Another Before and After-Less is More

I've had this piece for awhile, I like the piece, but was never quite sure what to do with it.

This weekend I decided to just go for it. I would remove the various misc items to another place and just use it for utilitarian display. I placed just a few statement pieces in each cubby and then I pulled out all my linens.

Sorted, folded and placed them neatly in the bottom 2 bins.

Less is more and I'm really liking this arrangement. It allows me to highlight some of my Fall colored Dishes that I've collected over the years and gives the piece a less cluttered look.

Looks good, Margo. The colors all go together. I liked it the other way, too. What'd you do with your vintage glasses?

I like it alot! It looks like a different cabinet now. I especially love your old scale. I'm on the hunt for one!

It looks nice! More of a 'statement' piece now instead of for storage.

Oh, yeah! That does look better! Sometimes we do get too much going on. I'm the world's worse. It's hard to scale back. But you did it perfectly.

I totally agree!
The pottery pieces look fabulous with the color of the cubby/cabinet.
And I love the cute scale on top.

I really like this look! Looks like a totally different piece. Came by to let you know I received the dog door stop I won on Flea Market Style site today. You can see where he is sitting now in our home on my post today. Have a great week!

In my opinion, this is a perfect solution to this cute little piece. I love the addition of soft napkins along with the colorful dishware. Very nice and handy too, I'm sure.

What a difference! I really like the new look to the cabinet, and those dishes are very pretty. Glad I recently discovered your blog.
