If you love bold, modern decor, you’re going to love the latest creation by Carrie from Thirty Eighth Street in Midnight Sky and Pocket Watch Metallic Cream! Come read all about this transformation.

Look at this pair of twins! They kind of remind me of a pair of bull dogs… short legs with a stocky body. 😉 I loved everything about these but, I had a problem. One of the doors was warped and there was nothing that I could do to fix that. So I improvised and decided to modernize these a bit. In less then 5 minutes, I had the door fronts removed along with the metal door magnets and hinges.

As soon as the doors were off, the nightstands appeared so much larger. There will be those that say, I’d rather own a nightstand so that I can hide my “stuff”. I get it. But, for these little gems it was a rather refreshing decision.

After the holes for the hinges were sealed with some wood glue and sanded smooth, I was ready to give these nightstands an exciting and dramatic overall. For this makeover, I used Midnight Sky Furniture & Home Decor Paint and a little bit of Pocket Watch metallic cream to brighten up the existing hardware.

Carrie {Thirty Eighth Street}

Hi! I’m Carrie from sunny Southern Arizona and blogger at Thirty Eighth Street. I live in a house full of rumble tumble boys and paint is my nail polish. I love the process of repurposing, reusing and recycling unloved furniture and turning them into show stopper pieces. I’m a firm believer that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to decorate a home. My mission is to demonstrate this, one piece at a time!
