I became inspired after seeing this photo in the latest Pottery Barn catalog (I'm really bummed, because you can't really see the top, but trust me, those are cameras).
Rick had a couple of old cameras, and I had some camera equipment that belonged to my grandparents in the 50s, so we thought there was enough to fill up the space above the hutch.
I added some old photographs and an old Disney movie reel (the only thing we purchased - found at Country Roads in Old Towne Orange for $9) and the vignette was complete.
(Clockwise from the left - my grandparents wedding photo from 1949, a baby photo of my dad from 1938, a photo of my dad and my grandmother from 1940, and my parents wedding photo from 1974)
From the left: Kodak movie projector & movie camera from the 50s, stack of film reels with old movies, including family trips to Knott's Berry Farm and Disneyland in the mid-50s, movie reel with old photographs, vintage cameras, and a 1940s vintage camera from Germany on a tripod.
The hutch belonged to my grandparents, too. It kind of came with the house. Mostly because it's just too dang big to get rid of. And I kind of like it.
Because of the ceiling fan, and the fact that it was 11:00 at night, made photographing very difficult, but I am so pleased with how it turned out, that I just had to share.
What do you think?
