As I mentioned yesterday, I’m still working on the finishing touches on Gwen’s bedroom. (If you missed the reveal of her finished bathroom, you can click here to view the full before and after.)
Anyway, as I’m finishing up the details, I wanted to share a couple of them with you.
First, her nightstand underwent a little transformation. It matched the dresser and chest of drawers, but I didn’t want to paint them all the same, so I decided to do the bedside table black…with a twist.
Here’s the before:
Can you tell what the “twist” is? I used the exact same paint technique that I used on the dresser and chest of drawers–sand/liquid sander, prime, spray paint, sand, stain. I love how it looks on the black. The plain spray painted black nightstand just looked so blah, but this gave it some depth and interest.
Now if I can just find a bedside table for the other side, we’ll be in business!! I’ve looked all over–Goodwill, Salvation Army, Craigslist. I have yet to find one that will work. The room won’t be really finished until I find one!!
The second project I’ll share is a trio of decorative metal wall hangings. I found them at Hobby Lobby, and they were 50% off this week, so each one cost about $7.50. Here’s what they looked like.
Speaking of paint…be sure to check back next week (hopefully Monday) for the reveal of the dresser transformation for John & Alice’s bedroom.
Hope you have a great weekend!!
