Fab Find

I have been looking for nightstands for our bedroom since we got back from Paris. The night stands we had matched our bedroom suite but they have always been too small. Only a few items would fit with the lamp.  I have always loved the height. Now a days you don't have to have matching pieces. I had my eye on some mirrored night stands, but hubby was not on board with it for our bedroom. He said they were not practical, for everyday use. I didn't want to admit it but he was right.

I happen to go to Rooms to go outlet and found theses drawers that were supposed to sit on the dresser. I got them for 30.00 each.

I have had them for a few months and I just could not figure out how to them work so that they would not look like I put them together. I wanted them to be the same height of our old ones. They also needed utility. HELP, I needed an inspiration piece.

One day I was looking through House Beautiful and found this bathroom vanity and there it was, this is how I would make it work. I also liked the color of the other inspiration, however my headboard it's kinda goldish, I knew I wanted a metallic but not silver.

You can't tell by this picture,  I used Ralph Lauren Metallic Paint. The color is called Gilt Bronze.We love them! Hubby was very patient with me watching me order legs, buying wood, and changing my mind when he was cutting for me. This gives us utility with the baskets and also a place to put our laptops/tablets and magazines.
