Our bedroom is starting to come together
and I am quite pleased with the results.
Today I am going to show you
how I repurposed some of the tables from my craft room into our nightstands.
We had a set of nightstands that I was not in love with.
We had picked these up at a thrift store when we first moved here
was using them as end tables for a long while.
They were only $18 and they did the job we needed them to do.
They soon got replaced
moved to our bedroom as nightstands.
I hated this wood look so I painted them grey with a white drawer
then did a fancy stencil on them.
Can I say that was a major fail - they were just so ugly.
I didn't even take a picture of them
I knew I would be redoing them.
But, my dilemma was - how was I going to redo them?
What I had envisioned for them did not fit with the direction I was going in our room
I had to come up with another plan.
Isn't it funny how sometimes necessity opens up the very path we need to take.
Well, having to change all the rooms around left some furniture
floating around here without a purpose.
One of them was this little table that I had bought for $10 at a thrift store.
It was already white and had a red painted drawer.
I gave it a new coat of my DIY chalk paint
painted the drawer in Valspar Seashore Fog.
Which is my favorite grey blue right now.
Then I added some little Fleur de Lis knobs from Hobby Lobby.
I don't remember how much they cost but,
they are almost always on 50% off.
So this little table became Papas nightstand.
Then I had this multi drawered table that I had bought many years ago.
It was originally a dark mahogany wood.
I changed it to white
I had decoupaged blue toille wall paper on each drawer.
That was my style then.
I removed all the wall paper and gave it a new coat of
DIY white chalk paint .
Then I painted the drawers in Valspar's Seashore Fog.
I kept the glass knobs I had originally placed on it.
I think it is such a great looking vintage piece now.
This became my night stand.
Here is a long shot of the tables on each side of the bed
how they complement the new bed linens.
This room is slowly coming together
we are really enjoying the calm, relaxing decor.
What have you repurposed in your home that was no
longer needed where it was?
We are constantly moving furniture from room to room
that's why most of our furniture
is painted to be interchangeable.
