I walked over to pick up a package from the office of our apartment and I decided to take the short cut through the pool. I reached down to feel the water. Cold, as usual. I stood up and aimed my gaze to the door of the office, but there was something in the way. Furniture. Tons of it. Two round kitchen tables, a set of 8 beautiful chairs, bar stools, a huge coffee table, two consoles, and a BIG fat mirror. Plus some other stuff. I walked over and started looking. It was all up for auction. $70 for a pottery barn style console. $80 for a mirror. WHAT!?!? I put some bids down and went to get my packages. I found out that the office, after redecorating, would be throwing away all of the furniture if it didn’t find a home!
The next day I brought our new neighbor Jordan over to take a look. She bid on some lamps. I spoke with Brina in the office and she said they’d be closing it at 3pm. We’ll it was 2:30 and Jordan convinced me to camp out and stalk the “up” bids. In the end, I landed my 5 ft. mirror I’ve always wanted [vain, I know, but I love huge clunky mirrors!!], a china cabinet, and [Chad's pick] the pottery barn style console.
Do we have room for this stuff? Not really. Are we making it work? YES! Check it out:
I love the leather inlay that looks a little worn.
I love displaying my fan that has been sitting in the corner of our room with no place to go.
The black box is our wedding album.
This mirror is too big for pictures. But, here is an idea of the frame. What would YOU do with a 5′ mirror??
