in my room: bedside table

hey peeps. by the fact that i started off this post with those two words, it is obviously embarrassing that it has been a while too long since a post. also, remember when i started that series showcasing each part of my room? well, almost a year later, it is time to start wrapping it up. (peak over into other parts of my room by clicking here, here, here, and here.) therefore, today i will share with you guys a little project i have been working on for a while now, my bedside table. with a small & quite amateur gallery wall along with old, borrowed, and new pieces, this little area is complete and happy! 

(lights off.)
(lBAM. lights on.)
(i printed the little owl a few years back and recently painted the "adventure" canvas last weekend. the "dream big" art and cross were gifts, and you may recognize the photo of my feet and cat from the sidebar to your left.)

(this Eiffel tower ring holder from anthro is so pretty and filled to the brim with eclectic gems. not any real or fancy, though. also, please note the photo from one of my bro's graduation last spring. it is the only good photo of us 3, so i like to have it on display.) 

(my favorite candle in the history of candles. it is called french cade lavender by voluspa. you can find it at anthro along with many other wonderfully-smelling scents.)
(this was the painting i mentioned earlier. it is definitely not anything amazing, but a fun addition to my wall. i was in desperate need of filling this empty spot, so why not create your own art?) 
(complete with twinkly lights that were only supposed to stay up for Christmas. whoops.)

 the small table from who knows where fits in pretty well with the feel of my room. topped with a cheap-o lamp from target, the vintage table has a more modern aspect to it. however, as clean as the table is today, it is normally filled with 4 cups of tea, a pile of books & magazines, and... probably too many crumbs of stale cake. mmm. 

have a great week, all!

  2. Aw I love little posts like this, it's so interesting to see how people decorate their bedrooms. Yours is lovely, especially when the lights are off and the fairy lights are all twinkly. So cosy! xx

  3. that looks great!
    happy sunday!


  4. The adorable sneak peek into your room's interior has been intriguing and lovely at the same time. Your personality obviously shines the brightest when you parade it as artistic decorations, Cate. At any rate, your bedside table is decorated in a very lovely way, and the lamp accentuates it in an artistic way. Thanks for sharing that! All the best to you! :)
