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.

Live it. Love it. Style it.

Table Makeover

I have a table and chair set that my parents gave me when I moved into my own place. This table and chair set is almost thirty years old! So you can imagine it needed a little makeover.

I not only wanted to update the table but I needed it to match my style and color scheme a little better.

This makeover was a total of $10!

What I used:

  1. spray paint (black and white)
  2. fabric
  3. staple gun

I did this over the span of the weekend but this project could be completed in a day or less.

DIY: Table Refresh

For this project all I used was paint and painter’s tape. Now for a little extra I used a sealant so the table wouldn’t get scratched up when it is in use.
