Propped Nightstand Art Work

Hi there!  It's been awhile, I know.  We're getting back into the school routine, and while I do love summer, it's nice to have the structure that school provides.  I hope that you all are doing well and had a fantastic summer?

Today, I wanted to show you some art work that I recently added to the nightstands in my room.  One night, while I was brushing my teeth, getting ready for bed, I was looking at my nightstands and I remembering thinking that they needed some art work and wishing that I had some large scale graphic prints to go on them.
I really need to do something about that dark headboard.
Then I remembered that I already had some large scale graphic prints that were hanging in my bedroom on an obscure wall where I barely noticed them. So, I took them down and propped them up on the nightstands to see how I liked them.
I have since knocked the cute little clock off the nightstand and cracked the glass. :(

I know this needs a little something.  I'm thinking a green plant to liven it up and add some color.
I got the Picasso prints years ago, and if I remember right, they're from All Posters.  The frames are from Michael's.  They're same frames that I used for our living room gallery wall.  

I loved them propped on the night stands! Olivia asked me if I was going to hang them.  I considered it, but I love the informal look of them propped on the night stands, not to mention how easy it was just to set them down and lean them against the wall.  Plus, I think that if I hung them, I'd have to raise them up a bit and they would't be as visible.  

Here are a few more examples of propped art work on nightstands from around the web.

I have to say that I like both propped and hung art work.  Do you have a preference?

Thanks for taking the time to stop by today.


  1. So pretty! You are right on "trend" with how all of the "experts" say to style a night stand!

  2. Oh, I love it! They are a perfect fit and love them just leaning against the wall!

  3. Love it, looks very pretty. Thanks so much for your recent comment on my move. It is over now... well the physical part of moving but I don't feel any better yet. I'm just still overwhelmed and haven't been doing a whole lot except crying and feeling sick. :o(
