When we got married we used most of our Target gift cards to get two pretty nice bedside tables. Gotta have a place to put your charging phone, a lamp, and a glass of water while you snooze, right? Lately I have been giving them the side-eye because their traditional look did not fit in with the mid-century boho look I have been leaning toward lately.
A couple quick impulse buys at Anthropologie fixed that quickly.
I don’t always gravitate to the mix-and-match look, but for these simple black tables I like it. The upper and lower are the same on each bedside table which makes sure they still look like a set.
I don’t know why it took me so long to do this, but the side tables look so much more eclectic and chic now! We swapped out the kitchen cabinet pulls at our Kansas house before selling it too, and it quickly brought the cabinets from 1930 to 2012 in, seriously, an hour’s work.
Even if you aren’t near an Anthro, there are great knobs at World Market, and even some nice traditional ones at Target or Home Depot if you just need a quick-something-new.

We got the ones we just loved on sale at Pier 1 a little more than a year ago. It really transformed the look of the console table that made it suddenly really fit with what we were trying to do with color in that area. A word to the wise though: if you get some knobs that you adore on clearance buy at least one extra, since you never know when your husband will crash into one trying to avoid stepping on the cat and destroy it. =(
Yes! A great tip.
