Lamontagne. Nightstand. September 26th , 2017.
Some people claim that a nightstand is a nightstand, thus they completely run out of ideas if they are decorating their bedroom in say the foreign shores of the West Indies as an example. The bed was easy, they say with a trellised four-poster onto which they could attach a voile of some sort, and use batiked material for the sheets and pillowcases, that covered the look perfectly. Another used a voile hanging from the ceiling to give the illusion of a four poster! But the ethnic nightstand seems perpetually out of reach. What comes to my mind immediately is a natural rattan that is totally unpainted. Rattan is made in the West Indies, thus it fits well in a West Indies bedroom without sacrificing the utilitarian necessity of a nightstand.
Finally, the spray paint option that is becoming popular in childrens bedrooms is the chalkboard maker. This is especially popular for furniture that is on its way to the charity shop. It definitely creates something fun that gets the kids excited about having their room decorated. Plus, kids love the idea of doing a rare activity like writing on furniture. In the end, the most successful projects for bedroom nightstands are ones done carefully. No matter what you use to change the surfaces, it is important that you do a paint test on the underside of the nightstands before you attempt to cover them completely. Other important tips include covering the hardware or metal pieces of the nightstands with painters tape to ensure that you do not cover them with paint.
A really "funky" nightstand can be made out of two brass serving platters with hidden brackets underneath the platters to hold it all up. This along with the dark wooden legs that are tied in makes a superb Middle Eastern look, blended with perhaps other eclectic furniture if you so desire. Imagine if you will, a bed that has a wide amount of wood on each side of the bed, encasing the mattress as it were. This kind of unique style bed will probably hold drawers in its base for ample storage, and the edges of the bed act as nightstands for small items necessary to the sleeper. This type of bed also does away with the need for a nightstand.
Bedroom nightstand with two drawers can be used for multiple purposes. In the storage drawers you can keep nightwear clothing, necessary medicines and other accessories. You can put decorative items like a table clock, a fancy night lamp, an attractive photo frame or a beautiful flower vase on top of nightstand that significantly increases the splendor of your bedroom. The night stands with drawers can be used to store cosmetics, important keys and accessories like cell phone, wallet and wrist watch that is safe and easily accessible while getting ready for your office. Along with convenience of storing things, 2 drawer night stands also ensures clean and tidy space in your bedroom. For the ones who like to read books before going to bed, you can store a few selected books in the drawer of nightstand without taking trouble to walk to the study room or library every night.
There are still people however who wish to have matching nightstands for their bedroom with one on either side of the bed, as sentries to guard good sleep. An all-Edwardian bedroom set looks "right" with two bulky matching Edwardian nightstands. It was the fashion back then, and today is easily accepted if you like Edwardian furniture styles. Readers will want a nightstand that has room for a good reading lamp, as well as perhaps a shelf for the "to be read" books that readers seem to want to accumulate. This is just one of the reasons why I consider the need for a nightstand to be a highly personal one.
