One of the pieces I painted was this small desk that doubles as a nightstand. Our bedroom isn’t very large and our master bathroom is even smaller than what can be described as a “master” anything! Doing my hair and makeup in our bathroom isn’t a viable option, especially when both Pretty Handsome Guy and I wake up at the same time. When I saw this little desk at a local thrift store, I grabbed it. Especially because she was only $20!
She had lots of age, but not much character.
However, she was the perfect size and had just enough storage for a makeup vanity.
With a light sanding, primer and a coat of Benjamin Moore Advance paint, she is now showing her more glamorous side.
Speaking of glam, take a closer look at the gold handles I found at House of Antique Hardware:
The tray, mirrored box and little wooden box for the makeup brushes are from TJ Maxx.
The gray herringbone boxes and the tufted ottoman are from Target.
Although—like most things at Target—I can’t seem to locate a link anymore. I suspect they may be gone now. I did paint the corners on the boxes gold to fit in with the button pendant light and the gold handles.
Nothing like a double duty piece of furniture to keep a small bedroom from becoming over crowded.
