From bleak...

...to chic! Well, at least I think so.  I think I mentioned that I have been working on pieces for my second guestroom.  I am not quite ready to reveal the two dressers, but I can give you a little peek at the piece I am using for a nightstand.

Let's recap on the colors of the bedroom set itself...remember, my two-tone headboard?  If not, it looks like this:


The bedding is very similar, which alone, makes for a very boring color palette.  I was originally going to use peach as my accent color, but after seeing this on Pinterest, I had to make a change of plans!

Stunning, right?  Let me just tell you that I did a search for those sheets and at $250 a set...it ain't happening!  I LOVE my guests, but there is no way they are sleeping on nicer sheets than me!

Okay, where was I?  Oh yeah...the nightstand.

You might also remember (yes, I am testing your memory today)  that I purchased two of these at an estate sale.


This particular one, I painted for Taylor and Tatum's room...it looked like this:


Now, picture one more drawer (forgot to take a "before" pic)...paint it a pretty coral color and you get this:


I wish I could give you the exact color, but I had Lowe's color match from a piece of fabric that I have...let's just say, I LOVE it!  As far as furniture goes, this is really just a "cheapo" piece that was originally purchased from HomeGoods (loves me some HomeGoods!!) but I love all detailing.


To kick it up a notch...I slightly lightened the original color with a touch of white and used a damask stencil that I picked up at Joanns, to add some additional design to the sides.  I think it really compliments the details on the detailing on the drawers.  Whatcha think?

Worth another look?


Thanks for stopping by!

I had to stop by from Cassie's party because I linked up a coral piece too. It's my absolute favorite color right now. I love your nightstand with all of the detailing and I too am dreaming of a coral bedroom!
