January goal

Lots of folks are blogging their decorating goals for 2013. I'm just gonna go with January. You see I am old enough to know that; a) I am old b) expensive crap like dishwashers and cars break as soon as you commit to something else expensive c) I will crap out or forget half of the stuff on my list if I make it a year long.
So here is the January goal.
Table # 1
Table #2
Table # 3, wait that's not a table its a pile of freakin' stuffed animals.
 My husband hates stuffed animals and my limit is around three so the huge tiger is endangered. Back to the plan. I need another end table because no one will sit where there is no side table.
I am leaning toward one of these.

At $149 from West Elm the Martini table is a contender.

I love this Moroccan stool from Wisteria but it might take the funky factor in this room over the edge.

I looooove this but at $499, not so much. I am a big fan of buying quality but my Saarinen style (table #2) was a bargain and it is great quality. I am looking for that price/quality combo again.
We just bought several tools to begin constructing our own frames for my paintings and I am really excited about that but it leaves less for my decorating goals.

I debated this cube until I put myself it the mind of a three year old (I have one) and saw a playhouse and not a table with Daddy's drink on it.

So there it is, January goal.
I'll keep you posted.

Very cool tables. I'm a fan of the Martini table. You are one smart chicky to set your sites on one goal for January!

I think you and I are of the same mindset (and generation) as far as goals are concerned. I'm trying to keep my goal doable. As for your tables, I saw some cute ones at World Market a few months ago when sourcing for a client job. The prices were good too. Happy New Year, Kerry!

I'm even from an older generation!! Goals, forget it!
I like the ones from West Elm.
I know that everyone has them, and you are not everyone, but what about a garden stool? I've seen them for under $100 in every color you can imagine.

You are so smart. Already, I have some auto expenses I didn't plan for. I like the martini table. I'm sure you can find something at Homegoods.

very amusing...I try to sneak in all the chairs I can possibly sneak in..and of course you are right..each chair needs a table. Good goal!
