In my post last Friday I gave you a sneak peak of what I had in the works for my nightstand refresher. I promised the finished product today, and even though it's not completely done (how most of my projects tend to be) here it is.
I don't think I've mentioned before that we're staying with my in-laws right now. Since I know it's temporary, I really haven't done much with decorating. Then one day, I just decided temporary or not, I can still make my space inviting and fun for me.
I have a bit of a pencil can obsession (see here and here). I love making cute cans to house my cute writing tools. I do a lot of writing at night before I go to bed, so I needed a good supply close by.
I also like to read at night, so I keep a bookmark handy (click here to see how to make one for yourself). And I try to write little notes to others once in awhile, so I have a few cards as well.
This memory board isn't technically part of my nightstand, but it does hang on the wall to the side of it. It's completely undressed. I have plans for quotes, banners, and pictures to go on it, but I haven't quite gotten around to that yet. So far, I just a few things on it. They may or may not stay on it by the time I'm finished with it.
I think my favorite part of the entire nightstand is my $7 clock from Walmart. Isn't it cute? I'm in love with the look of it! It does tick, and this probably sounds silly, but I have to put it under the bed when I sleep because the ticking drives me (and my husband) crazy. But during the day I don't even notice the sound, and it looks fabulous!
I did get a few questions about my peacock. This is a very close second favorite(maybe even a tie) to my clock. I got it at TJ Maxx. It's a canvas piece of art. TJ Maxx always has great art for cheap! It was my inspiration for the whole nightstand. I'm usually at a loss unless I have a single item to set up the whole color scheme and feel of the space I'm working on. This peacock was exactly what I needed to begin working.
I'll keep you updated on any other finishing touches I make to my nightstand. I can tell you it sure makes me happy to climb into bed at night (after putting my tick-tock clock to bed under my bed) next to such a darling little nightstand. I love making small spaces happy places!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you found a little something worth your time. Have a wonderful weekend!
