Pretty by the bed

I simply wish I had a lovely bedside table or little chest of drawers or a chair or anything pretty really next to my bed.

The truth is I have a plastic storage box on my side of the bed with magazines and a lamp on top. The storage box is housing...any guesses?
It's housing a number of my collected treasures which I'm either saving for 'my house one day' or I'm occasionally alternating them with things I have out in our living room.

On Mr Cornflake's side of the bed is his amplifier - anyone unfamiliar with what one of these look like, it's a great big black box! 'Look it doubles as a side table!' those were his words!!

I can't change our sorry state of affairs for lack of room in our flat so for now I'm dreaming of a time when I can get a look like above!



  1. Poor you......but you can make it as the first two pictures !! you can do it girl go for it..............hahahahhah!! dream on Ria...

    amp, but i bet the husband is pretty great!

    i have a TOWER of books beside my bed.
    it's a wonder i haven't knocked them over.

  5. Beautiful pics!
    I know how you feel, hubby used to sleep with his mountain bike next to his side of the bed when we rented a tiny place in kirribilli... ahhh! You will have your beautiful big place someday soon I'm sure and you will make it look beautiful!

  6. Love the candles in the second pic!! So me!!

    Love the size of the bedside table in the first pic!!
    Dear Cornflake, do not give up your dreams! Wish hard and some day the landscapes above may come true in your home!!!!!!!
    Tight hugs!! Bela.

  7. I love that last picture. So very pretty! I think we all have our "do do" boxes housing a multitude of things we are going to do "one day". Thanks for your well wishes for my new shop. xx

  8. Hi there! Thank you for stopping by at 'Komma hem'. I so appriciate having new readers!

  9. I like the mini dressing table idea - very nice! Jane @ the girl in the brick house.

  10. I know what you mean, we have crappy side tables with drawers that wont open. I can't wait for something as pretty as in these pics. Just love the mirror in the first one :)

  11. With inspiration pics like this Im sure all of yoyr dreams will come true....boys & their toys hey, at least its not engine parts!!!

  12. Beautiful! I would have never thought of hanging a mirror above the bedside table, but it looks lovely. To answer your question on my blog, I usually eat one or two servings I make and share the rest with friends, family and co-workers. Thankfully I'm still the same size I was when I started this blog!

  13. We have to have our storage, but it can also be pretty storage, I have discovered. Men, can't figure them out.


It's so wonderful to read all your comments, thanks for stopping by Cornflakes & Honey! x :-)
