*I’m so excited to be sharing my new bedroom nightstands with you today!*
I have a confession to make…for more years than I care to admit, I was living with a nightstand that, for lack of a better word, was jerry-rigged.
I had purchased a nightstand for my husband’s side of the bed and wanted to use a round table on my side but the only one I could find was a few inches too short. So, I did the only sensible thing you could do in that situation.
I stuck a bunch of old yearbooks under it until it was raised up to the proper level. And, let’s face it, those yearbooks have some pretty awful class photos in them so holding up a table was pretty much all they were good for at that point. Then I put a round table skirt over it and called it good.
But, it really wasn’t good. It was wonky…and rickety…and the table skirt was always getting bumped and messed up and I realized why it’s better to do the right thing the first time instead of trying to make something work that was never really meant to be.
Enter our new nightstands!
I found these on Wayfair.com and I don’t even have to put yearbooks under them because they are perfectly matched.
I love the gold detail around the drawers and there is just something about these nightstands that reminds me of when we were in England years ago and stayed at some of the most charming Bed and Breakfast hotels.
I know that it’s not particularly ‘in’ these days to love things that are so traditional. But, I don’t care. My heartstrings are always tugged by pieces with more classic lines. They are like the little black dress of home decor.
They outlast all of the trends and are always in style.
And, thankfully, there is rarely any jerry-rigging involved!
Thank you so much for meeting me and my new nightstands at the Fence today,
