Well, I was at the hardware store the other day (made it there while the parents-in-law were in town helping with baby) purchasing some paint to complete my drapery project when I spotted some decorative brass furniture corners. I’d been trying to think of a way to dress up the cheap white IKEA Lack side tables that I’m using in the guest room as night stands. This seemed to be the perfect solution – adding the hardware gives them a bit of a campaign furniture quality. It was super easy, just a small drill bit and screwdriver were needed. I finished the project in about 10 minutes.
Of course, prior to getting out my tools I was perusing the blogosphere / procrastinating and came across a post from Jenny at Little Green Notebook about the exact same project. So much for my original idea. I guess there really is nothing new under the sun. Fortunately, Jenny’s post has inspired me to eventually move these to the family room to use as coffee tables. I’ll repurpose the master bedroom nightstands in the guest room and then find a new solution for the master (which I’ve been wanting to do for a while). Perhaps some draped tables with borders like this.
