Before & After: A Minty Fresh Nightstand Makeover

created at: 06/18/2012

I love seeing how people interpret more expensive furniture in their DIY projects! Check out how these nightstands get transformed -- and the inspiration behind the makeover.   

After spotting a $150 nightstand (yes, for ONE nightstand) at Urban Outfitters, blogger and DIY extraordinaire Meagan French knew what she had to do: create her own version for a fraction of the cost, of course!

She took a couple old IKEA pieces and gave them a minty fresh update, complete with their very own cane webbing. I love how they turned out! Check out how she did it, complete with a supply list and specific paint colors, over on her blog Craft Habit!

Here's the inspiration. Meagan did a great job interpreting this look, I say!

Hey, I have those two nightstands, I think they are Ikeas!  I was about to throw them out, not I might try and revitalize them

I love it. I didn't even notice the pretty curves at the bottom until it was painted.
