So when it came time to pick out some new nightstands, I knew I wanted something a little heftier and with great storage. And bigger can definitely be beautiful y'all! And glamorous. And fabulous. And old hollywood. And even a bit manly.
Yes, manly. I really have the best hubs, pretty sure he would let me paint our ceilings hot pink and paint the floors chevron black and white if I wanted. So I like to throw him a bone (or antler) every now and then. That's why I took a "his and hers" approach with the decor on our side tables but still incorporated the oh so beautiful quality of mirrored furniture.
I pulled a little inspiration to get me going...
Alright so now I have a plan, time to buy some tables! Ummm woah woah woah, how much???
Mirrored furniture is quite coûteux! (expensive just sounds better in French, doesn't everything?!)
After scouring Target, HomeGoods and my normal culprits, I thought why not check eBay. I really imagined furniture would be quite expensive on eBay (not like shipping pillow inserts), but was surprised to see it's not that bad. That's when I found this set for only $560 for them both, including shipping. Overall mirrored, crystal knobs and storage galore. Sold!
You may have already seen the tables in this post, but here's a little reminder of how they turned out:
Complete with some of his summer reading essentials, an antler and cotton and wine decor!
Tulips, my great-grandmother's jewelry plate and my favorite books make for a great "hers" table.
