Fab Tables from PBTeen

I was just browsing Pottery Barn Teen and came across these fabulous table options. All of these are ideal for dorm rooms or small apartments. The first and last are my favorites. What are yours?

This C-Thru Table works in any decor scheme. It's a great cubicle storage space for odds and ends you want to have handy: magazines, school supplies, etc. The wheels make it easy to move around. And its clear structure gives the illusion of it not taking up any space.

These Circolo Nesting Tables are stylish and eye-catching. You can pull out the smaller one for extra surface space, or put it away for more floor place. These would make excellent bedside or end tables.

Pedestal tables are always lovely---and these Bubble-Up Bedside Tables offer the classic pedestal structure with a fun twist. They are pleasing to the eye and don't take up much space.

The tiered Pop-Up Storage Bedside Tables are a little more elegant and grown-up. The top is just big enough for a lamp or alarm clock. On the middle shelf you can keep things like books, glasses, remotes or notebooks within reach. And the bottom is perfectly sized for a basket or storage tote to store away clutter.

The Work & Relax Table is fantastic because it serves double duty as seating and storage. It can serve as a coffee table and has plenty of storage space for magazines, text books, or even shoes. The cushion can be removed so that you can bust out the soda and popcorn on movie nights. Or leave it in place for a comfy place to put up your feet or as extra seating.




DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
