Who: Carol What: Mounted Antler/Mirror Duo Why: Carol and her boyfriend wanted a whimsical piece of art. Antlers add dimension to a typically flat space and are currently a hot ticket item. Vendors are selling unmounted racks for $35-90! Carol got this antler/mirror combo for a steal at $30. I'd love to hang this mirror above my dresser and hang my necklaces on the antlers. It would keep my jewelry tangle free and create an interesting multi- dimensional display.
Who: Ashley What: Wooden Trunk Why: Ashley just moved into a new apartment that lacks storage. She found this solid wooden trunk and couldn't believe the price, $25. Too good to be true! She wants to put the trunk in her bedroom--a wise decision. This would look great at the foot of your bed, or even as a nightstand if your bed is low. The lines of this piece are simple and timeless, as is the medium brown stain. Trunks of all shapes and sizes are great storage solutions because they're an interesting focal point in a room and cleverly store all your bulky sweaters or guest towels! ~ Alison Images: Alison Brislin
