What can you do with very little money, a lot of inspiration and a little creativity????
While studying accessorizing techniques on other blogs and decorating websites, I came across a simple example of inspiration for my breakfast table. I found this on Pat's dining room table at her blog Back Porch Musings and I just had to do it for myself. Please stop by and see what she has done in her home! She did the most amazing transformation with the color gray!!! I love it!
As you know, we are so out of budget!!! I needed to do this from everything I could find around my house. Well, I had most of it. I wanted to add another layer under it so I needed a silver tray. I found one at Goodwill for $6. I cleaned it up and it looks pretty good with a little character abuse!
I then placed on top of the tray, this ivory bowl that I bought at Wal-Mart at least 5 years ago.
I have had this crystal vase since we got married. It was a wedding present from SOMEONE!! Don't ask me who, I can't remember anymore! I placed it inside the bowl.
I found a bag of navy beans in the cabinet. I knew I wasn't ever going to make ham and beans for Mr. Creative! So I poured them in around the vase.
I didn't have any tall pillar candles so I dug out this short pillar. I put coffee beans in the bottom and set the pillar on them to give it more height. I then added the remaining coffee beans and there you have it!! Not the exact same as Pat's display but still a great inspiration!
Simple yet homey! That's how I try to be!! Sometimes I get a little cluttered!!
Many thanks to Pat for letting me use her picture as inspiration.
