If ever there was a reason to finally look at the manual of my DSLR this is it, iPhone photos just don’t cut it! However let’s move on to one of the to-do jobs for February. At the start of the month, I mentioned that I wanted to put the bedside table in our main bedroom to good use. I’ll spare you the ‘before’ shots (it looked exactly the same just with a pile of dust and junk on top).
I can’t take credit for the paint job as it was purchased complete with a rather nice coat of distressed Annie Sloan paint from a lovely shop in Hove (the name unfortunately escapes me).
As for the bits on top:
- The vintage motor car book was bought from Boulevard Bookshop in Hastings. If you’re ever in the area you’re in for a treat- by day the shop sells books, but in the evening it turns into a Thai Restaurant!
- The mason jar was purchased from eBay but even though it came from the UK it took forever to arrive
- The clock dish came from Green and Stone, an art shop on the King’s Road (very posh of me)
- The photo frame and roses were both gifts from some gorgeous friends
Their articles are worth a look to run through the basics of dressing up your bedside. According to The Everygirl you should include five items for a chic & functionable table; a clock, a lamp, reading material, a candle and another accessory. It would appear I’ve only managed two of them (although there’s no need for a lamp as we have sconces above the bed), but it’s still another one to cross off the list.
Hope you’re ticking jobs off your February list too. Have a great weekend x
