Windy Meadows Farm
asked me if I had any suggestions
on how to display her prim cabinet below.
Apparently it has been out in the barn,
and she has brought it inside.
What a fine cabinet and so glad she
finally decided to bring it inside her home.
Now when I first saw this cabinet
my first thought on how to decorate it was to
add a large basket on top.
Add bittersweet to the basket.
3 pumpkins on the bottom shelf.
Plus make a garland of marigolds to
hang from drawer to drawer.
If you grow marigolds,
when you dead head them,
just take some embroidery floss to a needle
(measure first how long you need the garland to be)
and string them to make your garland.
Make sure you make a loop on each end to hang.
Now I do not have a cabinet like Mary's
to show exactly how I would decorate it.
Just pretend there are the drawers in the middle.
Pitchers would make a statement for sure.
I you have a piece of linen or blue ticking,
place it on top on an angle before adding
Let hang over the right drawer a bit and
move the pitchers on the bottom so you can
I noticed Mary had some bowls in her cabinet
in the back...so here is my bowl display.
I also spotted an oil lamp in her pic.
So I added some of my baby shoes for this display.
You could also just put shoes in a bowl
on the bottom shelf.
This one has my cake crocks and just
one crock on top.
I have quite a few 2 gallon crocks.
I like this size because they are easy to move
If you have pantry boxes,
this is another simple idea.
I added one sugar bucket on top of the box.
Linens and quilts also make a fine display.
Wood bowls are a simple one too.
For Christmas add a little tree
with some Santa's all around.
Bottle brush trees and other fun Christmas items.
Or more Christmas figurines with greens added in.
A cranberry garland is a must for the drawers.
For a Winter display create a pinecone garland
and maybe add a mitten to each drawer pull too.
For different garland ideas for the drawers,
a sweet potato garland is fun!
Cut a sweet potato into cubes.
Attach to a six strand floss using a needle.
Again make sure you measure the floss first
for the length.
Dry the garland in a 200 degree oven
on waxed paper until dried.
The sweet potato will shrink, but it looks awesome!
A garland of mini yellow gourds.
Orange or apple slices.
You can make yourself or purchase on Ebay.
I have also used whole slit oranges
I purchased from Ebay for garland too.
For the top shelf before adding your display items,
you can drape quilt pieces, ticking, fabric
or coverlet pieces if you choose to.
You can hide a drawer or not.
Choice is totally up to you.
Now for my blogging friends.
Do you have a suggestion for how to decorate
The dimensions are 17 1/2 inches tall,
38 1/2 inches long and 16 inches deep.
The bottom shelf is 8 inches tall,
14 inches deep and 35 inches long.
Will enjoy hearing how you would
decorate this beauty!
