Yanna's "Before" and "After" Coffee Table

I was very excited to start the coffee table assignment. Admittedly I love my coffee table by have had no idea what to do with it! So this lesson was greatly appreciated. 

The table is great! It's large so we often eat on it and has a great mid-century style to it. My boyfriend and I lugged it across Manhattan and have never regretted it.

So I stuck to the "power of three" rule when creating my layout. Between my BF and me have a few books that personally love so i started there. One stack had graffiti and logo books the other had the cream and navy books. For bling I used a bronze teapot as a vase and two tall prayer candles. In NY they are a cheap indulgence. 

For a tray I used an oversized circle mirror. This was great for holding coasters and remotes and vinyl toys!

For my floral arrangement I keep it very simple. I'll probably update this however with a bunch that's a bit brighter and more festive now that I've decided on the books and other elements of the table.
