Hi, I'm Lori Gilder with Interior Makeovers and LoriGilder.com, and I'm here today to talk about bedside tables that work with your shabby chic bedroom. And one of the best ways to go about doing this is really look at your bed right now and find some pieces that really complement that. Whatever your headboard is, what your room style is, we know it's a shabby chic style and decor, but your bedside table should really complement the headboard that you're using. Run out to the flea markets, thrift stores, antique shops and see what you can find. And they can be varying shapes and varying sizes. You can have an oval or a round on one side and opposite you could flank the bed with a rectangular piece that's aged and weathered with tile inserted to it. But the one important trick and it's really an important tip, actually, is to make sure the heights of those tables are within an inch of each other. That's it. So when you have your bedside lamps flanking your bed, they're even and everything is very symmetrical. So take some time to find some really great finds. They can be a lacquer table with some beautiful cabriolet legs. It could be an antique weathered surface that's rectangular with the weathered look. Or some metals and glasses, but to bring those shabby chic looks into your home, make it your personal style. My one tip and I'm going to repeat it, is keep those heights the same. You have a lot more flexibility in the finishes and designs but keep the heights the same. So today, we were talking about what kinds of tables to really incorporate into your shabby chic bedroom. I'm Lori Gilder. I would love to see you all on my blog, DiaryofaRenovation.com. Or some visit me on my site, LoriGilder.com, and I hope to see you there.
