Hi everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was interesting. Our air conditioning unit went out and with temps in the upper 90’s it felt like….well, you know!
Today I want to talk furniture for the ‘big boy’ room. I mentioned that I was torn between using one palette
Or, two palettes
I think two palettes will give me the look I’m going for. With that in mind, it was time to find nightstands. I thought the RAST chests from IKEA would work if stained, but the size was large to flank both sides of the bed. Then, I thought back to my vision for the room: Rustic meets clean and contemporary and a little modern (?). The palettes would be my rustic and the nightstands would be my clean/contemporary/modern. By the way, don’t ask me how I came up with that! Anywho….After going to IKEA for the fourth time in a week, I decided on the MALM nightstands in oak
Perfect! Clean lines, ideal height, and the oak veneer wouldn’t be to busy against the shipping palettes. And with a price tag of $39.99, they left room for lunch!
Here is a quick snap shot of the nightstands in the room (ignore the sleeping child and Mr. Potato Head!) After writing this post, I realized I didn’t have pictures of the nightstands in the room so I snapped one this morning…
They provide the perfect amount on storage for his clothes so I can bring in a desk and chair on the opposite wall. Now, if I can just manage to bring myself to painting the desk…
What do you think? Were the nightstands a score or a bore?! And, would you have chosen one palette or two?
