Coffee Table Redone

Sometimes you create a new vignette by accident.  When I get the new dresser done for my bedroom, I am going to give the buffet I have in their to my son, he has the perfect wall to put it on in his dining room.   I was looking through  my stash and pulled together a few accessories to decorate the buffet with.  I am trying to give his home a little bit of character and still not be fussy at all.  The plant in the white pot is going to him.  A faux plant that doesn't take any care, but adds a little interest.   As I was putting things together for his house, I sat it temporarily on the coffee table, well that got me to creating a whole new vignette.  So I am borrowing his plant until the dresser is finished. lol

The coffee table has looked like this since March.  Can you believe I havn't changed it in that long.  Lovely, but more than time for a change.

A couple of candlesticks and a tray were all that were necessary.  This has me thinking, I have a couple of really small wood candlesticks that I could put on my son's coffee table.  That wouldn't look too girly.  He keeps his house looking really nice, but he doesn't like anything prissy.

I left the pretty wood of the table showing for a change.  I like it.

I still like the small cloche with the crystal egg.  Looks great on the tray.  (Be sure to check out the sidebar for  info about the Summer Cloche Party)

A Faberge plate is always a great accessory anywhere.

Fun to play and I like his plant, I may have to make one for me.

  2. It looks pretty, Marty. I like how you repeated the clear glass with the pretty candle holders and the cloche. You certainly have some great wood pieces.

  19. Marty,
    The table looked wonderful, but it is always fun to tweak!
    Bare wood is beautiful. The white pot is a perfect touch, with the faux plant inside.

  24. Mercy, Marty!! I desperately need a coffee table change too and for some reason, living room coffee table is my biggest problem. I painted it..(sick of so much oak) and now things are worse than ever. I have white...and I think I am ready for a change...but to what?
    I have missed doing "Tabletop Tuesday and am determined that this next Tuesday I will have that living room coffee table what..I have no idea..
    I love what you did to yours, but I always do! I've tried to copy you but it doesn't turn out. The decanters are wonderful. Your coffee table has gorgeous wood..and leaving it bare is perfect. Yep. :) I can tell you are ready for Fall. ME TOO! It's miserably hot here!
