies you brought together! Great look!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Linda! I was pretty happy with how that tool caddy turned out; am going to have fun with that one! I’ve been enjoying all the pretty things in this spot! Great intro to Spring!

  13. It’s beautiful Lora! I love it! Have you tried the camera on your phone? Mine has a wide-angle setting so I can get far away shots from right up next to things!
