Farmhouse Coffee Table Vignette

I created a centerpiece for the coffee table using a vintage metal milk bottle carrier.


I didn't clutter the coffee table,    but kept it simple by just placing a few things on it.       

I   decorated under the coffee table by layering a small pink fur rug over the existing blue and pink floral rug      Then,   I sat a hand painted wooden sign on top of the layered rugs.

The metal milk bottle carrier has compartments for 6 bottles of milk.    I filled the end compartments with 4 milk bottles that have a bouquet of flowers in each of them.      I left the big center compartment empty.    Why?........I wanted to make a pig pen for my cute little pink!

I tied some fabric rag strips on the metal piece below the handle.......

Then,    I made my pig a comfy place to lay using vintage crocheted pieces.

I tied a wooden number on each end of the carrier.   
  To add the final touches,    I lit a candle and placed a metal sign that says   "everyday is a fresh start" on the coffee table.  

In the background,     you can see a sneak peek of the Valentine design I created on top of the piano.    I'll do a post on it soon with lots of close ups and details!
