  1. “Shelfie”… you might have just coined a new word there! 🙂 Great shelf styling tips!

    Thanks so much for sharing this on the Farmhouse Friday link party! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Michelle! And somehow I think I’ve heard it used that way before-I just don’t remember where;)

  2. Wonderful tips, Lora! Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm!

    I like how you did this! Excellent method for teaching others. Can I mention something that you for sure put into practice in your display but didn’t mention in you diagrams? I find it usually pleasing to add “life” in the way of greenery, whether fake or real. I also like to add some soft which is usually gained by adding greenery but if not greenery then some type of material. If going vintage I would have perhaps added burlap or old lace. As I mentioned, you already have those things added with the grass and plants, just wanted to bring attention to it. Love your display and your teaching method, it all turned out beautifully. Thanks for sharing it. I’m going to be sharing it too!

      After thought, this is so well done…I think you need to do others, in other places, with other designs.

      1. Laurie, Thanks for the compliment & so funny that you mention adding the foliage, because I totally thought of that…but ran out of time:) Adding some live in the form of plants, a candle flickering, or an animal(in this case the owls) is the cherry on top of every display! Thanks so much for the comment & thanks for sharing!

  4. Great tips Lora! Your shelf turned out great. I’m definitely shelf styling challenged so the next time I do a shelf makeover I’ll be sure to use your tips.

  5. I love the styling tips. As I read I kept looking at my shelf. It needs help so I will take your advice. The vignette looks great.
