How To Style A Coastal Summer Vignette Using Thrifted Budget Friendly Items

On Sunday afternoon, after a successful flea market visit, I got so excited with my finds and incorporated one of them into my table scape right away. Instant gratification for sure! And I had to share of course. So after that I realized, that with only a few items you can go a long way. And the best yet: they don’t have to cost a lot. In fact, I’m going to show you real quick how to style a coastal summer vignette using thrifted budget friendly items. My table scape probably cost me less than 10€ / 11-12$ !

Unique planter

It all started with this cute tea pot I found for 1€ at the flea market on Sunday. It caught my eye from far away, it’s cute shape, the minty color, the bamboo handle. Just perfect! Not to mention the price!

You know, I’m not a tea drinker, I enjoy coffee way too much. But I knew right then, I would use it as a unique succulent planter for one of my many succulent babies. See, where the succulent sits, that is actually a tea sieve, it is a ceramic one and just sits on top of the pot. Perfect for a cute succulent! The color fits right in with my coastal theme, paired with the bamboo handle, call me crazy, but I think it was made to be in a coastal vignette!

Sea Shells

What would a coastal vignette be without sea shells!? You can find them for free at the beach, if you go on a vacation or live next to one.  They can be found for little money at thrift stores or craft stores as well.

I’ve accumulated quite the collection over the years, from trips and from our beach here and I bought the occasional one as well.

Bright Linen Base

I always like to have a base for my vignettes on my dining table. At the moment I am using sea-grass place mats, so I opted for a bright and airy linen base. In fact, the linen I used here are these Ikea dish towels. I just folded them and layered them as a table runner.  The white and blue is perfect for the coastal theme and I use them over and over, not only as dish towels!

Rope

I love incorporating rope into my summer decor, white or yute, it doesn’t matter, it is a great addition to a coastal style vignette! I simply knotted two strings of cotton rope together and placed them across the table. Rope is inexpensive and can later on be re-used for many things.

Candle Lights & Lanterns

Candles just add that coziness to any vignette and even a summer vignette looks nicer with some warm candles in it that can be lid at night. The lantern in my vignette isn’t actually a real one, it has no glass in it. I made it from broken frames, you can read more about it here.  And the candle light inside the lantern is just a jar with strings of beads at the top. Here are the details.

Wooden Decor Pieces

Like my wooden bird for example. I got it years ago at the clearance section in a store for less than 5$ I think. I painted it white so it would fit in better with my decor. It had a faded wooden color and wasn’t bad at all, but I like it better in white. Plus birds and sea decor just fit, right? Its height also gives it all a nice frame.

Well, as you can see, I used nothing really fancy to make this table scape, but it really adds an instant beach/coastal vibe to the whole room and I love it. And I can’t get over that tea pot. It has got to be the cutest tea pot ever! Even my husband liked it, and he’s usually not showing much interest in these things.

Have you ever found that item that got your creative juices flowing and that you couldn’t get your eyes off of?? I can’t be the only one!

Have a great day & Thanks for visiting!

    Truth be told: I probably have sea shells in every room of the house 🙂 Only found two shells I collected on Lewis last year in the pocket of my coat last Thursday. You cannot imagine how happy I was…

    Katrin this is lovely. So many different items that you would think have nothing to do with each other, and yet you were able to pull it all together and create this lovely vignette. I really like that jar with the beads around it. And I also have a teapot which looks awful, maybe I can paint mine and use it the same way.

    I LOVE this teapot, an amazing find indeed. Using this darling teapot as a planter and reusing some of your other items resulted in a very coastal look that says summer is here! Thank-you for sharing, your kreative vignettes are always inspiring!
