25 Decorative Accents Under $50 to Style a Coffee Table

Styling your coffee table just right can really change a room, and luckily with a little creativity, it doesn't have to break the bank. Take time to browse favorite shops like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and Target; search resale sites like eBay, Chairish, and Etsy; hit local flea markets or sidewalk sales; and bring home mementos from vacations like sea shells, rocks, and pine cones to create a personal and conversation-starter display. Here are 25 items under $50 to get you started.
