HOW TO DECORATE A BEAUTIFUL BUDGET FRIENDLY COFFEE TABLE

DECORATING A COFFEE TABLE ON A BUDGET THE SMART WAY!

It is something about decorating that makes me feel good inside. Both decorating and saving money just a couple of  things that I enjoy doing.  There are honestly a million things that I enjoy doing.

I can save money anywhere and practically on anything. So, who enjoys decorating but doesn’t like spending  lots of money raise your hand? Why spend hundreds of dollars making your home beautiful when you can decorate for less.  Next, on my to do list was to decorate my $54 coffee table from Wayfair.

BUDGETING

Where to get your bang for your buck?

If you  are interested in decorating  but are saying I wish I knew how?……then my friend follow along For starters,  have a project in mind  that you would like to decorate such as your bedroom, powder kitchen or etc.  Then, head to a budget-friendly shopping store such as  IKEA, Tjmaxx, Ross, the Dollar Store, and/or a Thrift Store to get the biggest bang for your buck!

Don’t be afraid to buy items that look old, used or slightly broken.

Keep in mind that anything you find at Thrift store can be repurposed.  The hardest thing I find about shopping at a thrift store is sticking to the list and refrain from purchasing other items. However, if you can afford it and believe that you can work it into another project  then get it. One time while at the thrift store shopping for items to decorate my bookshelf,  I noticed an amazing pair of candlesticks. The first thing I did was flip it over to see the price and I noticed it was from Pottery Barn. Yes, I will take that for $8 and spray paint its silver.

DECORATING

IDENTIFY YOUR STYLE

My style is transitional. It is the balance between contemporary and traditional where new style piece meets older styled items 🙂 .  If you don’t know your style take this quiz what’s your decorating style?

MIX & MATCH 

For a good balance and for things to look natural,  mix and match items. For example,  in terms of  height, books are great low-level items that go well with a tall flower vase. In terms of weight if you go with something heavy like a rock or decorative metal,  then pair it with something light and airy.  When I need inspiration I check out Kylie M, Interiors for decorating ideas, her page is amazing!

GROUP THINGS TOGETHER

Grouping books, magazines, candles or knick knacks together gives a cohesive balance.  Things seem a lot messier when books, picture frames or other items are scattered all over the table. To reduce clutter,  get a tray to keep similar items together.

ADD LIFE

Flowers or plants are a great way to add life to your coffee table. If you do not have a green thumb then try succulents or fake plants. I feel sorry for the live plants that enter my house, but practice makes perfect.
