Simple Accessories

My simplify theme continues.  I am not sure I knew I was on a simplify theme, but let's face it, sometimes simple is best.  Simple is what most of us have time for, simple is easy, simple keeps our homes clutter free.  I know when many people think of junk and using thrift store finds in their homes, they think clutter.  But, it doesn't have to be that way.  Junk can be simple and minimal, yet unique and personal.  I recently picked up this salad bowl at the thrift store:
One coat of Florence, the newest Annie Sloan color, and some clear wax was all it took to change it into a simple, pop of color, home accessory.

Another tip--use what you have.  I spray painted some pinecones to add to the bowl.  I love these and living in Montana, I have a plethora of pinecones to choose from. I can't wait to spray paint some in bright, glossy colors. 
What simple accessories do you use in your home? 


  1. Becky your simple bowl turned out great.
