26 favorite fixer upper vignettes + tablescapes

A vignette, in decorating terms, is a small grouping of objects on a shelf/table/bookcase, that tell a story about you and your home. A well-styled vignette is pleasing to the eye and adds a bit of charm and character to your space. It’s fairly safe to say that there are few people who can design a vignette quite like Chip & Joanna Gaines, of Fixer Upper fame.

Today, I’m sharing my favorite Fixer Upper vignettes. These are so inspiring, and I love seeing themes emerge as to what makes a great vignette (but that’ll have to wait for another post)! Enjoy!

anthropologie-inspired ceramic platter {a tutorial}

anthropologie tray

I always love a good Anthropologie find. When I saw this striped tray the other day, I loved it’s simplicity and versatility. I also knew I could make my own for a small fraction of the cost…

Materials:

  • Ceramic Tray
  • Paintbrush
  • Acrylic or Ceramic Paint

striped tray tutorial

Step 1: I wanted to freehand my lines, but wanted a little bit of a guide to work with. I knew I wanted three lines going around the tray, so I started by putting three dots in each corner, plus three dots on the long side of the tray. This way, I could still get that freehand effect, but with a little help…

Step 2: Add a bit of paint to your brush (yes, I did switch out brushes…the paintbrush held more paint than the foam brush did), and carefully draw your lines. Let dry, and touch up as needed.

Let dry completely, and that’s it!

10 best sites for affordable wall art

affordable wall art

Wall art. Sometimes you want to DIY it (see this DIY wall art compilation, as well as this one), and sometimes, for whatever reason, you just want to buy it. But, you don’t want to buy something a) that looks better online than in person or b) overly expensive. So, today, I’m sharing my 10 favorite sites for affordable, stylish wall art. I’ve purchased from most of these sites myself, and they all have great selections and even occasional sales (or free shipping)!

Let’s get started….

wall art

canvas art

I love World Market for stylish and affordable canvas options.  You can get a nice size canvas for around $100, and they often run sales/discount codes so you can get even more bang for your buck!

botanical

If you know what to search for, eBay can be an often overlooked gold mine of affordable art. The above set of botanical prints was found by searching “botanical wall art”, and the below geometric print was found by searching “geometric wall art”. It may take some time to find what you’re looking for, but it’s definitely possible!

wayfair

wayfair artWayfair is a newer find of mine, but one with a large and affordable collection, like this wreath print and abstract canvas!

Multicolored-Bird-Wall-Art-BL6221 Rowan-Framed-Prints-BL4620

Another favorite for affordable wall art? Birch Lane! The selection isn’t as large as some other sites, but their quality is great and they often run sales or other promotions.

eat-well-travel-often-on-gold-prints

treat-yo-self-gold-turquoise-prints

Society6 is one of my favorite places for art prints. They boast great prices AND all their designs are created by small business owners.

Minted.com is always a go-to of mine for affordable art, and with lots of size and framing options, and plenty of filters to find exactly what you’re looking for, it’s a great starting point when you want something fresh and new!

Fashion+Framed+Print Navy+Coral+Framed+Print

While you do need to sign up for a Joss & Main account to browse, they have a great selection of prints and canvases to suit all tastes and styles!

You also need an account to shop on Zulily, and stock changes often, but it’s a great place for a quick check-in every few days to see what’s new. It’s similar to a daily deal site, so prices tend to be fairly low.

Overstock may require a little digging, but there are great deals to be had if you practice a little patience (like this set of three wrapped canvases).

Target is another great shop for affordable art…they have a huge selection, and you can return in stores if you’re not happy with your purchase. 

I’ve shared some of my favorites, I’d love to know what YOUR go-to is for affordable wall art!
