Today I’m wrapping up my craft room series with one final before & after. When I rearranged the guest room furniture, I realized I had a serious nightstand deficiency. My first move was stealing this cute black table from our upstairs tv room. That took care of one side of the bed, but there was a vast space on the other side BEGGING me to fill it before I took the room reveal pictures.
Of course, I didn’t realize how much I needed the space filled until I started taking pictures. I briefly panicked that I needed a new piece of furniture…at 6 PM…on a Sunday…with pretty much no budget left.
After striking out at the first couple stores, I found a little gem at Marshall’s for $29.99. It was an inch shorter than my ideal measurements, but I thought I could make it work.
My first plan to raise the height was to add casters, but I couldn’t find the right size at Lowes. However, the casters were located by the drawer pulls and I had a wacky idea. We have a stash of pulls purchased on clearance that didn’t work in our kitchen. I decided I could use four of them as feet on my new table!!!
I hot glued one to each foot. Once the glue was dry, the knobs actually made much sturdier feet than I expected. And I saved money by using something we already had around the house!
My plan was to paint the entire table black to balance the other nightstand. Once I started painting the legs, I was LOVING the two tone look of the black legs and wood top. I finished painting the legs while continuing to binge watch Hart of Dixie on Netflix 🙂
When the paint was dry, the real fun began and I got to move the table next to bed and get it photo ready!
Here’s a shot that shows both nightstands at once. I’m really happy with how it turned out considering I stole one from another room and found the other for $30 on a Sunday night 🙂
The color of the wood top looks perfect with my birdy lamp. I love mixing things that are a little rustic with items that are a little modern.
That wraps up the craft room/guest room series! I have loved your reactions even more than I love the room. Each day I get the nicest comments and I LOVE every one of them. When I started blogging, I underestimated how amazing it would feel to not only HAVE readers, but to have readers that consistently encourage me. And when you say I have inspired you? I melt. So thank you for giving me the confidence to tackle a full room. Because of you, I have an awesome space AND the feeling that I can conquer whatever space I set out to attack next!
Don’t miss any of the craft room series!
