Our master bath is still very much under construction, but I took a few minutes this week to spruce up our bedroom. It’s amazing how much better we feel, living in a construction zone, with fresh linens and pretty nightstands.
I brought up a photo from our wedding for Stephen’s nightstand. It’s hard to believe we’ll be celebrating 9 years this November! We installed the sconces from IKEA awhile back after a quick coat of gold spray paint.
The nightstand is a new addition to the room. I came across it at an antique mall a few months ago for NINE DOLLARS! I couldn’t believe the price, but you’d better believe I hauled that bad boy up to the register and paid before anyone could question it.
The tassel throw at the end of the bed was a Mother’s Day gift to myself. It really inspired the color scheme of the bed with the aqua sheets and blue floral accent pillows.
One thing I love about both nightstands? They have drawers! It is so much easier to keep the top surface clean when there’s a drawer for all those nighttime odds and ends.
About six months ago, I finally admitted it was time to get glasses for nighttime reading and TV watching. I absolutely love these I found online at Warby Parker (not an ad).
I write in that little blue book every night. It’s a Line A Day journal and is an amazing way to record the day’s highlights, funny things the girls said, and milestones without feeling obligated to write for an hour every night. I highly recommend this little book to other moms who want to record memories but don’t think they have time to keep a journal!
So that’s a little tour of our spruced-up bed area. Having nightstands with storage has really made this area more functional, and it doesn’t hurt to have pretty new linens to snuggle.
Before you go, do you want to see a before photo? You know you do!
Here’s what this room looked like when we bought our house!
