Because there are so many models, styles, shapes and finishes available, you may want to start your hunt online for accent tables. Online retailers have a lot of selection and it's a great place to shop, especially if you can find a retailer who offers free shipping. That's a really convenient service for those of us who have very little free time on their hands to go from store to store, looking for the perfect table.
Don't have the budget to buy accent tables right now? You can make your own in a pinch. For example, you can stack a few leather suitcases on top of one another make an accent table. Another option is to put a glass tabletop over a large clay flowerpot. Or if you have an old wood or metal stool that needs some work on top just take a piece of cloth and cover the stool with it, turning it into an instant accent table.
Accent tables for any décor will also work well in a guest room. For example, you can use a lovely accent table in lieu of a traditional nightstand, creating a different look that is still very functional. While you may forego drawers bedside, you can gain a nice table top with plenty of room for a lamp, book, reading glasses and other nighttime essentials. You can even add a crocheted or vintage lace doily on the top to add an extra homey touch. If you have enough room you can add another table on the other side of the bed, or perhaps place accent tables for any décor next to an overstuffed chair in the room so your guest has a place to get a little privacy. Add a floor lamp behind it and you have a quaint, comfortable getaway.
You can also add a small table to your bathroom, placing guest towels on it instead of a towel rack. Add an antique washbasin and a pitcher filled with fresh flowers or potpourri to give the bathroom a fresh and fragrant look.
After deciding on style, theme and other particulars, finding the perfect accent table for that empty space will be easy. You can shop online for it and you won't have to fight crowds, bad weather, traffic snarls and cranky kids or sales associates. With so many to choose from online, it will be easy to find just the "right one" to finish that room with the perfect decorating touch.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
