3 Ways to Decorate a Sofa Table for Spring

It’s time for Spring Decorating and I’ve joined Cindy at County Road 407 for her monthly Pinterest Challenge. This month we are styling a Sofa Table for Spring and our Inspiration Photo comes from Sincerely Marie Designs.

Since I couldn’t decide which table I liked best, I’m sharing 3 Ways to Decorate a Sofa Table for Spring. I used mostly thrifted spring décor collected from various thrift stores and flea markets. I can’t wait to see which is your favorite.

If you are joining me from Kim at Shiplap and Shells, I’m so glad you made it all the way across the country. Isn’t Kim’s Table Vignette just stunning?

The Sofa Table

Today I’m styling the hand built sofa table located in our loft space. It’s at the back of our sectional sofa and is a piece my husband built over 35 years ago.

It’s sleek, simple style works well with any décor style and the lower shelf makes it a fun piece to style.

Step one

First, you need to clear the area you wish to decorate. You will find you are more creative once all the clutter is gone.

Sofa Table For Spring – Greenery Option

The first option is the table filled with greenery and diy topiaries as the focal point. In addition, glass cloches, a mirror and candles create extra light in the space.

In order to brighten the darker lower shelf, I add a mirror, a cloche & a candle. The Angel Vine is real, however all the other greenery is faux.

Note: When using a candle on a lower shelf, you want to be sure the flame isn’t close to any item that could catch on fire. Antique Candle Co. candles are in heavy glass containers, making them a safe option in most situations. If in doubt, use a flameless battery operated candle such as these.

The top of the sofa table holds another glass cloche which is filled with faux lavender inside a thrifted handmade basket.

What do you do with a Broken Light Fixture? Turn it into a Lantern of course. You can see the tutorial on how I repurposed this piece last Spring.

Sofa Table with Birds & Books

For the second option to Decorate a Sofa Table for Spring, I chose this cute bird with stacks of books as the focus.

I used a variety of colored books to fill the bottom shelve because the cheerful colors help to brighten the dark shelf. In addition, a birds nest looks cute resting on the books edge.

In order to enhance this stack of coffee table books, I added a shiny brass container filled with lambs ear and white flowers. You may remember that is was a recent thrift store deal.

The third way to decorate a sofa table for Spring

For the third option, I used a combination of items from the previous 2 tables. There is a cute bird, books and greenery which all compliment the addition of soft Spring Tulips.

To add height, a chicken wire covered cloche houses a cute bird and bird nest.

Tulips are a favorite and this recent thrift store milk glass vase, looks priceless filled with the beauties. The vase was a great find from a recent Thrifting with the Gals excursion.

In addition, a few books and 2 DIY topiaries fill the lower shelf.

I look forward to hearing which of the tables is your favorite.

Now it’s time to hop over and see how Barbara at French Ethereal has styled her table and what tips she’s sharing with us today. Be sure to see all the other participants linked below as well.
