If you have a collection of pewter serving sets that never get used, why not give them new purpose as floral vessels? Add potting soil inside of a gravy boat or goblet, then carefully pot a flower or plant inside of it. For an extra layer of decoration, cover the soil with dianthus cut to size and held in place with floral pins.
Homeowner Wendy Durnwald injected a touch of rustic elegance in her kitchen by adding an aged wooden cabinet. She stores appliances like her coffee maker, toaster and slow cooker behind a cute country curtain, which keeps her counters tidy and lets her style shine through. Here, she has also layered an antique cutting board, a pizza stone and a china gravy boat filled with juniper to spruce up her countertop.
