how to decorate a room with “cow’s nose” {+meg duerksen}

I love Meg’s decorating style–so when she started offering prints and canvases, I couldn’t wait to hang one in my own home. I finally decided on this one–the cow’s nose. Chrissie and I were admiring it at craft weekend. I love the perspective and how FUN it is.

This pine hutch is a hand-me-down from my mom. She has great taste in antiques and when I was around 12 years old she told me I could pick one antique and she would save it for me. So I picked this one. Apparently, I was a wise 12 year old, because I still love this piece and it has a secured spot in our home.

The quality is beyond what I expected–wrapped edges and finished with a hanger. Very well done!

I added some treasures I’ve thrifted or found at vintage sales.

I have a stash of vintage plates in all colors and sizes. It’s hard to pass up a good plate–especially when they are only pennies!


This canvas so represents Meg to me. That girl has a kind, honest heart and a mind bursting with creativity. I love her.

These knobs were a souvenir from Thailand. There were other treasures to big to bring home–but these tucked into my suitcase nicely.

And here’s a look from across the room. It fits in quite nicely, I think! And it’s a great conversation piece when we’re sitting around the table eating.

You can find the same canvas here {it’s quite large and only $99!} Or pick up the print here. Check out more fun stuff here. And read Meg’s blog here.


  1. Love the old library date stamp on top of the books! Have you see the journal that looks like the old library cards that these stamps would have stamped? so very fun! Visiting from over at where I gush about all things stationery (while wearing my lisa leonard word of the year necklace)!
