I finally bought it: a sofa table

I have been trying to find The Perfect Sofa Table for a long time. Years.

What a total pain in the a$$, y’all.

I had my heart set on working with RecycledBrooklyn.

They make beautiful furniture from reclaimed wood. I wanted to support local business while also avoiding shipping costs. Alas, they were unresponsive, something that is apparently typical.

I eventually found what I wanted on Etsy via Happy. Home. Austin.

And it’s here! I love it.

I am nesting

I’m nesting, but I am not pregnant. Got that? Blame January.

The only thing I’m expecting is a sofa table which I purchased after two years of looking and which has just shipped from Austin. CANNOT WAIT.

But now I want everything. I want my apartment to look nice. Complete.

Recently my focus is on the walls. I had to take down the Dubois mirrors which were propped-versus-hung in my bedroom. More pics from my apartment here and here and here.

The elusive sofa table!

Do you ever get the feeling that if you could just find/do/accomplish this one thing, your life would be instantly awesome? That’s how I feel right now about finding a sofa table or console to go behind my couch like in the photo below.

The sofa table of my desires continues to elude me. I sent a private message to this Etsy seller Recycled Brooklyn asking for a quote on a custom table. No reply. My guess is that his business is that strong. Good for him, if so.

This console is nice too (and reasonably priced) but the sellers are in the DC area. Shipping would just about double the cost of the item. I’m trying to find something in the tri-State area.

In case you’re hunting for a console too, here are others I have spotted:

  • Rogers console table via @NyenDesigns – I like the style, but it’s more than I am willing to spend
  • A sofa table from thezenartist
  • Wood from a salvaged Japanese barge. SO cool, but also ships from CA.
  • I should just buy this one.

My need for STUFF

Maybe it’s the appearance of a modest bonus. Perhaps it’s crossing “pay taxes” off my two do list. Whatever the cause, I suddenly have shopping on my brain.

At the top of my list? Two specific pieces of furniture. And given my [past?] tendency to buy every damn thing for my apartment from Crate & Barrel, I’m looking for unique things. Continue reading
