When I shared the bedroom photos a few weeks ago, I mentioned I still had a corner to share. In particular, the space to the right of the fireplace.
See that piece of birch on top of the cabinet on the right-hand side? Well that is actually a recent find at IKEA…
I spotted this mirror (MOLGER) in the as-is section at the Ohio IKEA. Any one else stalk the as-is section like a crazy person? I get lucky on the weekdays but since it’s almost impossible to get there during the week (it’s about 30 minutes away from Covington), I get extra pumped to find something on a busy Saturday. At full price it’s $30, so the $22 isn’t a huge savings a la my kitchen rug, but it was enough to come home with me. And this one was actually a display, so no dings or dents to feel bummed about.
Here’s the MOLGER in action in its bedroom corner.
I love that it’s birch (to match the birch accents throughout the room, like my smile print) and that is has a deep shelf to hold my little knick knacks. The bunny up there currently is a gift from Aaron. My Mom calls me Emily Bun Bun (ack) so I tend to be attracted to its ceramic siblings.
Now, before you say, “Emily, the mirror is hung too high!” I know, guys. I KNOW. But I had to. Here’s why:
The MOLGER needed to be hung high to work with its sister frame next door. Otherwise, it would have looked all wack-a-doo and misplaced. Everything is looking all coordinated if I do say so myself.
And to go with the whole gently used theme here, I also have a new-to-me TV. I have been searching high and low for a small white TV for this room for under $200. Why are white TVs so hard to find? I came across a 19″ refurbished TV on eBay for $136. I didn’t think that was too bad.
I have one more thing to complete in this room and then I am done-zo.
p/s: I just wanted to give a huge, HUGE thank you for your support in my Apartment Therapy contest. I checked votes today and I am in the 500′s. That is insane. I want to do a larger post about it this week, but I did want to acknowledge how appreciative and happy I am to have made it this far.
