Continuing on with our Christmas series, I wanted to show you how I decorated my green table this Christmas. I really think this mini Christmas vignette turned out nice! To see more about how this green table came to be head over here or here.
I have always loved to decorate with old things. But I also love to decorate with new things. Finding my own personal decorating style has been a work in progress. I think I am becoming more in tune with what I like and don’t like. Plus, I am also trying to find better ways to mix the old with the new.
The old pieces that were used in this vignette are:
the old window- found at the family farm
old books- thrift store
The rest of the items are things I already had on had or that I purchased recently. I have absolutely loved this green table makeover. I was so so worried about the green but I have been very pleased with how I have been able to decorate it no matter the season or the holiday.
Part of getting to know my decorating style is realizing that I like color. I have always known that I like color. The hard part is adding color to my home without having it look childish or too miss matched. I will not claim to have gotten it all perfect yet, but I feel that I am heading in the right direction.
One example of adding too much color is when I painted a giant wall in our home turquoise. I love turquoise. The problem was, first of all, I should have chosen a different wall to paint that bright of an accent. Second, I also went with too shiny of a paint. There were just so many problems with that wall. I am the type of person that unfortunately has to learn things the hard way…..
Luckily, that turquoise wall is no more!! I will put a post up about that wall soon, then you will understand!!
Let me show you around my little happy green table!
Since I decorated my mantel this year rustic with silver accents I wanted to add a touch of silver to this vignette. I spray painted a root beer bottle silver and added the silver bells.
l love the glittery, snowy feel that comes from this white vase filler. It compliments my snow covered JOY letters.
Thanks for stopping by today!
