{No Ordinary Nighstand}

One of my favorite blogs is Nine & Sixteen
Tessa's home is amazing. 

When I saw her bedroom makeover a certain piece stood out to me & my brain hasn't stopped thinking about it since. 

I love everything in this room.
My favorite is the small chest turned nightstand. 

So after seeing this & finding my inspiration I did what all normal women do & headed to Pinterest.  I was blown away by the images I found.  I especially love all the gorgeous vignettes!

I love the idea of using a small chest as a nightstand or even an end table. 
It's something different from the ordinary. 

In our guestroom we have a bookshelf that we use as a nightstand on one side of the bed but I want a small dresser to replace it to give the room more storage.  The closets in our house are SMALL.  It's one thing I really dislike about our home.   

I'm excited about finding the perfect piece.  We will be traveling to Texas next month for 3 weeks & I know I can find an amazing piece there if I don't score one here first. 

How do you feel about using a non-traditional piece as a nightstand or end table?

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. I love the blue/green chest. Where is tha tpicture from?

  2. Me too! I love a chest for a bedside table. I have seen several photos and have a couple of photos saved. Definitely on the look out for one.

  3. Katie,

    I found on Pinterest. I didn't save it but I'll see if I can find it again for you.

  4. Peggy,

    I decided to find one for the end of one side of our couch too! I love the look! I hope you find the perfect one soon!

  5. I love all the inspiration from pinterest! Thanks for sharing. BTW....I wanted to invite you to stop by my blog. We are having an "impossibility" challenge for 2012!
