Hello! I am in the process of changing a few things in my living room. Since the living room is not yet complete, I thought I would share with you how to create a simple vignette for your ottoman or coffee table.
I really love my spring centerpiece, however, I thought it looked better for Easter.
I gave myself a challenge for this vignette. It was to not spend any money on it. It is so easy to just go out and buy something new. I wanted to see what I could come up with by using things I already had around the house.
First, find a tray of some sort. The basket I was previously using was too large. Instead, I used a basic tray my husband made for me.
Next, find some things around the house that bring you joy. I went with three things.
Books really bring me joy so I wanted to incorporate an old book into my vignette. I had one of my old favorites, but the cover was falling apart. I removed the rest of the cover and wrapped twine around it. All it needed next was a flower stem. Now it has a beautiful vintage look to it!
For the other two items, I used what I had in my previous centerpiece. I love that adorable vintage olive bucket and of course, a candle.
I used my burlap basket in place of the olive bucket just to see how it would look.
They both look great, but the little bucket is my favorite!
Did you notice that the tray is white in some of the pictures? I decided to paint it since the couch is dark. It really makes the items stand out.
So to wrap things up, all you need to do is find a tray of some sort and three things you love. I would recommend one of those items to be a plant of some sort. Plants, whether real or faux, just make you feel more at ease.
I hope this post inspired you to create a little vignette of your own. Here is Lulu next to mine enjoying some peace and quiet! Enjoy!
