Ladder Tables

Don’t feel safe using your old wooden ladder? Repurpose it into a decoration! Lean it against the wall encompassing your nightstand. Or fold it out and place wood or glass shelves across the rungs. Hang pictures and artwork from the sides for an incredibly charming décor. Paint it to add an accent color to your room.

Glam Table Décor

The sight and scent of fresh flowers are perfect for helping you awaken to a new day. Plant them in pots in front of a window to keep them growing all year long. Add a romantic ambiance by coupling your floral arrangement with votive candles.

Lamp Décor

A bedside table lamp offers the right amount of ambient lighting for reading or cuddling in bed and can be very stylized to become a highlight of your room’s décor. Let it be a colorful accent or a decorative piece that exemplifies your room’s theme.

Artwork Décor

When you want to make a unique style statement without being too loud about it, simply place a painting or a vintage photo in an old picture frame leaning against the wall on your bedside table. Leaning artwork is an informal decorating style that showcases your tastes. Display abstract art for color and shapes, a painting of a favorite location, or a representation of something meaningful to you. If you have your own artwork or photo, even better! Add to the effect with antique editions of your favorite books or magazines fanned out showcasing your interests.

Stylish Clock Décor

We all need to wake up some time, so why not turn your alarm clocks into part of the décor? Try a vintage wind-up clock or a chic modern computerized timepiece. Alarm clocks are available in a wide variety of colors and melodies to add fun to your wake-up time rather than annoyance.

Bedside Table Ideas with Figurines and Statues

Do you enjoy decorating your dining tables, console tables, or curio cabinets with little figurines and statues? Bring a couple of pieces into the bedroom to add cheer to your bedtime and waking moments. From sexy mermaids to Precious Moments sleeping cherubs, a small statuette can enhance the mood of your entire room. If you are a faith-filled person, display a statue of Mary or Christ and say a short prayer before bed. If you want to remind yourself to de-stress, try a mold of Buddha.

Jewelry Table Décor

Jewelry is as much of an adornment on the table as it is on you. Keeping a porcelain dish with pearls or a pearl necklace draped around a lamp on your bedside table add class and femininity to your room. Couple one or two pieces with flowers, votive candles, or colored glass stones in a tall vase.

Candle Décor

Candles deserve mention. By themselves or paired with any other accessory, candles make a simple or ornate display. Go vintage with a single tall candle in an antique holder, rustic with a squat candle in a metal holder, or romantic with votive candles or tea lights. In any style, candles will provide a warm, welcoming feeling to your bedroom.
