Woah, That’s GREEN. May 26, 2011 DIY, Home Decor, Our House, Thrift Store Finds 13 Comments 4932 Remember a while back when I shared the guest room makeover (including a capiz chandelier, drop cloth bed skirt, wood shim mirror, and stained paper floors)? I conveniently left out a little something from the picture. Oh there it is! The super bright green nightstand I got on Craigslist for $10 was really killing the feel of the room, so I finally painted it. After about a week of thinking about colors (white? greige? teal?), I stumbled upon a can of paint in the basement that I’d once used on my living room walls (major throwback picture here). Not one to look a paint gift horse in the mouth, I thought I’d try it out on the nightstand. I also updated the hardware with some Krylon ORB. Oh yes, MUCH better. Less “holy crap I’m green!” and more “check out my lovely curves.” I think for being a completely free makeover, it turned out great. I like how it goes with everything else without being too matchy matchy. Oh and check out that lamp shade (I swapped out my book page lamp)-a $3 score from Habitat Re-Store. I think it brings all the colors together nicely in the room. Now if only I could find a smallish dresser for this space… ****************Linked Up******************* 13 Responses Ashley @ DesignBuildLove.co May 26, 2011 looks fantastic!
