Corner Table Face Lift!

 The corner table...once again...another face lift!
This table gets changed the most often of any spot in the house!

I conned my hubby into a trip to Hobby Lobby (70 miles away) last week.  I picked up this birdcage cloche.  I had these artichokes and deco balls that I finally chose to fill it with.

My two Bunny Williams books joined the tabletop vignette.
OMG I would so love to spend time with her on a decorating project.  I can't even imagine how fun that would be!  I'm sure I'd walk away inspired beyond imagination but also wanting more than I can ever afford!  Where's that lottery ticket!!

You've seen this huge vase before- it moves around the house- it was on the dining table before Christmas as seen "here".  I placed a philodendron in the top for added height and color. 

My favorite candlestick still holding the Pottery Barn candle I got almost 2 yrs ago.  I have burned it some but I love the pattern on it so I want to preserve it.  You know you can stick a tea light down inside a pillar candle instead of continuing to burn the candle!  It can be a real tea light or flameless.

I have a flameless tea light candle in it.  When you have a candle with a pattern like this it shows off nicely the deeper down the flame goes.  I'll burn this one down a bit more but you get the drift.

We had a wonderful sunlit day when I took these pictures- sure brings the spirit up!
That's our doorbell up on the top left...design wise it bugs me but somehow I keep it.  It plays about fifteen different tunes that you can select from- even Yankee Doodle!  LOL...

  1. Hi Liz! What a wonderful spot! Love your new wire cloche and you have it decorated beautifully. The candle is very pretty too! Does it have a nice smell? Hope you have a great week and we're going to get some snow but not as much as Boston I think. Stay safe and warm.
    Be a sweetie,

  2. Oh my. I Love this tip that never occurred to me: "You know you can stick a tea light down inside a pillar candle instead of continuing to burn the candle"
    Thank you, Liz! I have a couple of candles. Not detailed ones like yours - which is gorgeous - but in colors. I'm so using this tip.
    I love how you play around every nook around the home. But then with so many treasured and lovely pieces it would be a crime not to. You're very good at it.

  3. Liz,
    Such a pretty vignette and your vase is such an amazing piece. I like the texture and interest it brings to your table.
    Glad you had such a fun day!
    Happy Monday,

  4. It looks lovely, and inspires me to change things once in a while. I get stuck in a rut! lol

  5. This little corner looks so pretty. The wood tones and metal gives so much warmth to the room.

  6. I love skirted round tables! The newest issue of HB says they are making a huge comeback. (Of course, I said where did they go???) I am trying to decide what to do with my LR to jazz it up, and I want to move out something to make room for mine again. You cloche is really pretty, too.

  7. I always applaud your dedication to keeping that table fresh! I think there is probably at least one space in every woman's home that warrants that kind of attention.

    I'm going to stop my bellyaching about a 15-minute drive to Hobby Lobby! You win!

    I have Bunny Williams' book "Affair With a House", and it is one of my favorites. I like the way you stacked the books there as a part of the decor.

    Our doorbell thingy is the bane of my existence. I'm going to someday figure out a way to disguise it...or rip it right out of the dang wall!!!

  8. Liz and Alycia, you can camouflage the doorbell by using chalk paint. It sticks to plastic and your doorbell will just disappear into the wall. I love to see how you restyle your table, Liz!

  9. Hi Liz, I always enjoy seeing what you change up with your corner table. Love the vignette too. We had the same doorbell in our last home in Cincinnati and it too played about a dozen different tunes. It was in the hallway and never interfered with any wall decorating. Your books look interesting and I'm not familiar with this one. Gorgeous metal cloche!
    Have a great week.

  10. This corner always looks so pretty Liz!! Your new vignette is lovely!

  11. .a lovely change to your favorite corner table. Sometimes change can really pick up one's spirits.

  12. I don't blame you for preserving that pretty candle. I do that with tea lights, too. I am addicted to tea lights! Your corner table is nice and fresh, as usual. Funny, I hadn't noticed the door chime. How blessed you are to be able to choose a tune. Yankee Doodle is fun. :-)

  13. Your lucky to have a spot to do all your beautiful changes Liz! Love this one too!

  14. So pretty and that tip about the tea light. How fabulous is that.

  15. I love the whole vignette, Liz! That big vaseris so pretty and your new cloche/birdcage is fabulous! I like the keys hanging on the sconce too:) I do the same things, put a tea light in a candle that has burned down some.


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
