Check My Self
One thing I’m excited for in the new house is the very small landing at the bottom of our stairwell. I don’t have any pics of it as we aren’t living in the house yet (sorry). I really enjoy decorating tiny spaces. You can give them a bit of unexpected punch.
I have grand plans for the place, starting with my trusty watermelon console table…
I usually hang art above the console table but this time around I absolutely must, without question, put a mirror above it. You see currently, we have this mirror right above our stairwell that the previous tenants put up. It wasn’t ours to begin with so it’ll stay with the apartment.
But, said mirror, has saved me from walking out the door with unbrushed hair, makeup smirrored under my eyes, baby throw up down my shirt, mismatched socks, you name it. Sometimes I’m in such go mode that I get Josie all ready and completely forget to make myself semi-presentable until that miraculous little mirror reminds me. Nope, Kate, back it up and brush yo hair. I get to check my self. And we don’t want me to be the crazy lady of Hillsborough. So a mirror is in order.
I was absolutely hooked on this Ballard Mirror but I found out when ordering it for a client that it’s discontinued. BOO!!!
Back to the drawing board for me. I would love you forever if someone found this exact pair of mirrors at an estate sale for like $60 and thought “these are so Kate” and just lugged them home for me. I would hug you, squeal with delight and give you dinner and a bottle of champagne. So, please do keep me in mind when you are perusing estate sales.
