Blech...

Do you ever have one of those days where you are feeling pretty good about yourself... Maybe you have a cute outfit on or pretty new shoes... Then you glance at yourself in a store window or a display mirror and realize you look like crap? Today is one those days.
I went to Target at lunch and I found a bunch of basic clothing items that fit cute and some stuff for the fiance. Feeling pretty productive. Then I went to the home goods section, of course, and walked past a mirror. Yick. My nose was red (who knows why), I've got a huge pimple on my cheek, and my hair is being weird today. Grrr...
But I did see these beauties...

Mmmm... lovely, no? They look much prettier in person. And ironic, considering I was mad at the mirror above them for making me cranky. I am thinking these will look fab as side table in our bedroom. I want to paint the walls a nice, deep gray, but not too dark. I think these will really pop. BUT, I brought home a tray last year like this one from Target:



I then decided that I have nowhere to put this tray and I took it back. After I took it back the fiance says "Thank god you realized that was hideous". He would not have said anything had I decided to keep it, so he may keep his opinions to himself on the tables. Then again, the tables are much larger and more attention seeking than just a tray. Plus, he will have to use one of them. I suppose I should wait until I have the rest of my furniture and the room painted before I start buying new things... so sad.

Dude. This is one of those days when the mirrors should be cloaked in drapecloth.

I love the tray.

I'm still torn on mirrored tables. One day I love them, the next day I'm undecided. The jury is still out. By the time I'm warmed up to them, they'll be out of style (but on clearance). =)

I love anything mirrored so I say go for the tables, but, wait until you decide on a paint color. All too often I've bought something to later find it just doesn't "go"!

I think the table would look great against the grey walls! You could add a cream sheepskin pillow to your bed and some sort of natural element on the mirrored table (like a clear glass vase of antlers, or beautiful branches) for a rustic/lavish combination. Good luck!

I have those days more than I would like to count- you think I would realize just to stay away from mirrors haha
