I’m relatively known for thinking way outside the box. I’d love to consider myself the queen of multi-purposing and repurposing. I do it with a lot, and as of late I’ve been doing it with furniture. I’m really someone who loves to switch things up often. Whether its moving a piece around or putting it up for sale to get something else. I’m actually pretty obsessed with seeing how people style small spaces. I really couldn’t be happier to have 747 square feet to work with because I’ve become so creative with how I style. I’ve been looking around for a coffee table and I think I may have found the one, but its a couple hundred dollars and I’m just not ready to buy it yet, so until then I’m going to play around with what I have. I love the versatility and style of nesting tables and layering things so in this post I’m going to share a few ways to use accent tables and planters- yes, planters.
I found this black drum-style accent table and was immediately drawn to it. I had been meaning to get a brass one just like it for my patio, but it has been out of stock since forever. I gave in to the black one when I saw a planter that looked mighty well standing right next to it. I have placed the accent table just slightly under the planter for a nesting effect and I cannot get over its abstract aspect. I’ve already had a few people ask, “where did you get that!?” as if it came together and I can’t help but go into detail about how it may be a good idea to see something and personally style it. You can do with furniture just as you do with clothes! The home can be a reflection of you and your taste. Accent tables usually go on the side of a sofa and there’s nothing wrong with that either. I’m using it in the center of my space and that’s okay.
Spots To Place An Accent Table
- to the side of the sofa (typical)
- between a few chairs in the patio/balcony
- in the center of the room (why not)
- off to the side somewhere
- the bathroom
- the bedside
- the bedroom
- walk-in closet
