I cherish my privacy. I don’t want anyone poking their noses into my business, or in this case, their eyes into my bedside table. I like to stash nighttime essentials as well as a few luxuries in my bedside table. However, our bedside tables weren’t discrete. They displayed our personal contents for the world. Not only didn’t I want people knowing what scent of lotion I prefer or what book I was currently reading, but the whole thing looked messy. This bothered me…a lot. Until, I thought up a solution.
Solution – poster board, burlap and masking tape. If I had used duct tape instead, that could be the title of an awesome country song. Anyhow, I had left over burlap from a failed Thanksgiving decoration idea and what house doesn’t have masking tape? I simply bought poster board, cut it to size, wrapped burlap around it and taped the burlap in place.
Now for the finished product…
