So… you’ve seen the shelves, the desk, and the headboard to the downstairs master bedroom. The last thing I really needed were nightstands. I initially was going to go with something like these, but it turned out they were way too low. So, those were out, and the quest continued…
I went to two local consignment shops and came across a few options. Finally I settled on these puppies (shown below) $29 each! They were the perfect height. I wasn’t totally sure about the handles, but in the end I kind of loves them a lot- and when you eventually see the rest of the space, their vintage brassy-ness fits right in!
I thought I’d just clean them up a bit and leave the wood finish. However, I was looking back at the inspiration shot for the headboard and really loved the idea of the black painted end table paired with the weathered wood. It inspired me to think about painting the nightstands a color instead! But what color? Well after a good long look at the endless paint swatches at Home Depot, I decided to go with “Starless Night (UL230-1)” from Behr.
And here we are- after a fresh coat, we have lovely blue night stands! The pictures do not do the blue justice. They are in fact a gorgeous deep dark warm glossy navy. Muy Sexy.
(By the way, for any of those curious, the neato typographic lamps were a HomeGoods find!)
