Night Stand Sketch

Night Stand Sketch


I’ve been working on a little inspiration board for Laelia’s big girl room for a few weeks now; I should just polish it so I can post it! This morning I was playing around with my nightstand sketch, and I came up with the above combination. I love the way the bold floral plays off the geometric of the quilt. I started the actual work on her nightstands this last Saturday. I’ve had the intention of putting wallpaper in there, but I can’t justify the price of this stuff. And then I remembered I can paint. Oh yeah… I CAN PAINT! >.> So, we’ll see how it goes. But the base is looking pretty nice!DSC_0404


Well, this photo highlights areas uncovered by paint… I now have to go put a millionth white coat inside that shelf! Yeesh!

P.S. This <$30 lamp is from target; I changed the color to be more of a true blue, which is probably how I will end up spray painting (Tyler really wants me to leave it, but I feel the current shade is just a little too off to not warrant an easy coat of spray paint).
