My sil was given this one for my teenage nephew's bedroom when their home caught fire. They were going to strip and stain this a dark stain to match his bedroom so . . . I suggested we just do a switch. : )
Since I no longer need a full desk, I was going to paint and sell it. But then one day after thrifty hopping and failing again to find a tall nightstand to fit my high bed, it hit me . . ., cut the desk in half! So I measured, marked, and taped and then had a friend come and cut it for me.
Ta da!!! Perfect size and height with three deep drawers.
I then added the royal on the top to match my bed and also on the drawer knobs.
Once the paint had become a little tacky, I took a dry brush and drug it through the top to bring some of the aqua through.
A little light distressing and . . . Voila!!! I really love the color combination!
This is a hint of where I'm going with my bedroom theme.
The lamps will be different and so will the bedding. The fabric tucked over the pillows is the basis for my bedroom color scheme and will be my window treatment and accents. I must admit that I'm not very happy with my bed frame now; seems like to much of the same color. We've got sunny days all week so think I'll be repainting or at least re-working the coloring of the bed frame. I still have some more furniture to be painted for the bedroom, a corner amoire and a mirror!
