First, I saw this…
[via Decor Demon]
Which led to Craig’s List, and then I found this…
I dreamed of painting these nightstands a very light gray, almost white, just like in the inspiration picture above. Then I would spray the handles black. And I would lay in bed every night smiling at them while stroking my cat’s head. And perhaps sip some wine. And leisurely read. Did I say every night? All day. In bed. Reading.
*pop* back to reality.
Today, I felt sick all day, but I just HAD to see these nightstands. Tonight, we made the drive and met them in person.
Hi, nightstands. Not solid wood. Not Nick’s style. And I have to say, not my style until that inspiration picture messed with my head a little bit. The seller was willing to go lower (much lower) than the price indicated above, but it just wouldn’t work.
Bahhh. Nightstand plan, round three:
1. Campaign dressers, painted white (via little green notebook). 2. Ikea Rast dressers, painted and made pretty (via Aubrey + Lindsay). 3. Modern dressers from BoConcept (via BoConcept’s catalog, somewhere in there). 4. Mirrored nightstands (via Crate & Barrell).
Right now, we’re leaning towards the campaign dressers. It’s been a long, hard, and dangerous road, but I think I’ve finally convinced Nick that they are awesome furniture. Let’s see if we can find them IN REAL LIFE.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Insults? Any Langston Hughes fans out there?
