STAND BY ME

“Then his heart made up his mind.”
― Lindsay Mattick, Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World’s Most Famous Bear

I need want new nightstands.  Or nightstand.  I can’t decide which.  While perusing the webs [sticky mutha’s they are] I got caught by quite a few “mis-matched” nightstand combinations.  And just when I feel like I could make an “un-pairing” work– I get called back to symmetry.  shaun-smith-bedroom

So, where do we go from here?  That’s the million dollar question.  I’d like to think I could hack it for a least a little while– the odd pairing– but I enjoy pairs.  2 chairs, 2 pillows, two boobs– you get the point.

I found this beauty for only $129 on Overstock.com and I really REALLY want to pull the trigger but that’s $129 x 2.  Ok, another thing you already knew– I’m cheap.  So right now when I have a perfectly good brass square base [thrifted] and beautiful broken marble slab [free] sitting in my garage along with this faux malachite console in storage [thrifted], I can’t make sense of spending money when I don’t HAVE to.  stiletto and stitch console table

But when I see mirrored consoles like the one below I get all gooey inside and I’m ready to spend all my pennies.

What will it be?  Matching pairs?  Unmatched beauty in two pieces that coordinate well?  Comment and let me know what you think.  PS:  Here’s a picture of the room for reference:
