COFFEE TABLE DIARIES: STACKED

HOW TO STYLE A COFFEE TABLE (5)
I am always moving things around in our apartment, styling and re-styling as my mood changes or I get a new trinket. Our coffee table usually gets the most attention as it is the center of our living room, and we use it for so many purposes. Sometimes I just want it to look pretty for guest, sometimes it needs to function as our dinner table, and other times FMK just wants a place to prop up his feet.
I decided to share 3 of my favorite ways to style our coffee table in the next few weeks. The first one is beautiful, but not as functional (if you have a baby and a husband who likes to put his feet up). Our coffee table usually only looks like this when we are expecting company, but it is my favorite!

HOW TO STYLE A COFFEE TABLE (2)

Create this look in 3 easy steps:

1.) Simply make four stacks of books, one on each corner.
2.) Create your favorite flower arrangement for the center.
3.) Top off each stack of books with your favorite trinkets!

    It looks gorgeous! I wish we could get away with displaying so many pretty things but a 2 year old just doesn’t allow for much home styling.
