Summer is in full gear, and I feel like time is just getting away from me! We have been having a great time with friends and family, and in the mix I've been trying to check off a few things on my 'to-do' list at home.
One of those to-do items, was to refinish some night stands for our bedroom (actually, a re-do of the ENTIRE master bedroom is on my list.. one step at a time right?). I had picked up these night stands at a yard sale for $4 each. They are solid wood, and I knew they held lots of potential.
The master suite is the one room in the house I like to be a little more masculine. The wall are done is a taupe-y colour called mushroom cap.. very similar to the colour on the left below.
The dressers (when re-finished) are going to be a very dark brown, and all the trim is white. I decided to add a little POP of colour with the nightstands, in the form of relish green.
I love, love, love how they turned out! What do you think?? For less then $40 I have a brand new set of nightstands, now that's a good deal.
nightstands $8.00 ($4.00 each)
can of paint $ 24.99
TOTAL = $37.98
(and I have a TON of paint left over)
I still have a long way to go before the room is finished ...dressers, throw rug, head board.... I will try to remember to take more before and after pics as I go to share with you as I go. I really want this room to just envelope me when I walk in, so fingers crossed I can pull it off!
Are you in the midst of re-finish/re-doing anything? If so, please share them with me. I love to see the before and afters!
