Mercury Glass Tablescape

Are you tired of seeing posts about this table yet? No matter what it is, I am never fully happy with any decorating arrangement. I revisit decorated areas of my house constantly, moving and shifting items. Eventually, I get bored and just tell myself to walk away and move on to something else. Professional designers, decorators, and other people who happen to be born with the decorator’s eye can just throw together a vignette, a tablescape, or an entire room and it looks natural, effortless, and stylish.

These are from Joann Fabrics and have LED lights. Along …
