I paid a visit today to my Pottery Barn store for some home decor inspiration. I love to change up the look of my home without spending any $$. But I do appreciate some expert inspirtion. I have several go to sources, as I see you all do too. I think we can all agree Pottery Barn is one of our favorites!
I saw this table and fell IN LOVE.
And then I realized why I love it so.......I have a similar table at home. It was made from an old beveled glass window with original hardware that was at my mother's horse barn. I couldn't stand for something to happen to it. My mother brought it home to me and we commissioned the help of a carpenter friend with our vision to create a shadow box table.
After the table was built, I filled it with some of my beach treasures, each attached with memories of beach combing and family hikes with my family.While my table currently lacks dividers like Pottery Barn's, I am happy with it's look.
And......the table as well as it's contents-all FREE!!
What's not to love?
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
I mentioned my trip to Pottery Barn was to inspire me. I got just that in their beach inspired tablescape. It says SUMMER. And I LOVE it!
Everything on the table can be found at Pottery Barn....or other bargain stores if you just keep your eyes open!
