Wood veneer tray table

I recently bought this White Formosa Tray Table from CB2 to serve as a bedside table in the nursery, and it was exactly what I was looking for except for the fact that I did not inspect the dimensions thoroughly enough and it’s a lot shorter than I had hoped. And eh, no big deal, I’ll work with it. I wanted something really simple, something to hold random things I’ll toss on top like burp clothes and diapers and tubes of diaper rash cream, and it’s perfect for such a task. The white lilacs are from a huge tree in our backyard. Carpet is being installed today, so tomorrow we’ll assemble the whole room. And then I’ll take pictures and let you judge me harshly!
