Finished Nightstands {Reveal}

Y'all, I am so excited to share this project. I have wanted nicer nightstands in my bedroom for several years now, but didn't want to pay hundreds of dollars. I'm cheap, I admit it.


I finally finished these (seriously, I'm the biggest slacker ever... I started these in October. The shame.) and got them into the master bedroom. Love them. Weep.
(That was me weeping with joy. What? I'm totally normal. Pfft.)

Would you believe that this....



used to look like this?

Yep, it's an IKEA hack! I had seen a few great hacks of this $35 RAST dresser and I couldn't pass up the chance to have great looking nightstands myself. Love!





Our cat Fig seems a bit suspicious, but she's neurotic.  I love them! I'll post some construction details tomorrow, but I just couldn't wait to share. What do you think?

  14. Your bedroom is so beautiful. Mine really needs help but I have no idea what to do with it. AND after 11 years, I've realized that we're really not laundry-folding-people and why decorate a room that's full of baskets of clean laundry.

    It's a problem.

    Your pretty room makes me feel inspired AND saddened. :)
