I love piles of books–waiting to be read, half-read, already-read, or just looking pretty. Hubby jokes that the pile get so high on my bedside table that one day he’s worried he’ll find the pile collapsed on top of me. (I figure there are far worse ways to die!)
Because of my book-collecting affliction and the long rectangle shape of the master bedroom, he thought BIG bedside tables were in order. No more tall, toppling piles. These tables will be able to hold stacks and stacks of books!
Like the master bed, he constructed these tables using wenge, a deliciously dark wood.
However, to add some contrast, he choose a really unique wood for the drawer fronts and left a natural edge along the bottom.
The original design didn’t call for any drawer handle or pull. But after all was said and done, both of us felt like something was missing. In the end, Hubby found these perfect finishing pieces at Lee Valley.
