Chippendale Night Stands

I redid my bedroom about a year ago (went a lot lighter).  Usually when I redecorate a room I can't wait to get it all filled up again, so I will make do with certain things even though they aren't exactly what I want.  This time I decided I would exercise a little patience and wait for just what I wanted.  Well, I'm kinda picky so my room has been pretty bare for the last year.  I've been looking for two matching night stands, but they needed to be a little narrower than most I've seen.  I've been keeping an eye out on CL and FINALLY I found two that I just love, and they are the perfect size!

I usually want to keep the things I redo and this time I get to!!  Woo hoo! :)


*these are only reproductions and were actually made in Indonesia.  

You can just imagine the happy dance I did when I found these, right? ;)

I've absolutely love the color of the radio cabinet and the desk/vanity I recently finished and it was the perfect color for an accent in my bedroom (even though hubby's not too keen on it!  I'm hoping he'll come around!).  


I lightly distressed all the details and then glazed them with stain/mineral spirits so it wasn't too heavy. 

I'm so in love with this soft green/blue!  

Now I can satisfy my leg/foot fetish every day and not even have to get out of bed to do it!   A ball and claw foot are my absolute favorite!!

These carved drawers are awesome, but I'm not really a gold kind of gal so the hardware just wasn't cuttin' it.   I simply sprayed the original hardware with Oil Rubbed Bronze.

<3 this back piece too!

Happy Hump Day!!

(I was afraid they might be a little tall, but they are perfect!  Craig came home and said, "You don't like them, right?" Lol!  I'm sure after a week he won't even notice them anymore. *fingers crossed!)
