[ nightstand reveal ]

SAY HELLO to my sexy little nightstands! I almost fainted when we found them since I had almost given up and they fulfill everything I was looking for:

not too tall or too low for the bed and lamp
wide enough to hold a few things and in proper proportion to the bed
a light painted finish to contrast with our darker linen headboard
storage
pretty hardware
a lovely shape


I rummaged around for a few pretty bits and bobs to style with for now (since I don't have much here yet)

a mercury glass ball and a couple of books...

a vintage scotch glass with a few blooms...

some ruffled pillow cases and starfish pillow...

I'm really happy with our choice and I can say good-bye to our cardboard boxes!

You are right....PERFECT. The French style, color and hardware is really similar to those that I have in our little guest room..so you know I love it. I had to have mine repainted.

Loving your box replacement - I have the Decorate book too :) I'm amazed by how fast you pulled it all together - it would have taken me years... XOL

Love your new bed side stands they are pretty, I see you have the decorate book and alphabet weekends too :) Good choices :) I love all the light in your photographs, it was meant to be nice and sunny here today but alas as always the rain creeped in!
