Decorating with SideboardsIn my home, my favorite pieces of furniture are my sideboards, buffets and sofa tables!   I use them for a variety of things ~ displaying family photos; showcasing some of my favorite treasures or collections; or temporarily setting them up as a bar or buffet when we entertain. But by far, my favorite thing to do is to change them up and decorate them each season and for every holiday!

Buffets and sideboards don’t have to be expensive!  Almost all of the big furniture stores carry them and if you’re a do-it-yourselfer, you can find them at flea markets or garage sales, and stain or repaint them to suit your personal taste.  Here are some beautiful pieces and different designs to inspire you!

This beautiful Crème Brulee sideboard can be used in the dining room or kitchen! It’s narrow too which is perfect for tight places!

Sofa tables are less expensive than larger buffets or china cabinets and they’re pretty easy to style!  First, remove everything from the wall – you want to start with a blank canvas. Next, hang pictures or a nice framed mirror, and then just add a lamp and accessories and voilà.

I use a three-shelf server in my foyer, similar to this one. It gives me  lots of decorating and display options!

This nice little sideboard would work well in any room! Use as a sofa table in the living or family room; or as an entry way table in your foyer!

Perfect example of a little piece you could find almost anywhere and paint or stain to your liking!

This coastal inspired piece is more decorative than functional.  Not much height on buffet but beautiful nevertheless!

This piece is similar to an old-fashioned dry sink without the recessed top!
