{nightstand makeover}

The bedroom in our new loft is much bigger than our previous place and we finally had room for nightstands! We quickly learned that finding a pair that did not cost over $100 a piece was not easy and I resolved to find some that I could makeover with a coat of paint.  We lucked out when we bought these at the Melrose Trading Post flea market for only $20 each (the seller is there every weekend and he had many others just like these). After giving them a quick sand and healthy coat of Kilz primer, I painted them with a rich navy paint by Pratt & Lambert called "Between the Stars." The lion's head drawer pulls were purchased from an antique seller on Ebay- these are fairly common pulls and you can almost always find some on Ebay or Etsy for around $10 (like these).


  1. Hi, do you have any contact info on the seller? I'm at Melrose Trading Post often and have been looking for something similar to these for awhile with no luck! Thanks :)
