I was over at Mom's around Thanksgiving and saw that the table was set aside with some other things to be donated. I asked if I could have it, and she happily agreed.
I've been looking for something...a bench, a table, a chair to set at the end of our bed. I have this beautiful white embroidered coverlet that I use on our bed with matching white pillows. When we un-make the bed each night to sleep, I have no other place but the floor to store these pillows till the next morning, which is fine, the carpet in our room is clean enough. The problem comes with the dog. Oliver loves to sleep in our room at night and he's taken quite an interest in the soft over-sized pillows.
They are way too nice, and too WHITE to be used as a dog bed!!! So each night it's this ten minute ordeal of moving all the things off our dresser tops like frames, decorative boxes and miscellaneous items to make room so I can store the pillows off the floor. Then in the morning when I make the bed, I have to re-arrange all the nick-knacks back to their original place...it's annoying.
This is why I wanted the piece of furniture at the end of the bed. Somewhere where I would have a designated place for the pillows each night.
I have to say though, there is someone who's not a fan of the new table....Oliver. Each night he puts his head up on the table and smells at the pillows like "Hey, how about putting these on the floor for me?" ...Time to get a dog bed for our room I think.
