Here's a look at the vignette I created for my master bedroom. I did not buy anything for the vignette except the tray which I got at Ikea for $7. I plan to paint the tray and get a piece of plexi glass and some wrapping or scrap paper to put on the bottom so I can change up the look when as often as I'd like without repainting.
I added three candles of various shapes, sizes and heights. All of them I had laying around the house. I found the white candle stick at a thrift store for a dollar and sprayed it my favorite - heirloom white. (Find the tutorial for the rope pillar candle here.)

On the opposite side to kind of balance out the space I added a small lamp. Then I put a small square mirror which my husband used to propose ("This is the face I want to wake up to everyday for the rest of my life...") eight years ago and in front of that leaned up a wooden "V" which I purchased
months and months ago, but had never done anything with -- poor thing is still lacking paint.
I also had this brown "JESUS" sign that was my grandparents. I remember staring at it for long periods of time as a little girl trying to figure out what it said between those little pieces of wood. When my grandparents recently passed away, I got it and it always reminds me of them. Since it was kind of dated I decided to spray paint and sand it down a bit to make it match my motif.

The idea behind my vignette is things that have special meaning to me. I wanted to display them all in the master bedroom, but separately they weren't really working. Bringing them together on a tray as a vignette they work.
Other ideas for bedroom vignettes include:
- Family or wedding pictures
- Perfume or cologne bottles
- Antique figures, buddahs, etc
- Green plants such as a topiary
- Ring holder
- Small jewelry stand
- Unique jars, bottles, or colored glassware
- Small clocks
