Little Black Nightstand

My son’s little black nightstand has now been completed as well and I think he is happy too!

From a simple little night stand which I found out my father had used  as a little boy and came from my Grandmother’s house which I never knew!  This little night stand just somehow was relocated into my home. This happens a lot actually in my family …. we call it the Colombian swap.

Keeping the little night stand a simple black with silver knobs keeps his busy room grounded. As we have every type of sporting equipment in his room.

The antique pineapple four post bed which was given to us free is mixed with  bright striped Ralph Lauren bedding.

It’s easy to redecorate your children’s room without spending a lot of money.  Here are few ideas that I do

  1. Seek out your local antique shop to add a bit of history and character to your child’s room.
  2.  Be creative when you come across a great piece that may be the right size but wrong color.
  3. Ask family if they have any furniture in their basement. You never know what you will find!
  4. Great time of year for yard sales.
  5. Always see what the clearance area has first.

Good luck!

About chichomeantiquesblog

A lover of unique antique furniture with history and character. I take great joy in discovering forgotten pieces. Pieces that most people would pass by. I have such a passion for discovering, refinishing and repurposing great furnishings. I shop consignment shops, thrift stores, craigslist and of course antique shops to find those special unique pieces. I paint, sand, antique, glaze whatever it may be to bring new life to old furnishings. My life is full of family, good health, happiness, careers, and a very happy well loved home. I have very much to be thankful for in this world that I live today.
