You'll remember I found this at Canton and made it into my night stand - advice from mom, It could be a dresser in your nursery! - alright :)
The dilemma - how will I ever find something to match?? Then came an idea, one so ahead of it's time... just paint it! why does paint make everything look better? newer? fresher?
So here is a little Before and After fun!
Before. Blake's old college nightstand.
I took the drawer of my new Canton dresser to Home Depot - after a very quick interaction with the paint guy (he did NOT want to be there and had no interest in any of my inquisitive questions.. oh well..) and a "beep beep" under their fancy paint computer, I went home with a pint of the same yellow that was used on my night stand!
During. A little DIY in Mullin.

And, an After!
Now we have coordinating night stands in a delightful throw back yellow that makes our master one stride closer to the finish line! Let's take a closer look at those knobs - my favorite part.
the Canton dresser. I don't know if they're new or were original with the piece, but I drool over them, kinda what sold me on it..
Blake's old-new night stand with repurposed Anthropologie knobs!
We upgraded the knobs on the television stand to darling little turtles - so we had these left over! They work for me... same color - same vintage feel and they both have a round-ish shape.
Overall, I love our new night stands and I smile each time I pass them on the way to the bathroom. What could be happier than yellow?
