To Display or not to Display, That is the Question....

I found this shabby old beauty at the shop a couple months ago, and couldn't wait to make it mine!
She can stand up vertical, strong and proud...
Or she can rest horizontally, like pictured below.  Which way do you like best?
I think I favor the horizontal myself.  Here's the big question of the day: 

Should I use this cubby in my home for decor, or in the shop for display of small things, like beautifully wrapped handmade soaps?  I guess at home it could also nicely hold crafts or mail...etc.  What would YOU do with it?

To keep or not to keep....  hmmmm

Here's another sweet white piece.  This I definitely purchased to sell at the shop, but won't it be fun to use it for display there for a bit?  Look at that woodwork...so feminine.

A little peek below
I'm sorry this pic is so dark, but I wanted you to see how tall and slender she is.
The little cabinet door at the bottom slides open.  I think this piece would be beautiful anywhere in the home, don't you?

Can't wait to hear your ideas for the "cubby".  For now, I'm linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm for another fabulous White Wednesday.  Hope to see you there!

I would have to agree with you horizontal is the way to go....on where to put it that is a hard one, it would look really adorable with soaps displayed in it.

I agree with you - horizontal is my fave. If you have something wonderful that fits the little cubbies, keep it! Sometimes small cubbies can be difficult to fill without looking cluttered, but in the right place with the right items, it will be amazing! With your sense style, you'll know just what to do!

LOVE your little cubby. Definitely horizontal for me.

Keep? Sell?? Tough one.
I have a store, and I am there more than home, and that cubby is perfect for display. So for me, the store, but not to sell, just to display. =) (unless you can get a pretty penny out of it and have something else wonderful to replace it.) =)
