Styling a [thrift-tastic] Entry Table

Here is my newly styled Entry Table... pretty cute, huh? [if I do say so myself]. Want to know what makes it extra cute? Thriftiness. I found all of these accessories [not the sunburst mirror, I already had it] for about $30. I found the glass vases @ Goodwill for just a couple dollars each. There are always a ton of glass vases at any thrift store. I just sifted through them until I found three that worked for my plan [I was thinking scale: large / function: candle holders / form: simple]. I had planned on using Looking Glass Mirror Like Spray Paint [by Krylon] to make them look like Mercury Glass; however, once I put the white candles in, I liked the simple & clean look of plain glass. So, [for now] I'm keeping them as-is.

I wanted to mix [muted] silver & gold accessories in order to "play off" the sunburst mirror. So when I found this bird I instantly fell in love with him [Yes, it is a boy. And his name is Oliver. Don't ask me why- I'm only telling you what my daughter has informed me.]. Right next to him was the pewterish/goldish pot [which is signed and numbered by the artist...]. I snatched it up as if it were the last candy bar in the kids' halloween bucket [did I just admit that?!]!! The white planter was on clearance at Target, and then I got creative and transplanted a fern from my yard to keep costs as low as possible.

Now for the truly amazing find. A fellow thrifter found this 3ft x 4ft mirror @ Goodwill for $19.99 [thanks Wendy!!]. She's a rock star. Now I have an entry that says "Welcome [to my unique and thrifty home]." What does your entry say??

  3. I have that sunburst mirror too! I found mine at Hobby Lobby last year but they still have it in stock. I think "Oliver" matches the mirror very well. Great vignette!

  11. Love your table. The bird is just perfect. I love whatever you have laying on the table -- is it a lead window? Gotta love Good Will. I found the pelican mine needed at a thrift shop, too, after looking everywhere and not like anything. Great price, too.
