This will make your room more inviting and give a focal point to a room. If you’ve got a console table that needs some sprucing up let me inspire you to decorate your table behind the couch.
Recently I built a table to fit behind the couch and now it was time for me to add the decor. Most of the decor in my family room is white, beige, and grey so I wanted to add a little color to the room and a little different texture.

Adding decor to the table
I started decorating the console table by adding 3 books and bookends that I recently made.
The bookends are wall brackets that I painted white and gave a brown finish to and then sanded it down for an aged look.
Then I wanted to add some color so I grabbed a topiary that I had lying around. I added rope to the base. Adding the topiary gave me height and color.
I then added a tall pitcher and added flowers to it. I added a candle and loved the outcome.
The decor I added
This console table didn’t take a lot of items and everything I used I had lying around the house.
- IKEA Topiary
- Pitcher with flowers
- Macrame Coaster
Like I said, everything I added I had lying around I just updated them. I took 3 hard cover books and attached fabric to the outside to give a French cottage look.
The IKEA Topiary I hot glued some rope to the base. I added some fresh cut flowers from my garden to the pitcher.
The bookend I made a while back and used them here.
The candle is a homemade candle and the macrame coaster is something I made while watching Netflix.
How to decorate a console table on a budget
Take items from around your house and give them new life. Take a look in a closet or your garage for items that are just sitting there. Hop onto Pinterest or Instagram and become inspired to refresh old items. This will save you a fortune decorating your home.
