There's a new sheriff in town in my master bedroom.
Wait... that sounds all kinds of wrong. Get your minds out of the gutter!
There's a new decor-related sheriff in town in my master bedroom. Better?
Ta-da! A new full-length mirror. Shazam. Since we moved into our rental house, David and I haven't had a full-length mirror to use. The one we had in our old house's master bathroom was screwed into the wall, so we decided to leave it. Living without a full-length mirror basically meant that I had no clue if my shoes matched my outfit for the last two or so months. And it meant that I had nowhere to take selfie shots of my #ootd for Instagram. Totally kidding... kind of.
The mirror, which is from Kirkland's (you can find it here!), is black with a slightly rustic/worn sanded finish. We have so many light white pieces in our bedroom, I thought it was high time we brought in some black for some extra drama.
But, wait. There's more.
Oh yeah, this bad boy opens up to a jewelry armoire! This is kind of like ever renter/small-space-liver's dream, right?! When you live in a small space, combining function and decor is key. Especially with larger pieces like this, which take up a whole corner of a room. The key is to find furniture that meets more than one need in your life, like a side table with drawers or shelves for ample storage, a wall shelf that you can set items on top of and hang items below, a desk you can store items underneath. Decor pieces that can serve double-duty are almost necessary if you're a small-space dweller like me!
Clearly I don't have the world's most baller jewelry collection, but it's sooo nice to be able to see what accessories I'm working with. My jewelry organization approach before was to dump all of it in a basket and pick through it each morning. No bueno. I've found that I'm actually wearing more jewelry now that I can see all of my options!
And my previous jewelry dump-station basket is now the perfect resting spot for only the jewelry that I wear every day.
Whoever thought up this mirror + jewelry storage combo is the bomb.com. I love it!
And now for the obligatory "I'm-taking-pictures-of-a-mirror-so-here-I-am" shot.
And I literally have no clue why my husband's golf clubs are in my bedroom. No clue. Choose your battles.
Have you found any amazing double-duty functioning decor pieces lately?!
Psst! Thanks to all of you who have weighed in on my skin care/makeup questions. I am literally taking notes and hope to report back to y'all on my findings soon. If you haven't shared your two cents, please head over to the post and let me know what you think!
