Tables for Nightstands.....Why Not?

I am in home redecorating mode. I have been making lists, searching websites and doing everything I can to journal my thoughts on some of the rooms that I would like to redecorate in our home. I even want to redo the laundry room. I need a better shelving system and more hanging space.

Anyhoo, I have recently been taking a second look at our master bedroom. I love it don't get me wrong but I want more table space for my nightstand area. I recently saw some pictures on Pinterest where some individuals used actually tables as their nightstands. Honestly, I think that is brilliant!

Okay.... here is my nightstand. It is very nice but it is really small. I purchased this from Homegoods around 2011. I do love it but I need more table space. I am considering moving the bedroom furniture around. If you look closely you can see that my nightstand is right next to the bathroom which means I have no wall space to get a bigger table. So I may have to move the bed which I am sure my husband will have a fit about. 

I would love to have something like this. It has drawers and the surface space is enough for me to have a cup of tea, my lamp, current book I am reading and a bouquet of flowers. With this nightstand having drawers I can place all of my personal items or books inside. Very nice and ideal. 

Just loving all of the table space. Ohh I need it!

Having more surface space would be wonderful ....

I thought this was quite creative. This almost looks like a bench. But I love how there is a large mirror for you to view yourself in the mornings before leaving. 

These next two tables are quite interesting....

No drawers but definitely like the option of having two surfaces. 

This one even offers three surface areas. Very nice!!

Honestly this might be the best option for me if we do not move around the furniture. 

Now this has nothing to do with nightstand tables but I do love the antique dresser with the antique white mirror. I think that the contrast between the two is just lovely. It's very subtle yet very elegant. This might be my next suggestion but we will see. 

I hope that my husband is open to my new ideas. I don't think that I am asking for too much. I think the nightstand idea can be accomplished now and the kitchen ideas can be down the road but we will see. 

Thanks for reading!!!

  1. Hi mrs shockley. I use two bedside tables. Both in a dark polished wood. One is a butlers tray, with two levels. The second is a captains tray. Both tops lift off and can be used as trays. June

    1. Hi June,
      Very creative bedside tables and I love the idea of using them in other ways. Very nice! Thank you for sharing June!
