My judgement came into question tonight when I asked my mom to pick up a telephone table that I’d seen in the thrift store earlier.
Mom: “I don’t see a telephone table here, sweetie…”
Me: “Are you serious?! There were two there just yesterday! Are you sure you’re looking in the right place?”
Mom: “Yep. No telephone table. There are a couple end tables here though.”
She then proceeded to describe to me the two “telephone” tables I’d seen in the store the day before. So, what is a telephone table? Is this one?
How about this:
No matter what the other Etsy sellers are saying, I think telephone tables of any and every form are about to come back in a big way! I didn’t realize how practical they could be until last night when I was struggling to plug in my laptop and cell phone at my bedside. My bedside was a wreck with the little round end table I had before. Enter a telephone table, and I’ve got plenty of space for all my electronics!
Pretty hefty improvement for less that $5 at the thrift store, right?! And once cleaned up, it actually looks like it came with our bedroom set! I really like having two tiers on an end table like this. I’ll be keeping my eye out for more of these in the future!
*By the way, there’s a story to go with that ugly lamp. I can’t do anything to the base, but I DESPERATELY need to do something with that shade. Let me know if you’ve got a great DIY link for that sort of thing.
