DIY Night Stand Makeovers

By Stay at Home-ista on May 07, 2012
I'm sharing my favorite room at Style and Ease, so stop on by.


Since I'm redoing my son's room and turning it into a big-boy room with a real bed; he needed a nightstand. The wall where his bed fits has a slim 16 inches left over for a nightstand, not much space. Conveniently, our daughter, in her butterfly bedroom, had the perfect size table, 14 inches!

Some orange spray paint...


At this point my husband said that it looked like "construction orange".


Which is a good thing since the boy l-o-v-e-s construction machines. So I added a dump truck nightlight from Target, and he is ecstatic.


Our daughter, however, was left with no nightstand.

Enter the guest room nightstands, with a drawer, aka "secret hide-y spot".


Yes, the feet and knob are pink. It's like the dipped phenomena of furniture legs meets Alice in Wonderland. She loves it!
