Haley's Night Stand

It's funny...life.

Things happen and then they come back around again.

What am I talking about?

A couple of years ago, someone gave me four wooden finials. She new that I re-purposed things and might have a use for them.

Fast forward to garage sale season. I found this night stand...and I knew I could make it into something fun but I hated the legs and drawer knob. Out went the knob and off came the legs. Then I remembered that I had the finials. So I put them on as legs and primed it all white...waiting.

Waiting on an inspiration and time to transform it.

Then, I was asked to paint a night stand for our friends granddaughter. I used some of the ceiling color from her room to paint the night stand to coordinate. I personalized it for her and tried to make it match, but not so much that if she changed her bedding, it would still work in the room.
I actually was in her room and got this inspiration picture of her bedding.

Scrapbooking paper as drawer liner.
Simple stripes and block painting.
There are those finials as legs now!
Here is the funny life part...SHE is the young girl that had these finials on a piece of furniture. Her Mom gave them to me and now they are going back to her on another piece of furniture as LEGS!

Would that be, "What comes around goes around"?
Would that work for this instance?

  1. How Cute! Love that you were able to use other pieces that you were hanging on to. The legs made a big difference, really dressed it up!

  2. I visited so many blogs but I noticed in your blog that, your work is always so gorgeous and you have a wonderful eye catching details and putting small elements together to make a spectacular creation.

  3. Oh my gosh, how perfect is that, Terry! She's got a piece of that old furniture used in a new way. I had a similar situation. I picked up a child size table and chairs from a friend of my daughter's, that they were getting rid of. It was the same table and chairs my daughter sat at with this friend playing tea party. Newly painted and refreshed for my granddaughter {her daughter} to play tea party now.

    Love the stripes and her name on the top. Those finials turned out to be great legs!

  4. I LOVE doing projects for a person. I did a quick one day on a small table for my son this week. It wasn't the most amazing tranformation, but he loved it...and that is all that mattered. :)
