My coffee table in my family room has lacked the necessary decorative wow to make me happy upon seeing it. I had a runner that I made from extra pillow fabric and a decorative plate from Rod Works. However, I didn't love it. So last week, armed with my 25% off coupon to TaiPan, I headed to Sandy ready to find something great for my table. Here is the end result:
I used the 25% off on the tray, as I wanted something easily removed when we need the table. I have to say that I am in love with the end result. It makes me smile and feel like the room is now complete. Here are some of my great finds from TaiPan:
I love this glazed ceramic bird house. It was $7.
I like the height that these leather book boxes give. The tall one was my most expensive item, besides the tray, at $9. I found the small one and the globe ball at Rod Works.
As some of you may know, pre-made topiaries are expensive. So, I made my own. I got both ceramic pots for $4 and $5. The acorn ball was $4 and the green botanical spray was $5. I cut down the base of it and inserted into the pot to make it look like a topiary. So for under $10 a piece, I had my own unique topiaries!
Loved the wrought-iron pear from TaiPan. I filled him with the balls from Rod Works and love the textural difference.
My ultimate steal of the day was the jute runner. It was marked $10 and had some tassles on the end that I didn't care for but knew I could just cut off. When I got to the register, it rang in for $3. Best bargain of the day, and I love what it does for the table. All in all, I am so happy with my eclectic finds. Again, put your arrangement together at the store so that you can layer as you go filling in each space.
