For some reason, it never occurs to me to buy multiples of home decor items. Jeans that fit well, I almost automatically buy two pairs, but I hadn’t considered doing the same thing in the home until I saw this clever DIY about buying multiple inexpensive rugs and fitting them together so it looks like one custom area rug. When there’s a pattern repeat, if you match it up well, the effect is almost flawless. That’s one thing for rugs, but this Haviland Table by DwellStudio proves the concept works with furniture, too.

One of these French-Deco-inspired beauties would make quite the end table, but putting three together for a coffee table effect heightens the drama and really calls attention to those gorgeous curved legs. The lesson is: Less isn’t always more. Sometimes more is more!

    WOW! Great idea, we need ALL the help we can get, we are DESPERATE!! We have to sell the house we are in, that means fixing A LOT bc there was no home inspection done when the house was bought! After getting the house into "selling" condition, we have to get it on the market, sell it, find a new one and move everything in…all before I give birth! There are NO shows on HGTV that come to Mississippi :( How about making us your first? I promise you will love all four and 1/2 of us!! lol! WE NEED HELP!!! This house is tinY, but could be great…for a smaller family, just needs work. We can only spend what we make on this house, on the NEW house…do you see the problem here?lol, O my…what a pickle..MmMm..pickle sounds good to a pregnant me, bye! PLEASE CONSIDER MISSISSIPPI!!!
