For Real Friday: Nightstand Nightmare

Happy Black Friday!  If you are out shopping, I hope you come home with some great deals!  I'm hoping to snatch a few Christmas gifts for the kiddos & myself!

So, for this addition of FRF, I am going to show you the current state of my bedroom:

{Before}

Let me preface this by saying that this room is in desperate need of attention!  When we moved in, we plopped all the stuff from our old bedroom in the room & called it a day.  Two years later, & it has only gotten worse!

So, now that I've gotten that out of the way, do you notice anything weird about this room?  This room has one bed & five nightstands!

{Before}

The two round tables flanking the bed are obviously from our old house.  When we re-do our room (hopefully we'll start on it during Christmas vacation) these will go to the basement.  (I guess I really could go ahead & take them down there since we have three other tables in the room!)

The Queen Ann desk will become my nightstand.  It will either be re-done in a silver leaf or just painted cream to match our other furniture.  I will probably accessorize it with a lamp & mirror, so it can also act as a vanity.  I found it for $40 on Craigslist, just before the discovery of my Craigslist Fail!

I bought the small chest in the corner from Overstock a couple of years ago, but it is identical to the Daniella chest from Pottery Barn.  This will become Mark's nightstand & will stay the way it is, with a new lamp & accessories.

{Before}

The small dresser on the right is from Ikea.  I bought it off Craigslist over the summer to use as Mark's nightstand.  Then I decided I would prefer to have a nightstand with pretty legs, so I moved the chest upstairs (it used to be in the entry way) & decided to get rid of the Ikea one.  Some day I'll get around to posting it on Craigslist!

When we brought the last nightstand home, my husband jokingly told the kids that we just needed about three more tables & then our room would be finished!  They just kind of looked at him like he was crazy!  Hopefully, you all don't feel that way about me!  

So, tell me, do you have a room filled with random furniture like this?
