Pretty in Pink

Remember this nightstand I purchased for $0.50 at a local garage sale?


It’s now looking pretty…in pink…




Nate’s sister had me on the look out for an inexpensive nightstand that didn’t have a drawer.  She wanted it for my niece (who just turned 2).  She’s moving into her big girl room soon and needed a “new” piece of furniture.  She’s growing up so fast.  I’m excited to see her big girl room because her nursery cute is pretty cute! (The stripe looks a little brighter in this photo but it’s the same color as the nightstand.)

I have two “pros” on my “pros and cons” list regarding having children. One is decorating a nursery and the other is dressing the child in cute clothes….which probably explains why my only child is covered in fur!

This was a super inexpensive make-over for me.  I had all of the supplies I needed (you can read about my furniture painting process here).  Nate’s sister supplied me with the pink paint.  It also only took me about 1 1/2 hours to complete.  Not too bad.
