Happy Friday! I am home with both my littles today for Good Friday. We will be playing lots of Star Wars and Legos. Maybe I will be able to sneak in a few minutes to thumb through these glossies.
I went on a little glossy magazine binge the other day. I stopped by the magazine aisle to pick up the two magazines featuring projects from one of my blogging faves, Cape27. Then, I spotted the new HGTV mag, which I love. Then, the clouds parted and the sun shined gloriously down on a copy of Domino, which is back with special editions. Family Circle was only $1 packaged with Ladies Home Journal.
I love magazines. I spend so much time online that it is nice to do some offline browsing, I mean page flipping. Although, I have remarked more than once that I wished there was a pin it button in magazines and catalogs.
My glossy binge gives me an opportunity to share one of my favorite new pieces of furniture. I picked up this plant stand on my last Ikea trip. It was the perfect height and narrow enough to fit under the window across from my desk. I love the white on white action happening in this area of the room.
On the bottom there is a super narrow shelf. I balanced my decorative boxes on it (seen here in my Family room mood board). They are supposed to go in the family room, but I needed something for this spot in the studio. First room done gets all the good stuff… and gives me an excuse to find something else for the family room.
I am using the top as a combo plant stand and magazine holder. The stack of magazines are all the ones I have purchased so far this year (including the issue of Storage featuring Jen from I Heart Organizing).
Just yesterday I went shopping with my mom for her birthday. I found this amazing brass water ladle at the thrift store. I popped my small flowering plant inside. It’s the perfect accent piece for the plant table.
I bought some Brasso today to clean it up a bit, but not too much. I love the patina. And the extra long, interesting handle is amazing! The larger aqua ceramic pot is from Home Depot.
So are you bingeing on anything lately? Any magazines you love and can’t go without?
I look forward to a weekend of glossy reading :)
