A couple weekends ago (two to be exact), I made myself feel a bit handy and repainted an old nightstand to be used in Cruz's ever evolving toddler room.
I got the idea from this Spearmint Baby post, and I knew I wanted to do something similar with this old nightstand we had lying around from what was our guest bedroom in the basement, which has since become Cruz's toy room.
I fully intended to copy the exact look, except in black & white, but then at the last minute changed my mind and went this route instead. And it was easy. As in easy peasy, grab a glass of wine, your favorite iTunes playlist and go to town.
- A lame, old nightstand
- Sandpaper - 80 grit first, 120 grit to smooth it out
- Paintbrush and a small roller
- Plastic drop cloth
- Painter's Touch white gloss & black gloss
- A corkscrew to pop the top off the paint cans
- And a wine glass filled with your choice of vino
Seriously, if you've seen my disjointed pins on Pinterest lately, you know I change my mind weekly on the theme of Cruz's room. I was in love with the idea to do a cool superhero room, but Nick was oddly against that. Then I thought a car/Route 66 theme, but I bought a bunch of knick knacks and quickly decided that wasn't for me, err Cruz. I've thought about baseball, lego, farmer...you name it, it's probably crossed my mind.
Here is all I know, I want to paint the walls white and either change up the gray/white stripes on one wall to black & white OR all white with Urban Walls decals.Then figure out a theme/pop of color.
Any ideas? If you have a sec, could you check out my board and let me know your favorite theme?
Come on now, I could really use the help. =)
