Topic tags/keywords: nightstand backsplash arts and crafts

I am building this bedroom set, and currently finishing the nightstands. I was planning on installing the plain backsplash, but my wife isn’t so sure. Can you help us decide?
The dressers are already complete.

Plain backsplash…

No backsplash…

-
-
-

or the Wedge and Strap backsplash to match the dressers…

Thanks!

I would go no back splash. Nightstands typically end up with clocks and lamps perched on top, and the backsplash will create a hurdle for the power cords. just my $0.02

+1 Tomoose..

unless you had some stylized cut out between the top and the bottom of the back splash for cords. maybe incorporate a scroll design or curve?

That’s funny, until I scrolled down, I thought I was going to be the only one who said no backsplash. Funny, I think it looks good on everything but the night stands.

Willie, I just have to remind you and the others that a happy wife is a happy life. Therefore, make the wedge & strap backsplash. Besides which, it is a set and they should all match. I always defer to LOML on matters of aesthetics, design, style, etc. It has worked for 40 years and counting. :)

Agree 100% with “AandCstyle”! Wife first and consistency second. Besides, the wedge and strap backsplash are really ultra cool!
