DIY Project: Kids Room Painted Nightstand


So.. I have been searching for a nightstand for my son's room for quite some time. His room is super tiny and the nightstand could be not more that 19" wide. He also needed a bit of storage, lets not forget style and did I mention that I am on a tight budget? 

I found this very cool cabinet that was meant to neatly store spools of thread and sewing accessories. I found it at a vintage shop in Montclair, NJ for $40.00!  I knew right away that I wanted to paint it orange since it is his favorite color. 

So simple, so affordable and so much fun!  The entire project cost me $58.00 and my 9 year old son thinks its absolutely cool!

 Just a little prep work (cleaning,  removing hardware, sanding and taping). The project was done in less than 3 hours.
