Night Stands And Dollar Store Mirror Chargers –
I have been working on a few Diy projects around the house,
and I am excited to have one finally completed to share with you!
Hey – I am glad to have one finally completed period!!
Some of you may remember I brightened up my Master Bedroom
last summer with new sheets and curtains.
And then I “Wintered” it up a little last November
I have been using those wrought iron pieces as night stands for several
years now, and was getting tired of them.
I wanted something lower, with storage and a drawer.
I stalked Craigs list for awhile, but couldn’t find what I was looking for.
I finally got some used ones from a friend of mine, $25 for both.
They really are the same, she had painted one and I removed the drawer
from one before taking the picture. They were very close to what I was looking for.
I had thought about painting them white, but all of the furniture in our bedroom
is either black or dark wood. So I decided on a flat black paint.
I didn’t sand the tables before painting them
and my husband assures me
I will regret that.. but I think I have mentioned before that I am a lazy crafter..;-)
I was very happy with the way they turned out!
Here is the one on my husbands side of the bed…
Pretty much packed with stuff huh..
He tends to hit the pillows and fall right asleep.
I am a little more high maintenance..
As you can see by my side!
I was very happy with the tables, but now I wanted something
to go on the wall above them. I was thinking I would like to put
some round mirrors on the wall. Then I remembered they have those
small round ones at the dollar store. I tried to think of what I had that
I could put a mirror on, and I remembered these white wooden
chargers I bought from Pier 1 last summer.
You can still get them – $14
I used Dischangers on the back of them so I could hang them on the wall.
I love these things!
Then I put a dollar store mirror in the center with some of that
spongy reusable wall strips, and it was perfect!!
I like it!
I do want to replace the lamps, however.
I can’t decide if I want some wall sconces, hanging lights, or different table lamps.
I just know I want something else!
I also need to do something about that window behind the bed.
It really bugs me that the curtain isn’t centered to the bed.
There is basically no where else in our room to put the bed, and the window
is not centered on the wall because we combined two rooms and put in a bathroom.
I may just have to get a larger rod and put another panel on it so I can
at least center the curtain.
My husband, of course, tells me it can’t be done because there is not
another stud to anchor the rod on the wall.
Every time he tells me “can’t be done” it is like I am even more
determined then ever to make it work!
I am open to any suggestions!
Thanks so much for stopping by! And you know I always welcome comments!!
