Last week when I featured susan’s beautiful buffet decor, I mentioned that I love it so much that I was inspired to create my own version.  Susan wrote to say she hoped I would show y’all my version…So, this post is dedicated to Susan at Living Rich on Less.

To refresh your memory, this is Susan’s buffet decor

I just love the sparkly, simple elegance of this vignette.

I don’t have the space for a full-sized buffet, but I still wanted a surface to be able to have a pair of lamps in the dining room.  This past summer, I bought a console from Hobby Lobby.  It was on sale, and with my gift card, I only paid $30 for it.  Not bad..

My lamps were in the garage in the donate pile until l found some pretty, new ivory lamp shades for $5 each at TJ Maxx.  Now I love the lamps.

I like that the lamp base coordinates with my Ballard’s knock off mirror.

And, since my console is so much smaller than a buffet, I had to improvise on the hurricane vases.

Working with items that I already had, I turned a pair of crystal candle stick holders upside down.  Then placed a votive holder on top.

For the greenery, I’m using an artificial ivy that I’ve had for awhile.

It will do for now, but I would like to replace it with a live plant.

Put all of the elements together, and here is my version of Susan’s buffet vignette.

Thanks for the inspiration, Susan!

How have you been inspired by other bloggers?
