Awww, yeah. Momma finally got some new nightstands. As y'all know, I've been on the hunt for some new nightstands for our master bedroom. For the last three years, we've been using these little blue guys and, while I love them, they just aren't doing the trick functionally.
I've been searching high and low for awhile now and along the way, I've found some great thrifted pieces that I could make over. But nothing has really screamed out "I'm the one!" Yes, I clearly have high expectations of my nightstands... they must talk to me.
Finally, Pinterest got the best of me and I decided to join the rest of the world by attempting some Ikea Rast hacks. For $35 a pop for the dressers, plus paint and hardware, I can make over two solid wood nightstands for under $100... yeah, I'd say it's worth a shot.
The nightstands are up already and we are loving them so far. I mean, our previous nightstands held, like, a cup. Now I can put all kinds of mommy things (burp cloths, pacis, video monitor, etc.) up on the Rast and still have room for my gossip mags. Boo yah.
But here's the question now... what color should I paint these little beauties? Since we're in a rental house and would like to redo our master bedroom one we're in a permanent house, I think something neutral is the way to go. We could eventually repaint them something bright and colorful once we decided on a more permanent bedroom scheme.
There's the obvious blogger favorite- stain + white.
I've also thought about recreating our DIY master bathroom vanity from the old house with the Cement Gray paint and glass knobs.
I love this plain white version, but I'm not sure we're up for adding all of the trim like they did.
I'm also contemplating a possible stain + paint patterned finish.
Or maybe I should just stick with all white and dress it up with some fun knobs?
So many options! What's your vote? Any suggestions?!
