Shabby Little Nook with a Spotted Pumpkin

There is a nook in the desk in my office where a big monitor should go. It's a throw back to when you had a desktop pc and accompanying monitor. These days most peeps have laptops which well, you use on your lap or they have a tablet. Anyhow, the desk has great storage but that weird awkward spot needed something pretty.

Threw this together recently and having added a couple of pumpkins to it, I thought it would be fun to post. Everything you see here with the exception of the pumpkins and that little type tray came from the Corning ReStore at one point or another.

A little collection like this looks best with a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. The type tray works well for something tall in the back, but honestly I have plenty of room so I could actually add something even bigger. A empty frame with some cool texture would work or a cool silver tray. Looks like I need to do a little more thrift shopping!

Happy Hump Day!


  1. HAH! Any excuse.... the spotted pumpkin is my fave bit. Sort of retro quirky to balance the shabby chic!!!! Lovely little corner collection:):)

  2. Lovely little nook! I have my eye on the gorgeous tea pot!!!

  3. Looks nice. Love that little black pumpkin.

  4. Oh yeah... you could definitely go! (Enabler)... but it does look beautiful just the way that it is...
