I have known for a while that I wanted and needed a new table beside my bed. The one I was using, although it looked pretty with its vintage coverings, just wasn't very functional and it took up too much space. I needed a smaller table with a drawer and I knew just what I wanted it to look like.
Well, Friday night I went to an auction and there it was. (Ignore the yardstick on the floor. I'm not really very good about staging my photos.)
It was dirty, the top was cracked , and the paint was really worn and chipped. It was just about perfect.
So I outbid that other very nervy bidder (how dare she bid against me) and carted it home. After cleaning it up I set it beside my bed and I think it might have smiled at me. I mean I did rescue it from an almost certain death.
Now all that was left was to add a knob. I decided on a faux glass one.
Then I made it my own.
An old Watt Moon and Stars bowl on the bottom shelf will catch small odds and ends.
On the top I added an antique ironstone pitcher, a vintage crochet runner,
and my mid century lamp.
Now it really is perfect.
A simple find for a simple life.
