Custom Nightstands

DSCF5514

I’ve been meaning to add these for quite some time, but I’ve been quite busy with school and writing.

We had these ugly forest green nightstands with fake wood drawer fronts and tops and that we just wanted gone. However, they were still in great working condition. Since my kids still needed nightstands, and I really couldn’t talk myself into spending the money on new ones, I decided to update the ones we had. Using Mod Podge, fabric, scrapbook paper, and some spray paint this is what we ended up with. They look great in the kids’ rooms and along with the other furniture that I painted to match, they have an entirely custom look to their rooms. Each night stand cos about $10 to update. Sure beats spending $100 on night stands!

  2. I love it when a lil elbow grease saves 90% off of the cost of a home improvement (or any improvement for that matter!). Sweet blog, and your ideas can be put right to use. Thanks for sharing:)
