We are finally settled into our new house with our new baby. And I am finally getting around to re-do our master bedroom. I had not liked the furniture arrangement when we first moved in. Plus the rug, curtains and bedding just didn’t look right in the new room.
We also needed larger nightstands as I am forever knocking things off mine. Anyway in my normal fashion I didn’t want to pay full price for new ones.
So I have been on a hunt for several months. This is the style I was looking for.
I spotted these solid oak nightstands at a local antique shop near my home. I thought they had potential, and I liked the fact that they were solid wood.
So I purchased them. And then promptly cut the legs off.
Yall, at this point I was so tickled that they looked so much better already. But just wait!
Once I got to this point I painted the furniture with my new favorite paint, Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black to match my bed.
Next I went on a search for an inexpensive leg option. I found several that I liked on Amazon in the $15 each range, but since I needed 8 of them I kept looking.
Amazon came to the rescue with these sofa legs with steel hardware for $5.00 each.
So I grabbed 8 and a can of oil rubbed bronze spray paint for the metal foot.
I also ordered cup pulls from Amazon that fit the holes already drilled in the drawers, $2.19 each.
Once they were all painted my husband cut some simple 2×4 supports to hold the new furniture legs.
Viola! Can you even believe the difference?
This is hands down my favorite furniture project I have ever worked on.
I think they will pair so well with my other bedroom furniture, new rug and bedding.
Thanks for reading!
