Our guest bedroom is a major work in progress, but I'm giving you a "sneak peak" to share with you a GREAT nightstand. It's the trifecta, it has looks + quality + value. What I'm talking about is the Chase nightstand from Cost Plus World Market:
The reasons I love it: you can see the wood grain (it's not vaneer/partical board). The stain is a beautiful mahogany color (it's showing more red in my photographs but in real life it's not red. Neither is my carpet.) It has beautiful sleek, modern lines but isn't too modern to put next to linen (like I did here). It's a great size.. one of my pet peeves is puny nighstands. And the best part....
It's only $99!
$99 at IKEA will buy you this:
While not bad looking, it's fiberboard and lacks in looks and quality.
And here is my "work in progress" room shot:
The Euros are from Isabella (the shop I work at 2x a week). They are linen and I love them! (email me if you want purchase information!). The swatch on the wall will be the new paint color, it's called "Vintage Linen" by BEHR (which is very fitting, since the Euros and bedskirt, not pictured, are linen). The lamp and green sheets are temporary. The glass candle holders are also from World Market.
And if you are curious, plans for this room include...
+ vintage white painted dresser
+ new white sheets
+ Windsor Smith fabric bolster
+ new lamps
+ window treatments (no idea yet)
+ throw or duvet at end of bed
+ awesome headboard, maybe something like the Colette bed by Crate and Barrel:
Or like this headboard from Serena & Lily:
This room is very special to me because both our family lives far away. I want them to have a beautiful retreat when they come to visit us (and someday future grandbabies!!)
