12 Days of Christmas Ideas--Day 7

On the seventh day of Christmas Beyond The Picket Fence showed me...a mirror and some pitchers (sorry, I have been working on a rhyme for 15 minutes, nothing is coming to me).  This idea started with this door from Pottery Barn:

I thought the pitchers were unique and fun but didn't want to hear them clinging and a clanging every time the door opened and shut.  I decided to start with their idea, but make it better (yes, I am declaring my idea better than Pottery Barn's).  
I started by collecting silver creamers/pitchers from the thrift store (I spent less than $10 on these).  I used a mirror I had on hand--adding a little brown over the black, scratched finish.  I love rustic jute with shiny things, so I used it instead of ribbon.  I taped the jute on the back of the mirror with packing tape and then added some little touches to each pitcher--rolled up Christmas sheet music, berries, greenery and a pine cone.
This is hanging above my fireplace and I love it already (yes, I just finished making it a few moments ago).

  1. This is so cool! Yes, it's better than Pottery Barn. Besides not clanging whenever you open the door, no one will be likely to steal it. :)

  2. Wow what a great display. I agree I couldn't take them clanging on the door but they look perfect over the mirror.

  3. So incredibly cute! And yes, Pottery Barn doesn't hold a candle to yours!

  4. Simply Stunning. You have a wonderful knack of putting things together.

  5. Becky, it's sooo pretty! I don't think I'd want it clanging on my door either.
    You really did a nice job, and got a great deal!
    Thanks for linking up and linking back to me.
    have a great weekend,

  6. Cool idea!

    And you sort of freaked me out with that first pic. I'm thinking... you have ALL THAT SNOW and you aren't screaming it from the hilltops?!? (we love snow) :)
