A new piece of furniture

I got a new piece of furniture a couple of weeks ago. 


It lives in the bathroom.  I know that is kind of odd, putting furniture in the bathroom, but there is a place in my bathroom where it is completely out of the way and fits perfectly.  I had had this piece there for years...
Problem is, it became the place for me to throw clothes instead of hanging them up.  I know I should have enough discipline to just not do that, but I don't.  So getting rid of it seemed to be the best option.  Plus I had some storage pieces in my closet that were taking up a whole wall and I wanted to get rid of at least one of them to de-clutter my closet. 

I've been looking for a piece like the one I bought for a while.  For the longest time, they always had one at Tuesday Morning or Homegoods.  Then when I really got ready to buy it, I couldn't find one to save my life.  Or I should say, I couldn't find one at a reasonable price, to save my life.  Sometimes these stores think that this mirrored furniture is made of platinum instead of mirrors!  This one was no exception.  Here's the original price tag and then the mark down...
It was then marked down to $249, but because they had a big Memorial Day sale, it was an additional 25% percent off, plus I had a coupon for an additional 15% off, so I got it for a grand total of $159.  Now that's the kind of bargain I've been looking for!

I actually didn't realize until I got it home, out of the box and started putting it together that it had tons of jewelry storage.  This was really a bonus because I had jewelry hanging in my closet, on a shelf in my closet, in a jewelry box in the bedroom, and in a dresser drawer in the bedroom.  This has organized all of!



It even opens up on both sides for hanging necklaces...

The bottom drawers are big enough to store the extra toiletries, which is what I really wanted it for.  Apparently I'm a toiletry hoarder...

The bottom drawer organizes my nail polish (though half of those probably need to be tossed)...

I was really lucky because this piece matches my bedroom mirrored pieces almost exactly, so if I ever want to use them together, they should work fine.

Now, if I can finish my other stupid bathroom projects that I started last summer.  I just lost steam, but hopefully I will complete some of those projects in the next couple of weeks. 

Sorry, this post was all iphone photos, because I was being lazy!!!!

I love it :) I need to get to organizing my jewelry before we move here in a few weeks because it is in a horrible state of disorganization. I love your toiletry hoarder comment because I laughed when I saw all the deodorant and the soap before I even saw the comment :) Well in the case of a world ending event you will definitely be smelling good !!!!
