So where did you place the stained glass window?….

After the antique wood and iron shutters were mounted above the mantel….

…..the question presented by many was….

So where did you place the stained glass window that was over the mantel?

So here is the before:


And here is the after of the mantel with the new antique iron and wood shutters:


Here is the foyer before:


And here is where the stained glass found its new home….


The mirror over the table has been relocated….

… know, that domino/snowball effect.

You put one new thing on the wall and you have to move many other items!!…

In my case, I also had to move a couple of pieces of furniture.


So is this what they call Zero Dollars Decorating?


I had a lamp on that table and it just did not go with the stained glass….

… actually was too large and covered most of the bottom portion of the stained glass.

So off it went to another space.

I replaced it with a trio of Pottery Barn Champagne Mercury Glass candle holders.

I added a square Portmeirion plate…




The plates on the sconces had to be changed out too….the domino effect again…

So I placed my Jadite plate and bowl on the sconce…and added a dried hydrangea bloom.



I like the change…..

… I really like the other changes that I had to make….Oh, Dom – min – O…..

As I was moving things around…

… hubby kept singing that song…Oh…ah…oh…Dom – min – O…



I hope you liked my “re-design”….the Part One of the Domino Effect…

And I would like to add a great big THANK YOU!!!…and a shout out to Susan from Between Naps on the Porch….

… I won the $100 Gift Card from Old Time Pottery!…..

Great timing for some great Christmas decor shopping!!….Thanks again Susan!!!

  1. That looks so good there. Perfect spot and great vignette.

  2. Gotta say I live that look!!! It’s very bold…and you know I LOVE bold!!! Great repositioning maneuver!

  3. I love the new look of the foyer. While both areas were pretty before, both now look amazing! Your stained glass piece is to die for!

  4. Oh my what a huge piece for your hubby to hang. But it is gorgeous!!!!
    Love where you have placed the stained glass window and the vignette.

  5. Shirley, I love the stained glass window over your table! It’s quite a statement piece too! I know, you could just send it to my house for a visit! ๐Ÿ™‚ Lucky girl, to have both of these amazing pieces! Congrats on your win! I think you’ll have a fun shopping spree! I can’t wait to see what you choose!

  6. Perfect, Shirley!! I love the new vignette! It looks as if it has been there forever! Love it! Now, where did the mirror go? Lol!

  7. Linda Miller says

    It looks great. You are the best at always finding a home for things. Now the zero dollars decorating…my husband would never buy into that type of reasoning as the shutters which started the domino effect were not free. Aren’t you glad you’re married to Tom? LOL

  8. Shirley,
    I think the stained glass window actually fits better here-makes much more of a statement. The whole table-scape is just beautiful! Great changes both for the fireplace and table!

  9. The fireplace and the entry are both fabulous. Love the new look for the fireplace and the vignette you created on the table is gorgeous. Great job. Hugs, Marty

  10. I think that goes with your white table better and the size is good too. It’s funny when you get something just the way you want it and you come up with one change that makes it even better.

  11. So glad the stained glass has a new place of honor. I had been wondering about it but didn’t want to ask. It makes a lovely statement in the entry.

  12. Love the stained glass window in its new spot!! It looks fabulous ๐Ÿ™‚


  13. Oh Shirley the stained glass looks beautiful in it’s new home and I love the pretty vignette you created to go with it too!

  14. I love its new spot, Shirley! It’s such a pretty window I’m glad you were able to find somewhere to use it that showed it off.

  15. Your beautiful window is absolutely perfect there, Shirley!

  16. Well now, that is just perfect. Can’t wait to see where you’re going to put that pretty lamp….and on and on and on….

  17. No cost decorating is the best, right? Love that you found the perfect welcoming place for your gorgeous stained glass window! A fabulous way to greet your guests!



  18. Super great changes! I love them all. Congratulations on the gift card.


  19. Wow Shirley, you not only luck out with great finds, you find the perfect place for them. Good work.

  20. O>>>>M>>>>>G!!!!!!!!!!!! That looks GORGEOUS over the mantle and the stained glass is perfect in the foyer, better size. Love the changes in the foyer, the colors are beautiful. I don’t know which piece I like better now:):) XO, pinky

  21. That is the perfect spot for the stained glass! How beautiful.

  22. Elizabeth Burton says

    The stained glass fits that space perfectly…..looks great!

  23. oh my gosh, those are the most awesome shutters! I like the stain glass but the shutters are to die for. I just found your blog through the Southern Bloggers Conference. I’m coming, yeah!!!! My first blogger conference. Can’t wait to meet everyone.

  24. Oh, I love the stained glass there. The jadite plates are perfect and I am going to copy your boxwood on the candlesticks. I have a lot of mercury glass c sticks but I never light the candles
    (allergies). That was a beautiful transition.
    Congrats on the win at BNOTP. I know what you will be doing soon.
    Blessings, Ginger

  25. I love where you put that and I love all the accessories. Especially the mercury glass candle sticks.


  26. It looks great! I love using an existing item in a new space!

  27. Love the stained glass window in your foyer…..gorgeous vignette too!
    Have a great week!

  28. What a perfect statement for your foyer – it’s a beautiful piece and deserved to be front and center!

  29. I am loving your no-cost decorating. Just think of it this way, our hubs won’t get bored with us as they never know what we’ll be doing next or where the furniture will be? lol. How you redid everything is gorgeous. Most all those iron shutters? To die for. Where did you get them? I’m absolutely green with envy. Enjoy your blog alot.

  30. Your stained glass window looks beautiful over your foyer table Shirley! Moving one thing definitely causes a domino effect! I absolutely LOVE your hydrangea paired with your Jadite~ it really brings out that beautiful milky green shade in your window ๐Ÿ™‚

  39. Congrats on your win! You are going to enjoy that! Your stained glass window is so beautiful. I really like where you hung it. You can probably get a better look at it now since it is eye level.

  40. Just when I thought your home couldn’t get any better…. ๐Ÿ™‚ I LOVE the stained glass in it’s new home! Bring on that domino effect!

  41. Your mantel was stunning before, but now you have two amazing “mantels”!! Love the stained glass window!

  42. Wow! love the stained glass piece. It adds so much color and the size is perfect. Love how you decorated the sconces with the Jadite plates and hydrangeas. Great color.

  43. I didn’t think it could get any prettier than over the mantel, but you have once again proved me wrong. And how did I miss this in my email? I was thinking to myself that you had not posted anything in a while and I hopped over to see what you were up to and lo and behold I see this beautiful creation. I love everything about this vignette and to be honest, it is so much more dramatic that what you had before. I especially love how the beautiful jadeite plates bring out the green of the glass. Its perfect in every way. Now I can’t wait to see where your mirror will go. Dominooooooooo. ๐Ÿ™‚ xxoo

  44. congrats on your gift card!!!! I just absolutely love that stained glass piece. where did you get something like that?
    In my house your Domino effect is similar to my musical chairs! Happy Day my sweet friend!

  45. Beautiful stained glass piece. This has given me an idea for a faux piece. enJOYed your post.

  46. Oh Wow! The stained glass window has found the perfect spot! And the entire vignette surrounding it is gorgeous! Love all the touches of green that accent the window so well!

  47. What a beautiful home and those pieces are gorgeous !

  48. Your gorgeous stained glass window was made for its new spot. It provides a beautiful focal point there, and of course the other accessories you moved there gives that space a whole new look.

  49. Simply beautiful.

  50. Katherines Corner says

  51. Your makeovers are both lovely. Both your stained glass (love!) and the new antique shutters (love!) are stunning! Thank you for sharing your creative project at Potpourri Friday!

  52. There could not be a more perfect spot for that stained glass window! It’s gorgeous!

  53. What a perfect place for your gorgeous stained glass!

  54. You know I’m totally in love with that stained glass window! And I LOVE it’s new home! Just lovely, my dear! Your vignette is equally striking and pulls the colors together! xoxo

  55. Absolutely gorgeous. I love the stained glass window. I must also tell you that you take beautiful photos. Very impressive. I will be featuring this tonight at my Fall into Fall that opens at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I’ve Been Featured button. Thanks.

  56. Shirley, love the new look! The window looks right at home there. The sconces with the jadite are great accents! Loved the Domino song by hubby. He sounds alot like mine. My hubby doesn’t love vintage, but never says a thing when I buy it and is always willing to hang it for me. Oh, except I bought an old black chandy that I want to hang out on my porch. When I asked him about it he said, “Let’s think about this one for a while” That was last Saturday. Long enough don’t you think? Get er done! lol! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  57. Shirley it looks perfect there! Thanx for partying at my place!:)

  58. Gorgeous! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  59. You are featured today on Potpourri Friday!

  60. I am looking to change my windows this year and somebody said that read some blog posts to find out which window company is best and after reading your post I am sure now that upvc windows are the best choice, thanks for sharing this awesome post.
