Creating a Corner Vignette

I remember an old song from years ago, called Brighten the Corner.  That is what I did in a corner of the dining room.  For a very long time, a tall dark piece stood here.

I recently moved it to the master bedroom.  Seen below.

To brighten this corner,  I gathered several pieces and by layering them together, created a lighter space in the dining room.

First, I moved this old door from another corner to use as the backdrop, and as a place to hang other items.  I added this small shelf (thrifting find) to the door. This picture was a consignment find for around $3, and I hung it above the shelf.  I made several of these peat pot arrangements a while ago, so I added one to the shelf. The birdcage is light weight, and the yellow works with the picture.  My granddaughter gave me the little bracelet on the shelf.  

This wired frame was added next.  I bought the empty frame at a yard sale, painted it and added the wire to use as a jewelry display.  Yesterday, I added the burlap with lace (wal mart) to the back of the frame, and clipped on a fabric flower I made.  Pictures could also be clipped to the wire.

Next, I stacked some teacups and saucers on a plate and covered with this cloche.  

This small table (an old KMart find that I painted), grounds the corner.  The blue edge, and blue shutters underneath, work with the blue in the picture.  

So that's how I brightened up a corner in the dining room.  

Think outside the box, and see what you can layer together to create a vignette. I'm enjoying this little corner now.
