{Smitten} Gold Magazine Rack

While the big purchases can be nauseating exciting, it’s the small things that make my heart race. Little touches, like a new tea towel or basket planter, can make me smile when entering a room. And not having to save for months makes the purchase that much sweeter.

I haven’t been on the market for a magazine rack. In fact, it’s never occurred to me to get a magazine rack. But last weekend, Kelly and Amanda both posted InstaGram pics of their new Target magazine racks, and just like that, I needed a magazine rack!

This pretty faux-leather and brass goodie is on clearance at Target, and I was somehow lucky enough to find it. (I may or may not have dropped everything and gone the same day Kelly and Amanda posted theirs.) It’s currently out-of-stock online, but the site will show you nearby stores that still have them.

Now I’m wondering how I ever lived without this handsome magazine rack.

It’s almost like it was made for this corner of the Family Room. This spot has fast become my favorite in the house.

What items and small purchases are you smitten with these days? And speaking of magazines…did you see my sweet friend Courtney gracing the pages of House Beautiful!?! She’ll be in Big D next weekend, and I can’t wait to teach her the tricks of big Texas hair! Happy weekend, lovebugs!

    The room is amazing Cassie! And yes, the magazine stand is perfect for it. LOL about Courtney. Katie hasn't been in Texas a few months and has already been working on her "bump".

    If that is not exactly "curule" style, it is very close to it. And something I am desperate to have a touch of in my house. Either a table or a bench.

  14. Love the magazine rack, it's the nicest I've ever seen. My current purchase obsession is the Elfa system you used for your gift wrap organization. I purchased it and used it for a similar purpose. I linked back to you, hope you don't mind! You can see it here:

  21. I love your blog and this room in particular. Where did you find the Botero? She is one of my favorites, but I can't find her.

    • Thanks so much! We picked that print up at a little shop in Galveston, Texas called The Hendley Market.
