It's T-Minus 5 days to Christmas and I gotta ask: does anyone else have visions of furniture dancing in your head? I can't tell you how many times I have asked Caleb for furniture for my Christmas/ birthday/ justbecauseitstuesday present. This year, I'm hoping he'll approve setting aside funds for a headboard. Or a new armchair. Or another plant stand. (I know: I'm trouble).
The good news is, if you are hankering for home decor that doesn't exactly fit under the tree, StyleMutt Home has some handsome new pieces in the garage shop!
In all my pre-Christmas dreaming, I stumbled across this dashing (albeit pricey) devil. There's no way I'd be willing to pay such a steep asking price, but I was inspired nonetheless. So when I first saw this chipped white & gold dresser on Craigslist, my wheels started turning.
Pretty close to the inspiration yes?
Inspired by the double-breasted pulls of the inspiration piece, I added whistle pulls that match the brass-capped tapered legs. The greige color was a custom mix using some leftover paint from our Navy Yard Condo client. (Waste not, want not!)
Although it looks like 5, this piece actually has only 4 dovetailed drawers - one is a faux double-front with extra deep storage for bulky sweaters and such.
And on the underside of the drawers, you can find the original maker's mark. Apparently this fellow is Swedish!
The styling for this piece was especially fun. I really felt like I was channeling my inner Urban Outfitter with the colorful art and moon phase chalkboard.
But the best part is this white and gold cactus by GoodNight Light.
Yeah, you heard right - that cactus lights up!
It is safe to leave on for hours at a time and made of a shatterproof vinyl which, to my surprise, feels more like a matte porcelain in person! It would of course be adorable (and safe!) in a nursery (one day ;) but for now it's the perfect light to leave on for Thor since we're not getting home before sunset on these short winter days.
If you are still looking for a last-minute gift for any little-ones on your list, I highly recommend browsing the quirky inventory at GoodNight Light to see if any of their quality products pique your interest.
And if you are local and looking for an affordable MCM tallboy (for you or anyone else on your list ;) this one is in our shop!
