It’s no secret: I’m a sucker for anything pink. Workout gear, purses, pillows — if it is the right shade of neon pink, I want it. (I’m still 19 years old at heart.) So, although the photos above made the blog rounds a few years ago, they’ve stuck with me. I mean, if Jenna Lyons has a faded watermelon desk, I want one. Needless to say, I’ve been eyeing Bludot’s line of perfectly pink furniture for a few years, but really only considered the coffee table…which I don’t need because I have a perfectly good one (shown below).
But…although I don’t need a coffee table, lately I’ve been feeling like my lack of end tables is glaring. To me, the huge empty spaces on either side of the couch (which was purchased for my last apartment – a studio) makes the room feel unfinished. The problem is that I want symmetry: two end tables and two lamps. It can really add up.
So, if I want end tables anytime soon, I will need to get creative. I have ideas on how to DIY the three end tables below (and hopefully where to find much cheaper versions of the lamps depicted); numbers 7-12 are what I already own.
What do you think? Should I give watermelon a try?
