Book side table – free (I already had them)

Hello.  Yes, I’m back.  I missed you too.

I am so excited about the changes I have made around my apartment in the last few months. My apartment was starting to feel a bit too much like a West Elm catalog, so I began adding whimsy accents.

Here is one of my first additions: Dia De Los Muertos sugar skull ornaments on a jewelry tree.  For some reason, I have always been drawn to the bright colors and gothic themes of the Dia De Los Muertos holiday.  When I mentioned this project to family/friends, everyone thought I had gone off the deep end (until they saw the finished product).  I ordered these beautiful handmade sugar skull ornaments on Etsy from a designer with a wonderful Dia De Los Muertos themed Etsy shop.  Then I picked up this jewelry tree from Urban Outfitters.  I placed this piece on top of  a side table I created out of books next to my reading chair.

What are your thoughts – cute or weird?
