Nightstand switcheroo

I'm sharing my favorite room at Style and Ease, so stop on by.



DIY orange nightstand


Since I'm redoing my son's room and turning it into a big-boy room with a real bed; he needed a nightstand. The wall where his bed fits has a slim 16 inches left over for a nightstand, not much space. Conveniently, our daughter, in her butterfly bedroom, had the perfect size table, 14 inches!


Some orange spray paint...




At this point my husband said that it looked like "construction orange".

Which is a good thing since the boy l-o-v-e-s construction machines. So I added a dump truck nightlight from Target, and he is ecstatic.





Our daughter, however, was left with no nightstand.



Enter the guest room nightstands, with a drawer, aka "secret hide-y spot".





Yes, the feet and knob are pink. It's like the dipped phenomena of furniture legs meets Alice in Wonderland. She loves it!

the orange is such a nice pop of color, I love it!

Krystle @ Color Transformed Family said...

I used a color very close to that orange last week to paint our planter outside. I assured my husband when I got through it wouldn't look like a construction cone. It ended up really bright and cheerful. I think it looks good in your son's room. Bright colors look so good in kid's rooms and the nightlight is pretty cute too.

meaningfulnest said...

Hi Jessica! I love the orange--too cool. And painting the feet of the knob of your daughter's nightstand pink was so clever! I love that idea...we have an old nightstand in my daughter's room that was in her grandma's house. It's old, dates, and is screaming for a change. I love the idea of only painting the legs or drawer a vivid color.

Heidi Rew said...

Love the orange & blue! Such fun colors! Great job!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Cute nightstands. Love the bright orange and her nightstand it too cute.

Eclectically Vintage said...

The orange is perfect! First, this small table, next you'll be painting armoires, entire rooms, houses ...

Wow, they both look so different than in the beginning! Amazing what a coat of paint will do. Both nightstands are so inspiring - I would LOVE to have that pop of orange in my son's room!

Very cute! I love the pink legs on your daughters nightstand.

I never heard of anyone spray painting furniture. Do you like that, instead of using a brush and or foam roller? I love the pink and white nightstand. Gorgeous. What kind of paint did you use? Did you sand, prime. than paint? Sorry. Im new at painting stuff. Would love some tips.
