A Day In The Life

The Bedside Table

Filed under: Fun Monday

I picked up this little pine table about 15 years ago at an antique shop.  I liked its clean lines and simplicity.  It isn’t very big so all I keep on top of it is a clock and a lamp.  The bottom shelf holds a couple of devotional books and a coaster for my water glass.  The white basket to the left holds my Bibles, religious reference books and biblical study guides.


In the drawer, we find more devotional books, a jar of cuticle cream, foot lotion, an assortment of pens, a yellow highlighter and a collection of bookmarks.


Here we have the full view of bed with bedside table and the lovely collection of clutter I have on my walls.   In case you’re wondering, the small pillow in front says, “Gardeners have the best dirt.”  The larger pillow behind it says, “Gardening grows the spirit.”  The white frame on the wall housed the window in the original front door of my parents’ house.  The basket at the end of the bed holds Apple Jack and Peel potpourri.  It smells heavenly.  And, yes, my bedroom walls are two different colors.   When I repainted several years ago, I couldn’t make up my mind so two walls are Glossy White and the other two walls are Sycamore Grove.

Very sweet room. Actually, I’m envious. Our bedroom is about the only room I haven’t really decorated. Maybe this spring I’ll send NLM away and do some painting. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, I hope that you have a wonderful Monday too, Songbird. Your room with the walls of two different colors and your nightstand are lovely. The window frame from your parents door looks great and has to bring you memories.The room seems to fit you.

Another fan of a “cornered” bed! Love the simple lines of your bedside table and the fact that you have things around that make you happy.

You have such a way with your things…everything looks as if it “has a place,” and is MEANT to be there. How come mine just looks like a bunch of cluttered crap?

I’m guessing your faith is very important to you?

So how do you fill the hole behind the bed with it across the corner?
