When I moved into my new place, I had grand plans to feature all kinds of DIY projects here on the blog. I would document each before and after, each decision, each purchase.
Does anyone notice something missing here? Yup. A lot. I have yet to really achieve these lofty goals.
I have no "before", but I can show you an "after". Here it is:
I found these bedside tables on the street. (I know a lot of you will cringe when you read this, what with the bedbug scare and whatnot. I know. But I'm a garbage picker, always have been and always will be.) These were pretty grimy and beat up when I rescued them, but I could see their potential right away.
I considered refinishing them and staining them, but my bedroom was looking a little dark and masculine with dark walls and a dark wood dresser already, so I went with paint. I also was torn between a seafoam green or just white, so I picked something in between. It's Mint Fizz from Behr. In this picture, it's a little hard to see. It's very, very subtle, but I like it.
See those handles? I don't know why they're crooked. The holes in the drawer seem straight and the other hardware didn't look crooked, but these are. No idea.
I also decided to pull out all the stops and line the drawers. I went a little overboard at Papermojo.com in December and used one of the beautiful papers I bought to line the drawer. Just a little double stick tape on the bottom and it's a world of difference.
Full disclosure on the bedroom as soon as the headboard is built!
