Not Safe For May

Moving into my new place has been quite the adventure. I’m constantly on Pinterest exploring cool decorating or DIY ideas, which I like because I’m refining my own style. I’m figuring out my tastes. Thank you, Pinterest!

Mirrored Coffee Table

One of my first “big” purchases for the new apartment is this Mirrored Coffee Table. I say “one of” because Target had a BOGO 30% off deal and coupled with a few extra discounts/coupon codes, I was able to snag this beauty for just under $100.

The coffee table shipped pretty fast–I ordered it on the 20th, it shipped the 21st, and was delivered on the 25th. I was afraid that one of the parts would come cracked or broken because comeonallmirrors, but everything was packed nice and snug and it was perfect out of the box! Assembly was straightforward and simple, especially since I had a nice boyfriend to help me out. But I bet I probably could of managed without him. (Just kidding Ian–you know I need you and you are perfect and I love you.)

I love the mirrored surface; it’ll help bounce light around my tiny living room and make it seem brighter. The lines on this thing are insanely chic. It seriously looks like a fancy schmancy designer piece. Yeah, there are some areas where the glue squeezed itself out, but those are in the more non-visible parts of the table so I don’t mind one bit. For the price and the look you get, it is totally worth it. I like how tall it is too–perfect “kick your feet up and watch The Mindy Project” height.

I’m looking into getting a tray or some kind of mat to have on top of the table to prevent scratches. Right now I’m setting remotes and cups on Ikea instructions. Fingerprints are easily seen, but it’s nothing a cloth swipe can’t fix. Plus, if you want luxury, you have to work for it. Get me Armani, he’s on the phone, too slow, you’re not going to Paris.

My other Target purchase is this Tufted Loveseat that is going to replace that Ikea sofa. It hasn’t arrived yet, but you can bet your pretty little butts I’ll be posting about it when it does!

      Thank you–I’m amazed at how I’ve stopped spending money on make-up and clothes because I’m saving up for home pieces. This has never happened before!

    I love the mirrored look for furniture. I saw a bed stand once that I really wanted. It was really damn expensive, though!

      Me too! That’s why I had to jump at Target’s BOGO promo. 🙂 They have a whole line of mirrored furniture that I want!

    Oh I love that mirrored table! (I accidentally typed tabled lol) I’d probably use it as a quick check on my make-up before leaving the house. Haha

    Cute blog you have here! I’m heading to your FB page to like it! Also your quick “about me” on your sidebar made me laugh 🙂

    I love mirrored dressers and tables! Your new place is gonna be fabulous. I’m moving in January and it’ll be the first time I have a lot of time to dedicate a lot of thought to my apartment decor. Found you at BBN. New follower 🙂
