Ive been hunting for bedside tables for my own room for eons and forever..Its honestly been a full rotating door in here with me hauling up every new piece to see if it would work to no avail..I only ever found single tables...never a pair and having a "flea-market chic" kinda style, I was ok with that...but finding 2 different tables with the same height was becoming an epic fail..so the Mister used the empty dresser and I kept my sidetables a-comin hoping to find one that worked...because not having one at all is a huge pain in the *beep*
Then*angel harps*......then*the lights of Heaven part the clouds* THEN, I found these......
When I took out the drawers, I found some lady's underwear shoved on the deep back corner...Ummm..wonder who was hiding those from who? *snicker*
We had recently painted our bedroom from red to navy blue with metallic gold and lime-ish green accents, so I knew I wanted to stay away from yellow (a favorite) or green (another favorite) especially since my living room is also green/blue/yellow
(Its my favorite color combo thank you to the blue sky, the green tree's and the yellow sun)
but I wanted this space to be slightly different..
I went with an orange-pink-coral color. It couldnt be too pink because the Mister would hate them..but I didnt want orange so, I went with Carmine Red from Behr which was actually the most perfect shade of compromise ever! I copied this from my favorite color of flower..and yes, I actually took the petals into Home Depot to get it perfect. Hello OCD.
In the can, the Mister wasnt thrilled...It looked neon...however, I knew better
I actually has chosen different hardware...bigger and more clunky, but they only had 7 in stock and wasnt able to ship me the rest for 10-14 days....I do not have the patience of a Saint so I went to my plan B and I think it might have worked out better. Thank you Universe.
Distressed and oil rubbed right down
In their new space..where they fit perfectly..*puurrrrr*
and why, yes..those are album covers framed and hanging on our wall.. Some of our favorite bands in all there vintage glory. I just brought home the headboard a couple days ago and my project for today is building some "stilts" to raise it up a tad higher...Love my pillow top mattress but, for the headboards sake..this combination will require some power tools to make them live in harmony together..in anycase, it *shouldnt* be too difficult.
I luv them and swear, I think I slept better knowing that this baby was beside me..The Mister now likes them especially since I got rid of that empty dresser he used to use and wack his hand/head/leg
(?? I know..wha?!) on it during the night..
And as if these baby's wernt perfect enough...they were $5 each.(yes, thats what I said..$5each)..plus paint $20 (even tho I always use mistints..I had to have this color) plus hardware ($14.50...yes for all 12)
Perfectly perfect in every way.
