Miss M loves pink. Anything and everything pink. I thought it would be fun to add a splash of pink to her room. Her bed and dresser are white and her walls are green so pink will pop in her room. I found a cute French Provincialish nightstand and desk on Craigslist for $20. That is a steal around here. French Provincial stuff usually goes for a lot more so I was happy about that. Plus the lady lived less than a mile from me so that made it easy.
They started out as the typical creamy white with gold accents. The nightstand was pretty beat up. Here's the before:
It took a lot of sanding to get this bad boy cleaned up. I them primed and painted it a metallic pink that I got at Home Depot in the Oops section for $1. Can't beat that! I added the white detail to make it pop even more. I spray painted the old knob with a white gloss paint.
Here's the after:
I love how it turned out. Can't wait to tackle the desk. Miss M thinks it's pretty cute, too. I'm going to be hiding it away and saving it for her birthday. I think she's going to love having a "big girl" makeover of her room when she turns 4.
What do you think? Did you do anything crafty this weekend?
