If you spend any time at all shopping in consignment stores or browsing tag sales, you know that it’s pretty easy to find vintage dressers at great prices. While you may not need another dresser in your bedroom, a low profile dresser with drawers has lots of potential to add style and function to your home.
The great thing about these dressers, in addition to their low price, is their versatility. Since they are made of wood, they are easy to sand and paint, whether your style sensibilities cry out for the purity of shabby chic white or a glossy shade of jade green to go with Asian fusion style. So rather than pass by yet another ubiquitous vintage dresser, consider these fun and practical ideas.
Dining room table centerpieces can be instant focal points in the room. Whether elegant or casual, the centerpiece reflects the mood of the room or helps to create one. Using one bowl centerpieces for the dining room table are especially easy. They are inexpensive and easy to create, plus they can quickly be changed out to fit holiday decor or dinner party themes. When thinking about designing a one bowl centerpiece, use the ideas below to get started.
Choose a bowl that is versatile enough to coordinate with a variety of holidays and decorating ideas. Although the basic decor of the dining room is unlikely to change from season to season, the added holiday accessories may alter the decor slightly. Choosing a bowl that matches the room during all of its holiday transitions will keep clutter down and make it easy to switch from season to season and back again. Opt for a neutral bowl material like ceramic, glass or wood for the most versatility. Also consider the width and depth of the bowl. For a small dining room table, a smaller, but taller bowl would look great. However, for a longer dining room table, a wider, shallower bowl would work better to fill the space.
