Rearranging The Top Of The China Cabinet

Well, to tell you the truth, my hubs has never really loved this DIY herb trough like I have.

Apparently he doesn’t have quite so warm a place in his heart for manky old troughs built out of pallet wood and painted with a crazy aqua and chevron stripes

Go figure. 🙂

So after his graciously living with it for well over a year, I removed it the other day from the top of the china cabinet.

But what to put in its place?

I shopped the house and used the frame from this project

…along with a white ceramic urn-shaped vase from inside the china cabinet and an off-white ceramic vase from our bedroom. I used the preserved hydrangeas from the DIY herb trough to fill them.

Well, hopefully hubs prefers this look! It’s much more traditional than the chevron-striped herb trough, but I think I like it.

So, do you ever “shop your house” for a no-cost redecorating endeavor? Do tell! Scroll down to comment below…
