How to Style Your Bedside Table
posted on March 25, 2013 | by Amanda Holstein
I feel like I’m always changing the look of my bedside table. Whether it’s a new candle, a fresh bouquet, or just rearranging the items, it’s such a simple place in your home to change things up. But no matter how much I give my bedside table a refresh, there are always a few essential pieces that stay the same. To start styling your bedside table, here is what you need to find first:
It’s important to purchase the larger items first: the bedside tables, lamps, and artwork. I found these simple bedside tables at IKEA and then spiced them up by swapping out the drawer handles for some cute ones from Anthropologie. The lamps were a lucky find at Bed Bath & Beyond (similar here) and the artwork I made myself. I bought the frames at Pier 1, took some thick white paper and used a large dry paint brush to swipe on some subtle neutral colors for a natural effect.
After finalizing these larger items, I sought out to find a tray where I could place the jewelry I like to take off before bed as well as some small personal pieces, including a sweet little bag of lavender my grandma gave me. I went to Goodwill for cheap knick-knacks like the tiny plate and rose box. Lastly, I think no bedside table is complete without a candle and some fresh flowers. I always light my candle before bed to try and relax my mind and end the day right.
What do you keep on your bedside table?
This is great! I’m looking to move at the end of the year and will definitely be tagging this post to have when I style my new place!

I don’t know why it took me so long to add a little bowl for rings and earings- I was always losing them. Now when I take them off at night I know exactly where they are.
Love these little pieces that make a big statement!

Lovely nightstand! I’m almost finished with mine. Really it’s done but I’m being very picky abou the knobs! I love your little blue knob!
I love the way you put this together! I currently share a nightstand with my boyfriend and it was a TERRIBLE idea! I can’t wait to move next month and have a fresh start with the little details like this.
