Vignettes are all “the thing ” on DIY decorating blogs. Basically that’s a fancy word for creating a small scene with objects to tell a story. It encourages you to be thoughtful in your choosing and placement.
Unfortunately for the past nine years most of our table tops have been barren of anything that might resemble a vignette. No picture frames, precious collectibles, or flowers. It was impossible to keep all those chubby baby hands off my stuff.
But I think (fingers crossed) that we’ve finally reached the stage where I can display a nice grouping of things without fearing their demise within 10 minutes.
Here’s my beachy, summertime table top.
Shopping the house was a must because I’ve got zero budget and dragging my 3 little people out to shop is… well, I’d rather go to the dentist.
A wooden cigar box was given a white stripe with a few shells attached.
I love to share my projects with these fabulous blogs:
