fall vibes in the kitchen – thrifted tureen

Happy Monday, friends!!! Today, I’m so excited to be joined by a few friends for our monthly thrift store challenge.

I found a darling table that I was going to redo, but I ran out of time. Thankfully, I also found a tureen. It’s not old, but I still really like it!

I decided to use it on the shelf in my kitchen. I took pictures of the shelf styling process, so you can get a sense of how I go about it.

I started by filling the the tureen with pinecones.

Added a few books, a pumpkin, and a piece of architectural salvage.

Removed the books and pumpkins, added the scale, white pumpkins, cook books, and a piece of architectural salvage on the bottom shelf.

Added a galvanized jack’o lantern

Switched the pinecones out for some leaves and a pumpkin. Also added a gourd.

Switched the leaves out for some hydrangeas.

Took a few books away and added a couple more gourds.

Added a few leaves around the Jack-o-lantern, and just a couple more white pumpkins for the finishing touches.

Yay for thrifted treasures and fall vibes!!!
