Tabletop Fun

This is my first time joining the wonderful Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her Tabletop Tuesday party.

I'm just sharing some changes I recently made to my thrifty bombe chest that sits in my finished basement.
I scored the bombe at a yardsale last year for only $25.  Actually I bought two of them, but sold one on Craig's List.  They both needed a little love.  All I did was paint it black and add some gold Rub 'n Buff.


The clock above was another yardsale find for only $10, but it needed to be fixed, which cost $35.  Still worth it.

Here is the tabletop display.


You may recognize the personalized frame as one of Kristen's Creations.  Kristen just added a bunch of new goodies to her Etsy store, so be sure to go check that out before they are all gone.

The yellow pottery on the left was something I purchased with a CSN giftcard I won.  The other one I picked up at a yardsale a few months back for $5.  The runner was another yardsale find for $2.

I also added some more Fall tabletop displays to my decor.

This tray sits on my kitchen island and I added some fun berry garland from Michael's, a miniature white pumpkin and a candle.


This arrangement I put together using lots of different things and it sits on my kitchen hutch.


Thanks for visiting!  Please visit Marty's blog for some more tabletop fun!

xoxo,
Kim

Of course I absolutely love the cloche and filled with apples is perfect. The berries and candles are so pretty in the tray. Your hutch looks wonderful. All of your vignettes are so pretty.

Love it all! That centerpiece in the dining room is gorgeous! I need to work on my metal pocket today. I love going all out outside as well when have the funds but there are too many projects inside I want to tackle first rather than spend money on a bail of hay.

What a great find...not one, but, two bombay chest!!!!! Unbelieveable. You scored girl. I have been looking for one, but, they are so expensive. I find them for around $300.00 in furniture stores new or some times used around $200.00. It looks great in black. Thanks for the pictures of the fall decor. Decgal
