I have visions of organization.  Of peace.  Of a pretty space to sit and write.

Okay, back to reality.

Right now my bedside table is an antique dresser situated below a little window.   I love the dresser, it’s beautiful.  But I want a change, and I thought “why not use that little space?”  One of these days I’ll get a photo of the existing situation (the reality is just too harsh right now!).  Here are some photos of what I am dreaming of:

If I could get this exact desk, I would.  Love it.  I like the bench underneath and a bedside lamp.  I could use it as a vanity and/or desk.

This table it too itty-bitty for me to actually use, but it has the right concept.  Again, love the ottoman/bench underneath.  Just needs to be bigger.

See that table on the right side of the bed?  I love it!!!  Now I need to find one.

Now, the hard part is actually finding the right size table with the right finish at the right price.  And, of course, it has to be antique or vintage.

What do you think?  Do you think that I will actually use the space?  That I can keep it looking nice and organized?  Or will it end up being a dumping ground (like it is now) for sippy cups, receipts, multiple types of hand lotions, and buttons (you know, the extra ones on a new shirt)?  Talk me out of it if I’m crazy, or push me into it if I’m not!

Just a little side-note: I got all fancy-pants this weekend and added a few upgrades to the website.  You can now follow me on Bloglovin’ and Google+.  Just use those handy buttons to your right!  And, of course, I’m on Facebook and Pinterest!
