Bedside areas I find can get very cluttered very quickly.
I’ve recently decided to give mine a revamp and to try and keep it as clutter free as possible but still have things on there that I need.
I’ve had all sorts on my bedside table… Believe me, Play-Doh and broken jewellery anyone? Why would I need them in the middle of the night!
I’ve stopped and started this mini makeover many times… To be honest I keep forgetting about it until the evening when I’m going to bed again… But I’m too tired to fix it then!
As an incentive I bought myself a new clock. I had a CD/radio alarm thing sat there for a while which I never used. So I sold it on eBay and replaced it with a load of books… This streamlining wasn’t working!
Ages ago I’d spotted a little clock in the shop inside Imperial War Museum North… A lovely green number, I cant remember why I didn’t buy it at the time, but I didn’t. Its one of those I haven’t forgotten though.
In the end I bought a similar looking clock but for half the price of the museum one… There’s was £10 and the orange clock I bought was £5 from Asda, I’ve just checked its still in stock and it is- with 20% off clocks at the moment too. Even more of a bargain bedside find.
My bedside area consists of wall lights from Garden Trading, I really like how these look but I’m not sure we’ve put them high up enough on the wall- hence why we’ve not painted over the chiselled out bit yet.
The bedside cabinet table/cabinet is an Ikea one via eBay, the headboard is also eBay, our lovely mattress is from Eve (read my review here), the picture frame is a Monsoon one, the clock as you know is Asda George Living, the dish is a vintage find from Vintage Village in Stockport and there’s just the one book on there now as well as my iPad.
How long will it stay like this?? Ha- I dont know but at least I’ve made a start!
What’s your bedside area like?
