This is what my desk and nightstand looked like “before”- I don’t have a picture of the chair that goes with it, but it was a light oak wood with a black seat. I wasn’t a fan of the flowers and wanted a simple, clean, cohesive look. However, I couldn’t find a desk that I liked for the right price online- a quality solid wood desk was upwards of $1,000.
Pinterest and furniture websites are a great source of inspiration if you’re not sure what type of colors go together. If having someone else re-paint your furniture, having a picture to show what you want is important. (I’m not ready to go the DIY furniture route myself quite yet, so I found someone with more experience than me and she worked her magic).
New paint makes all the difference and you can save quite a bit by repurposing what you already have!
My sister found this vanity and bench on Craigslist for $50 and refinished it herself:
I love the fun cat fabric!
