My Buffet

Here's how I decorated my buffet.
I started by adding a faux greenery garland across the top of the mirror and added a feather boa, silver/gold twigs, a string of glass beads, my embellished starfish, and some mercury balls. I had everything except the silver/gold twigs. I found them for .99 cents a piece at a floral supply and they were an additional 40 percent off.

At night.

Here is my buffet from last Christmas.  Since then I have painted over the stencil, flipped the mirror, and added the architectural detail .  I'm still wrestling with what to do with the buffet itself?  Buy a "new" piece on CL or re purpose?  It belonged to my great grandmother but it's to small, I don't like the craftsman style, or the color.  Even if I refinish it the style will remain the same.  So it stays until I figure what to do. 

I purchased this living Norfolk Pine last year at Home Depot for $16.99 and it's still thriving.  I moved it inside for the season.  I added Christmas balls to the base of the urn.  The urn is old. it's from Target when they still had a garden center.

Here is the tree from last year wrapped in burlap.

I flanked the buffet with my two faux columns from Target.  They were a great purchase years ago from the garden center at 70 percent off.  They are light weight and portable.  I move them inside and out depending on the season.  I added urns and faux poinsettias and greenery.  I had all this stuff already and I wonder why we can only fit one car in the garage?

I used a piece of burlap to cover the top of the buffet and added some more silver, gold, and green.

I'm done with the inside, but I still keep tweaking things. 

I still have a lot of Christmas shopping to do.

Hope you and your family are enjoying the Holiday season.

Thanks for checking it out.

  1. Everything is so opulent and gorgeous. I've seen some beautiful transformations of furniture with some wood appliques, paint and a change of hardware.

  2. Are there any spaces left to add your magical touch to? It's so dreamlike, like walking through a winter wonderland, in California!

    I love the buffet and since it has sentimental value, it would look wonderful if you did the same finish on it like the mirror above it.

    BTW, my Kissing Ball would look perfect with your decor.

  3. So beautiful! Yet, I do understand the heirloom piece, but not quite right. I am sure you could find it another home.

  4. wonderful friend. can't wait to see it in person. love it all.

  5. Shannon... everything looks just amazing! Like it just popped off of a magazine page! Love the feathers, and the starfish! Not typical holiday decor, but fits you perfectly!


  6. Oh my, that is stunning!!! So elegant!! You really inspire me to change things up here and look at what I already have and see how it could be used differently!! :)

  7. oh my goodness Shannon!! its just lovely!! and love the unique touch of feathers!!
