Colorful and refreshing nightstand makeover

Here we are with another interesting and inspiring makeover project. This time we turned our attention to what used to be a nightstand. In this case, what’s particularly interesting is that these two nightstands were in perfectly good condition and they were actually quite expensive. I guess its owner really wanted to exercise her DIY skills and this wasn’t just one of those projects where you have something that you no longer use but decide to transform it rather than throwing it away.

The two nightstands were each transformed into something else. One of them was turned into another kind of nightstand while the other became a lovely side table. They were both repainted and got a fresh new look. They now feature a lovely tone of pale green, very beautiful and soothing, especially for the bedroom. The piece that became a nightstand preserved its shape and structure. It just got a fresh coat of pastel paint and some webbing on the door. The result is surprising and very stylish.

The other nightstand became a side table. I didn’t get to preserve its structure or shape. The nightstand got a complete makeover and it’s unrecognizable. The owner kept the door and created a cubic structure that she then placed on four stylish, vintage-style legs. She actually used only the interior square-shaped part of the door and added the same webbing as the one used for the other nightstand. She now has two original and unique pieces of furniture that she proudly say she made by herself.{found on curbly}.
