Nightstand: Before and After

Space is at a premium in our guest room, which is also my craft room. I redid the room back in September and am still happy with the results. Although I have always thought that I needed a second nightstand on the other side of the bed, but I wasn't able to find something small enough to fit. There is only about 10 inches between the wall and the bed. I know some of you are asking "then why not just push the bed those extra ten inches against the wall?" Well nothing drives me more crazy than when we stay the night at someone's house and my side of the bed is pushed up against the wall, meaning that I have to climb over Bryce if I want to get up or down. Hence the need for a tiny little nightstand.

Enter this little beauty I found at a yard sale for two dollars.

Bryce cut that top inch of the legs off for me and I gave it four coats of "Fuzzy Navel" yellow paint and this is what we ended up with. 

The perfect size nightstand for a very small space.

I still love the gray and yellow combo in here, but I'm thinking a pop of color is in order. Maybe a little red? We'll see what I find at the next yard sale.
