So, what do you really think? Too much grey? I know, I’m kind of addicted to the color. I don’t think you’d ever know I paid $22 for this bad boy now. I love that! People pay $300+ for nice nightstands and I’m sure it’s nice to just buy new furniture, but I’m pretty proud of my bargain. My house is full of hand-me-downs, fixer-uppers, and thrift store finds. It’s one of a kind, no one else has one just like it, that’s for sure.
Remember the nightstand I bought at Salvation Army? Well, I finally made sometime this week to work on it. With a little sanding and some fresh paint, this thrifty find is now one of my favorite pieces of furniture.
Because this little dresser had an icky laminate top, I used my How to Paint Laminate Furniture method, and it came out beautifully. I will share more of my how-to and the products I used tomorrow.
I moved it into my bedroom last night. I had fun this morning putting out some of my favorite nick nacks. The little bronze owl is from my youngest brother, Joash, he brought it back from India for me. I haven’t seen him in a long time and I miss him, so I keep it close to me. The butterfly and beetle are from Papua New Guinea, that’s where I grew up. And the basket is from Sri Lanka, my parents moved their after the tsunami and did relief work.
