Sprucing up with glass

April 10, 2013

The weather is warming up in southern Ohio. Now is a good time to update your home’s decor to welcome the Spring season.  Since my budget is tight, I am holding off on the big project I hope to complete in the future.

In the meantime, I am doing some low cost Spring spruce ups by adding a few accessories made of glass.  I think the transparency of bottles, jars and other items can add a fresh feel to rooms. The color can be vibrant or subdued.

The sparkle of glass reflects light and brightens all kinds of spaces and it is easy to find. Think stores like TJ Maxx, Home Goods, Pier 1, Hobby Lobby or JoAnns Fabrics. Here are some examples from our home. I hope they give you a few ideas for your home.

This grouping of bell- shaped jars filled with shells, reminds me of the beach. (Which I live no where near...) The grouping is now sitting on our kitchen table.

This beaker like jar came from a large grocery store. It helps to hide the cut-out for the cable box wires.

An inexpensive piece of beveled glass can protect and add shimmer to a wood (or wood-like) table. Pier 1 is a great source for glass table tops.
