Before I bought this nightstand, I had never stepped foot in an IKEA (gasp!). It wasn't for lack of wanting to, I just never had the opportunity before. As a former small-town gal, I haven't lived within driving distance of an IKEA up until I moved to the big city (more specifically, the Twin Cities) about a year and a half ago. Since moving, I've been putting off a trip to the IKEA because I know myself too well. I know that I love cute home decor, and I knew that I'd want to take everything in that store home with me. Impulsive purchasing aside, I needed a new nightstand. Let me tell you two things: #1. IKEA is awesome (and massive and a bit confusing at first - but they have Swedish Fish which totally made up for me getting lost), and #2. I love this TARVA IKEA nightstand because it is so hackable.
We've all seen them; they're at every yard sale and garage sale across the globe: plain, boring, or otherwise uninteresting pieces of furniture. But if there's one thing to be learned from our many Makeover Monday posts, it's this: think twice before you pass them up! With a little creativity and skill, the potential to transform those forgotten pieces is virtually limitless!
With the weather finally, maybe, starting to warm up it's just about time to start scrubbing off winter's dirt and grime and sprucing up that outdoor living space. If your vinyl furniture looks like it's seen better days, consider this colorful revamp!
Not our usual makeover fare to be featured here on Curbly, but what a makeover it is! John (last name 'Park') spotted this grody old Park Manufacturing Co. toolbox at a local flea market and was smitten. He took it home and gave it the makeover lover once-over. Check it
