About this time last year, I was searching high and low for a round side table that was at least two feet tall to use as a nightstand. It was much harder to find than one would have imagined! Most accent tables were only 18″-20″ high, and even without a boxspring on our bed that height is awkwardly low next to the mattress. I ended up eventually getting a friend to help me make one out of copper plumbing pipes.
So you can imagine my mixed emotions when I spotted not one, not two, but three adorable and appropriately sized tables at my local Target the other day. Option #1 was even adjustable, but I couldn’t find it online. It was marked down to $72 in-store. Still a little expensive, to my mind, but I like it.
Although I wouldn’t say I’m in love with the two nightstands we have now (one is the copper and wood construction pictured above and the other is this from Ikea), my yearning for a replacement isn’t nearly deep enough to spend $70-$80 on a new one. That’s probably more than I spent on the other two tables combined. But if you’re in the market for a new nightstand or accent table these are excellent choices! Like I said, I especially like the two-tiered option. It’s made of iron, rather than aluminum, and is more traditional than trendy.
