Tips To Decorate Mid Century Nightstand
Midcentury nightstand is an enriching complement to all bedrooms. It’s functional furniture like resting your glasses when you sleep, or a place to put a lamp so you can read in bed. While the surface of a night stand is small, it is still possible to incorporate night stand in the decorative theme of your bedroom. Bring style to the surface of night stand with fabric, color and useful but decorative additions can change night stand from functional to lovely.
Clean from the top of your night stand. Clean all areas around night stand so you have a clean environment to work. Dust and clean night stand – it’s best to start decorating with a clean surface. Determine a lace or fabric runner over the newly cleaned surface of the night stand – this will provide a basis for the rest of the decorations, protect the surface of the stand and add style to your nightstand and your room. Choose fabrics that complement the walls, window treatments and bedding in the room. Attach the fabric to the night stand with Velcro if it happens to be particularly slippery.
Place a lamp on the bedside table over the fabric – you may want to put the lamp in the center of the table or aside, depending on the other decorations you will add to the table. Select a lamp that is high enough to illuminate you while reading your bed. Choose a lamp that matches the interior of your room – for example, if you have relatively simple furniture, pick up one of the colors in the room and accent it with a simple colored lamp. If you have more advanced decorations, use a lamp that has more ornate details, such as a metal casting on the stand or a beaded shade.
Take care of other things you need your night-for example, if you wear glasses, create a space for your glasses to go by investing in a decorative velvet box that can hold your glasses while you sleep. This is an effective way of weaving functionality in your night stand in a decorative way. Create a reading corner on the nightstand table – many stocks come with a space for a bookcase built into them. Build a decorative undercover bookcase on the surface of the night stand if you do not have a built-in shelf or if you just need more space. Place the lamp on the far side of your nightstand, away from you, and set books as you read just next to the bed. Stand the books and use the book to stop holding them, or use a small shallow wooden box.
