I bought the above nightstand at a garage sale last summer for $1...
you heard me, ONE dollar! Yup, amazing deal.
Of course the forest green wasn't my favorite and it was a little beat up, but I was willing to give it a little tlc.
(It just took awhile to get around to it, good thing I had the move as motivation)
I had also bought the stool below at another garage sale (for $2) and decided to redo it at the same time.
I decided to paint both of them a nice robins egg blue.
After painting, I distressed the nightstand slightly with some sandpaper.
I was planning on replacing the hardware but when I took it off I realized it was covering a couple of holes, so I decided to stick with the same handle.
It actually has grown on me and I like it now, especially with the new color.
Both the nightstand and the stool have made their way into S's new room.
She really likes having a place to set her water and books at night as well as the help to get up on her bed.
On a sidenote: The quilt on her new bed was made by me.
But not recently, I actually made that in Highschool for home ec. class, neat huh?
Glad to be able to use it in my little girls room.
