Holidays are good for the soul. And the blog. Eight posts already since I've been off? Now that's just crazytown! Please try not to get sick of me. Once I go back to work I'm sure I'll simmer down a bit. ;)
Yesterday I posted about some plans for the master bedroom. Truthfully, I've been on the hunt for some of the items on my wishlist for a long time.
One of the items on my wishlist was a pair of bedside tables for the master bedroom. A girl needs a spot to put her coffee down in the mornings while surfing the internet in bed, dontchaknow?
Forever and a day, I've been looking for tiny, chippy tables like this one:
They need to be really tiny, because we don't have alot of room on either side of the bed if we centre it in between the two windows in the room.
Back in the spring when I traveled to the Christie Lake Antique Show (you can read that post here) I even mentioned that I found some tiny tables.
'Cept they were $400-$500 EACH. Say what!?!?!?!??!?!?! Obviously, that didn't happen. They did not come home with me and I've been bedside-table-less ever since.
Until Homesense came to my rescue. I walked in one day and saw a set of tiny, white, matching, cottage-y end tables for about $79 each. AND, they were wood to boot. I snatched those suckers up real fast.
Here they are:
Even though I wanted some tables with a little more chippy character, these puppies will do just fine. I can always add some chippy things to the shelves, right?
To give the tables a bit more character, I picked up two of these adorable knobs when we were at The Door Store in Toronto. (P.S. Found this awesome store thanks to Jen's recommendation from Rambling Renovators. The store was awesome.)
So here is one of the knobs before:
And here is one of the knobs after:
What I especially love about the tables is their potential to put cute stuff on the top AND the two bottom shelves on each one. Oh yes, bring on the clutter that I hate to dust. Hee hee.
Woo woo!!! Cross bedside tables off of the wishlist. Done and done. :)
P.S. I'll probably bombard you with another post tomorrow since I think I found a quilt that I actually like!
