I officially declare today... HOUZZDAY*!
And my first HOUZZDAY is all about nightstands
I've talked about how I can't wait to buy a new home so I can finally settle in somewhere and focus on creating a bedroom I can be proud of. Well, I don't know when that's going to happen and... my patience to redo my room is running thinnnn. So I'm not waiting anymore. And since I'm still on a itty bitty budget, I'm scouring the internet (mainly Houzz) for inspiration, to help narrow down what I really really want (for some reason I'm feeling like a spice girl right now), and to do it on a BUDGET.
First up is the nightstand. I already know what I want in a bed and have started working on that so I'm trying to finalize inspiration for my nightstand.
In my dreams.....

Closer to reality...
This last photo is a Ikea Rast Dresser hack. The dresser is $39.99 but it's raw (not painted). It's perfect for a DIY project. Here is one example from another blog. Her link is below the picture.

I love how something so simple and blah turned into that! I would probably go darker in the wood color (closer to a black stain) and I have some different ideas for drawer pulls. Stay tuned because I will be attempting my own creation in the coming weeks!
Do you have any other ideas for me to recreate a contemporary style dresser on the cheap? What do you think of the two toned look? Do you think I can pull off something closer to the above photos? Do share!
You can also link up to share your own HOUZZ ideas. Whatever decor kick you're on at the moment, I want to hear about it! The linky will be open for a week so feel free to join in and since I know this is super short notice (or none at all) I will have a new linky up next week!
* If you don't know what Houzz is, you're missing out. It's an online inspiration board/source for everything for the... you guessed it, HOUZZ!
