I mentioned that I wanted to find something to go beneath it and today I’m back with some options!
Ideally the table will act as a vanity but let’s be honest – it’ll probably end up being another place for me to display all of my tchotchkes haha
My first option is CB2’s Peekaboo console table:
I love how it would visually disappear into the wall keeping the focus on the art. I’ve lusted over this table for a while now but it’s a little too short and more than I'd like to spend on something you can barely see haha It also seems very delicate and I’d probably have a mini heart attack if the acrylic got scratched (which it inevitably will)!
My next option is West Elm’s sculpted geo console table:
It’s also over my budget (in case you haven't noticed, I have champagne taste on a beer budget haha) but I love the funky drawers and the extra storage it would provide for hair and makeup accessories in case I decide to use the spot as a vanity.
The most budget-friendly option would be the console table we have behind our couch in our living room:
The dimensions are almost perfect (it could be a little wider) and the gold would add a little warmth to our bedroom. Unfortunately, I only have one table (can someone please figure out how to clone furniture?!) and I really like how it looks behind our couch…even if it is a little too short width-wise.
I’ve been checking out thrift stores and keeping an eye on Craigslist but I haven’t seen anything pop up lately. Well, that’s not true. I saw the CB2 on Craigslist for $75 (!!!) but I was too late and it sold :(
Another budget-friendly option would be to hang a shelf (like the LACK floating shelf from IKEA) on the wall instead of putting a table in front of it.
I could put some baskets underneath it which could hold all the extra pillows I tend to pile up on our bed. It's shallower than a table which would leave extra room for one of our doors to swing open too. However, we have 3 picture ledges on the other side of the wall so maybe another shelf would be too much?
What are your thoughts?
