Copper Painted Antler – CustomAntlers on Etsy // I need more accessories to finish off our living room, and I’m digging this pretty find (it’s real but “naturally shed and completely guilt free”).2. Console Table – Ballard Designs // We just bought a white console from Ikea because it was cheap and the exact right dimensions to sit behind our sofa, but I’d have loved this industrial beauty if it fit our space.3.
