The Maiden's Nightstand

My nightstand redo. Being new to cataloging my refurbishing, I forgot to post a true before picture. This one will have to do. Suffice to say, it was a boring plain $10 nightstand my boyfriend found for me at the swapmeet.
It did have some merits, such as the circular woodwork and real wood throughout, but it was a plain oak color and stain. If you'd like to read through all of the steps I went through as well as some distressing ideas, please follow this link to my How-To Shabby Chic.

Here's some of the details.

After some toil and sweating in the summer heat, I have a piece I can be proud to put in my little room!
Next up is fixing the jewelry box to compliment. My list of ideas for my room are as follows:

1. Paint chair to match mint green desk.
2. Make a curtained canopy for my bed.
3. Find and paint some sort of little bookshelf.
4. Find some sort of chest or basket to put my towels and blankets into (they are in an ugly black crate right now >.<)
5. Antique-ify/distress my long mirror.
6. Find a rug that matches my color scheme (you do not want to see my current rainbow rug, trust me!)

Thank you for reading! ^O^



  1. What great detail! Your b-friend made a great find. I love your distressing. I can tell from your list there, it will be a beautiful room.
