A Clutter-Free Night Table.

Ok, this is gonna be a quickie. I am all cozy in my bed, and I am FINALLY going to watch an hour of my DVR shows. Ok,'s American Idol night. Ok? Yes, it's my guilty pleasure. So, let's get right to it!

A few weeks back, I was grumbling to myself about not being able to ever find the TV remote, who's home is supposed to be on my night table. I also was lamenting the fact that every time I reached over for anything I was constantly knocking the tissue box off it's perch. 

I got to thinking that maybe I should put that 3M command strip stuff, similar to velcro on the side of my night table, and the bottom of the remote. Same with the tissue box, but I wanted to find an unobtrusive re-fillable one. Out of sight, and out of the way!

I had a plan! Wouldn't you know, just a few days later, I found the cutest vintage clear plastic re-fillable tissue container at the G.W. (That's my code for the Goodwill, folks!)  It was 99 cents!! Yep. That's right.

I cleaned that baby up with hot soapy water, and applied the hook and loop strips to it, and the remote.

 Hey, nice Uggs, and red jammie pants!
 A little blurry...sorry.

 Once hung, they were barely visible from the side, and I love it!!!

 My night table is quite old, and was purchased at a little Santa Barbara antique store for $50 bucks! The finish was this way when I got it, And I love it. I added some free hand gold scroll work on the front of the top drawer, and little stars on the knobs.

I also found a little beat up pewter tray several months ago while thrifting. It was $1.99, I think. I lived with it pewter for a while, but decided to hit it with some bronze metallic spray paint, and some cork contact paper so I can put my drink on it. It works great!

 See, now there's plenty of room on my night table, and you can't even see the remote and tissue box on the side!

I am currently tweaking my master. It is furnished with collected pieces. I do have a nice large high boy double chest from Restoration Hardware on the wall that's not shown here. The same wall that houses the TV. 

That's it for now. Off to watch my show. Don't judge, I know it's crazy! I love it anyway! :-)
