Coffee Table Styling

Are you a knick-knack person? Do you like tchotchkes? I do! I use my knick-knacks to add a flair to tables, bookshelves, etc. I use them as something extra or finishing touches.

I feel like your coffee table just screams for little decorative extras. Why not? I don’t drink coffee so I have no other choice. JK. The coffee table is such a versatile piece and often times it’s the center piece of a room, so have a little fun with it.

You can go in many different directions with coffee table styling depending on the fashion or the function of the room. This is were knick-knacks or tchotchkes come in. You can add these in to make something functional look fabulous.

Here are a few examples of different styles and pieces that create different looks.

As you can see you have quite a few options to mix and match I incorporated pictures, flowers, and books. You can add or take away just depends on your preference or the aesthetic of the room. You can have fun with color or stick to a theme.

Project Bar Cart

I’ve been working on this project for quite some time and I’m still not done  but I wanted to share my progress!

I’m not really a drinker but I like the idea of a bar cart. For me it’s more about fashion rather than function (as are most things in my life lol).

I’ve been buying a few things here and there for my bar cart. I have a few glasses, cute paper straws, a tray, etc. but no actual bar cart.

The latest addition to my cart-less bar cart are decanters!  I was shopping in an antique store where I found three gorgeous vintage crystal decanters. I bought all three for 20 bucks!

I decided to take the bits and pieces I have collected so far and do a faux bar cart styling.

I have a few more pieces but I’m on the search for the perfect bar cart. I would like something with a least two levels and with gold accents.

What do you think so far?

I have been in love with Josie Maran products since the first day I discovered them! Josie Maran Cosmetics uses the tag line “Luxury with a Conscience”. I think that sums up this brand perfectly!

All the products mentioned are amazing. With Argan oil in every product you are guaranteed moisture and a healthy glow about your skin.

I like to think of Josie Maran products and cosmetics as healthy makeup. Your skin feels good and you feel good about taking care of yourself!

So Much Fabric So Little Time!

After yet another trip to Hobby Lobby yes I said Hobby Lobby where I bought more fabric yes I said more fabric I had a small mountain of fabric and a few project ideas at my disposal.

The first project was Pine Cone Orbs:

 

What you need:

  1. Fabric
  2. Styrofoam balls
  3. hot glue

Approx. Cost: $7

  • First pick the fabric you want and how many different patterns you want to use I used a different pattern for each orb.
  • Cut 2X2 squares of each fabric. (Depending on how big you want your orbs depends on how many squares you need to cut.)
  • Take one 2X2 square and glue it flat to the top of one of the styrofoam balls.
  • Fold a 2X2 square in half and then in half again now you have a little square.
  • Turn the square so it looks like a diamond and glue the edge with all the loose fabric ends to the ball. (The folded edge should be pointing up.)
  • Continue gluing around the orb until you complete a circle.
  • Then move down to start and new circle keep doing this until you have covered the entire orb.
