Take a stand

From habitat plus - bedrooms

A bedside table is essential for placing reading lamps, alarm clocks and books. But while its function is practical it doesn't mean its colour scheme has to be boring.

Use this simple furniture piece to introduce an accent colour that contrasts with the walls or ties into bedlinen. This small piece can easily be repainted with Resene testpots when you want to update your interior.

A distressed bedside table

A technique to distress a bedside table to give it a vintage look is to dab Vaseline along parts of the edges before painting. Once dry, use the cloth to lift off the paint over the Vaseline to reveal pieces of the wood underneath. Bedside table in Resene Twizel, wall colour in Resene Coast and Resene Seachange and the flooring is Resene Colorwood Limed Oak.

A luxurious bedside table

Create luxurious looking bedside drawers by painting a line design in Resene FX Metallic Gold. Wall in Resene Grenadier, Resene Rice Cake and Resene Aquaclear.

Use a bedside table to tie in a bedroom colour scheme

A bedside table is a way to tie in colours from a wallpaper into your interior scheme. The top half of the wall features floral design Resene Wallpaper Collection E384534 with tongue-and-groove panelling on the lower half of the wall in Resene Bunting. Bedside table in Resene Pewter (outside) with Resene Coconut Cream (inside), chest of drawers in Resene Pewter and flooring in Resene Coconut Cream.
