{Inspiration Friday} Library Tables

Whether or not I paint my dining table, I still need to style the space — and if there’s one thing I love it’s a dining table styled as a library table. Since I already use my dining table as my desk, I think it’s more than appropriate to consider styling that area as a fancy library space. I went ahead and collected some inspirational images so we’re all on the same page (pun intended).

Um, yeah, so we probably don’t even have to look at any more photos because that one is EVERYTHING. But let’s do it anyway.

Gorgeous, right? (Psst! There are lots more on my Library Table Pinterest Board!) Now I obviously don’t have a huge room filled with windows or bookcases, but I think my little table can get a similar look. The only problem is I don’t really have a bunch of extra books laying around…

I have one trillion magazines.

Therefore I’m gonna need to get this library table look with magazines instead of books.

My magazine hoarding collection consists mainly of design-related titles, and since I’m OCD extremely organized they’re in chronological order, in mint condition, and in piles by publication, so I’m pretty sure I can get this library look by using what I have.

I can tell you don’t believe me. But look at this!

Those magazines look so architectural. And sexy! I’m dying over those oversized black pendant shades, too.

And then there’s THIS photo:

It’s only a side table, but it’s the same style as my dining table with a marble top, styled with a little stack of magazines and a lovely floral arrangement. SOLD.

And now it’s time to play dress up with my dining table.
