getting there

Remember my console table that my husband and I built?  If not, scroll down a few posts to read all about it and see the plans.  I have been trying to find the right decor to compliment the table and haven't had as much luck as I would like.
I bought these mirrors on sale for $9 each at Target a few months back thinking they would go in my bedroom but that didn't work out so I painted them black and used them for this table.  I think they add some height to the room.  Target now sells these mirrors in black for $20 /each.
Next up was a lamp.  I needed some light and have been drooling over fillable base lamps for some time but they were always too big for my tables.  And then, I came across this one at Pier 1 (on sale) and had to have it.  I love the thought of being able to fill it with different items for seasons and holidays. 

I think the decor on this table will change frequently with the seasons but I wanted a few staples to work around.  As you can see in the picture I have a St. Patrick's Day theme going on.  It's a little scarce because I don't have many St. Patrick's Day decorations.  It seems like everyone around here is already putting up Easter decorations.  So that's it for now.  When I get more done I'll share again.
