I had my linen sent out for a tufted headboard for my bedroom. I need to start thinking about nightstands instead of pretty coverlets. Right now, our bed is on the floor with nothing but a digital alarm clock by our side, classy. I can’t wait for the room to get renovated. I’m tired of living like a college kid. It’s just plain embarrassing.
I’ve been cruising craigslist for weeks looking for affordable nightstands. The legs are never quite right—always too bulky and 80’s. I really like shaker style furniture and think it fits the overall feel of my house. The above side tables are available as a kits (or finished) from Shaker Workshops. The Shaker Candle Stand on the left goes for $130 and the Enfield Shaker Side table for $270. Totally affordable. The kit includes sand paper, stain, and other tools to help you put the piece together. Maybe I could get the Candle Stand to try it out?
