I’ve had a little love affair with the color mint green for awhile now. I’ve been wanting some mint decor somewhere in our home. I finally took the plunge and decided to use the color in my bedroom, creating the mint painted nightstand.
If you’ve been around here awhile you know that our master bedroom has been on my to do list since the beginning of the year when I listed my “home goals.” Well it’s finally getting some attention. The initial color scheme has completely evolved but I am really excited about it.
Say Hello! To the mint painted nightstand.
I also have a love affair with painting furniture. One of my favorite things is finding pieces and making them work for our home. That’s a necessity when you live in military housing 🙂 You are forced to think outside the box and perhaps use a piece for something other than it’s intended use. That’s what we did with this piece. We turned a little dresser into the perfect nightstand for our master bedroom!
This piece was in crazy poor shape. It was a craigslist find that had a great story behind it. The owner had it in her family for as long as she can remember at least 70 years. It’s top and drawers were badly damaged and it has been sitting in her garage for years. Since she didn’t have energy to repair or refinish it she decided to let it go. We were thrilled to welcome it to our family! My husband put a lot of work into it. He had to repair all of the drawers and the top and give it a good sanding before it was ready for paint.
Painting furniture is one of the best ways to bring color into a room, especially for those of us with the ugly eggshell white walls! This mint painted nightstand brings so much color into our room. The color I chose is a perfect shade of mint green. It’s Lowe’s Olympic Sweet Pea.
We left the original hardware on it. I love the vintage key holes too. Do those glass cabinet doors look familiar? I used them a few months ago in my Valentine’s Day Vignette. They are perfect in their new space on the nightstand.This dresser makes the best bedside table for our master bedroom. The wall that our bed sits against is long so this piece is the perfect size.
Ah, the mint. it’s so lovely. I am so excited that this space is starting to come together. I can’t wait to show you what we are working on next! What do you think?
