You can be jealous - my nightstands are amazing!! And I'm here with a quick tutorial for you of how to make nightstands from a desk.
You see the pop of color they bring to that whole wall (um, just ignore that the pillow isn't really sewn - it's just fabric wrapped around some other pillow to help you and I visualize what the look could be if I ever get around to sewing pillows.....) (remember, my wall stencil can be seen here and the ceiling inset dilemma can be seen here)
So yep, these came from a desk - seriously!! I can't take credit for the idea - my sister-in-law said she was chopping up a desk to convert it to nightstands, and I thought it was genius. So I started haunting Craigslist for a cheap desk. I found it, solid wood - for $10 - awesome!! The top was a little rough, but that's part of the charm, right?
I enlisted Trevor's help. He cut free each stack of drawers from the middle part. Aren't I nice to showcase his new motorcyle :)
You can do this!!
