It’s Monday and I’m very excited. My mom will hopefully arrive safely this afternoon and OMG I got sooo lucky over the weekend. Sorry not “the lucky” you are thinking! I’m talking furniture 😉
I mentioned on Friday that I have been coffee table obsessed and just when I was ready to cave in and splurge…what do you know! I have seriously been looking for 2 years on craigslist and every time I found one, it was either too far away or we were on vacation. The hubby was unable to score an opium table for me when I was in Germany. Somebody had posted one with matching side tables (I hate sets by the way) while I was gone for $30. What a steal and somebody else got it. I was upset for months.

Wouldn’t an opium table like this look beautiful in my living room? And a wooden coffee table would be a little bit more durable then my second choice.
Well, I was able to score my second choice and that for only $25, I can’t complain! Hey, I can’t even get a pedicure or great new shoes for that price.
I’m so excited. I’ve been doing a happy dance all weekend.
Haha, the only stupid thing is that I have to take new pictures of our living room “house tour page”.
Here are some photos and I’m so not upset about the opium table anymore!
|Thank you to everybody for not buying this beautiful coffee table since August!|
I’m in LOVE with this table.
|Have you seen this yellow tea light holder pop up everywhere in my photos? Well it’s because I love it!
I can’t stop moving it around
I first wanted to strip the fake brass off the accents on the table but I will leave it. Surprisingly I like the gold.
And my second score was another set of matching mirrors. This time they weren’t free like my last set (which you can see here). I paid $50 for both. And since I have a mirror addiction, I had to have them. I have so many mirrors that I’m not even using and can’t part with any of them. I’m a lamp, rug and mirror hoarder.
I was thinking about using them as vanity mirrors. Unfortunately I don’t have a double vanity, bummer! But maybe I can use one in my powder room and another in my master bathroom. Maybe I’ll have double vanities in our next home (if it ever happens). I’m thinking about painting them in coral, red or another fun color. Lets see. I’m not sure what color I will paint my powder room yet.
So, how was your weekend? Did you find anything great?
I’m off to pick up my mom from airport soon.
I’m planning on spending lots of quality time with her, so lets hope I’m still able to blog 3 times a week.
If not, cut me some slack (wink wink) ok?
Talk to you on Wednesday und guten Tag.
