One Nightstand, 3 Ways
Our bedroom is slowing still coming along. With the addition of wall sconces from Lamps Plus, I was motivated to get our nightstands in order. We've had our black nightstands for years & while you could convince me to change them, I still like them enough to instead just give them a little update with brass knobs. I found these round, straight edge knobs in Target, of all places. I'm not sure why it surprised me, but they were just what I didn't know I was looking for, so I snatched them right up. I love when that happens.
While I love the knobs, the light sconces were an even better idea. I didn't realize how much of my night stand real estate was being taken up by the lamp! I tend to be a hoarder of books on my nightstand, so getting the light source off the top, was a bit game changer for me, not only that, but they have dimmer switches. Perhaps not a big deal for most, but seeing as how I'm a hoarder of books, it also means I tend to read later into the night than perhaps I should. You can bet its annoyed that husband of mine on more than one occasion. He might have been more excited about that dimmer than me, but its definitely come in handy!
I spent the day yesterday cleaning off my current mess of a nightstand & today, I've got one nightstand, 3 ways for you. Mine final one, ended up being a medley of the 3, but let me know which you like best. The first one, up top, is super clean & includes a basket -- good if you too, are a hoarder of books or other odds & ends. It will allow you to continue with that habit, but hide it from the world.
Have you visited Jenny's Print Shop? If not, you need to head over pronto! Lots of amazing artwork that you can download & print to any size you wish. I printed this floral masterpiece at Costco to a 20x30. It definitely packs a punch & love it. Going back to my plant lady roots, I added some garden greenery pulled from my grapefruit tree & some fresh flowers from a local market.
My sister, Baby Love Photos, is a talented photographer, as such, I have a TON of awesome images of my kids & family. I love using them throughout my house as art pieces. This is a favorite of my husband and only daughter...you can bet she's got him wrapped around her finger. Still have all my books, but I switched them so that the spines (which were all different colors) weren't facing out. Visually its more appealing when they match, and the book pages add a little texture. Add a candle + some fresh flowers & your set.
Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
