Trash to Treasure - Night Stands

One man's trash can certainly become another man's treasure.  As is the case with my husband's lastest trash to treasure finds - these two night stands.  They both are in need of a little rehab, but I'm in love with their curves and vintage looks.

This open night stand now resides in our family room.  I'm still trying to figure out what color I should paint this stand.  It is currently spray painted a yellowish-green, which is cute in and of itself.  But it doesn't quite fit with our Caribbean Sunset walls and mossy green carpet (bleh!  the carpet will be replaced, eventually - not soon enough!).  I've thought about Heirloom White, the Atlantic Gray I used for my office console table, or maybe some shade of green.  Any ideas?

The other night stand is in our living/reading/used to be the family room - room.  It is sitting next to an oversized white slip covered chair.  I think I'm going to keep this one white, but still maintain the distressing around the edges.  We're planning on painting the dark paneling in this room a relaxing Eucalyptus Leaf color.  Should go well with the white accents.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sharing these trashy treasures at:
