I shared with you our trip to IKEA on Saturday.
IKEA doesn't really get new products all that often but when we were there the other day, I saw this tray.
It is called the ROMANTISK Tray.
It is 20 inches by 15.
It was only $9.99.
I couldn't pass it up.
I just love it.
It reminds me of the old fashioned tole black trays that I used to collect.
This is a fun, fresh take on that look.
It was just the impetus I needed to create a new vignette for the coffee table.
The only thing I've had on here for about a year was a basket full of magazines.
I love the pop of white on the brown trunk.
I added the SKURAR Plant Pot also from IKEA.
A few lovely books, a French looking candle from Dillard's and a snowflake tea light from Crate and Barrel round out the display.
In order to keep the room from looking too busy, I edited the side table and took away a pitcher full of greens.
I've come to the conclusion that you don't need something on each table in a room.
(You also don't need a pillow in each chair.)
Can I get a cheer from the men out there?
Our curtain panels are also from IKEA.
The sun peeked out from behind the clouds for just a minute today.
I was able to snap a few photos.
I'm committed to this idea that I'll blog when I have something to share and not stress about the photos, the sun and perfection.
Not every post has to be about a marathon type of project.
