New to Me Nightstand


In my last post I admitted I was addicted to discounts. But I have another confession: My name is Kelly and I’m addicted to garage sales. Phew! I’m so glad I got that off my chest. (As if it was really a secret.)

I have been lucking out lately and I’m so giddy about a recent find that I just had to share!

Here she is.Yellow distressed nightstand found at garage sale Isn’t she a cutie?! And it was only $5! Whaaat?!

We have been in need of replacing the nightstands in the master bedroom ever since we painted and I stenciled an awesome accent wall. (Read about it here.) So I was very excited when I came across this piece.

It needed a good, deep cleaning (I think I used half a roll of paper towels), but then it was good as new again!

It’s a nice solid piece made of real wood and it already has that distressed look I love! I’m not sure if that’s intentional or not, but at least I don’t have to do anything more to it. Wahoo!Gray and blue bedroom with yellow nightstand I think the yellow goes well with the pillows on our bed and helps brighten up the room. Even though it doesn’t have drawers, I like the uniqueness of the tiered shelves.Nightstand with tiered shelvesI even love the little crescent moon cutouts on the side. It truly is a “night” stand. Haha!Distressed nightstand with crescent cutoutsNow we just have to find something for my husband’s side of the bed (and replace the lamps).Master bedroom nightstand We — and I mean he — may end up building a nightstand, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop looking around. The hunt is half the fun! Don’t you agree?!
