Project Three: Painted Nightstand

A week or two ago, I visited a beautiful future housemate in her beautiful hometown of Portland, OR. While there, she took me to House of Vintage, a sprawling store comprised of dozens of independent rooms filled with vintage treasures. I found this gem buried in one of the first rooms we entered:


This little nightstand is a slightly beat up, so I bought some standard navy blue paint and gave it a fresh coat. For a little decoration, I opted to paint the words of a poem all around in a lavender color. I’m so happy with the outcome!


The poem is one I wrote months ago about waking up slowly. The topic seemed to fit appropriately!
