Ellen and her sister were cruising around their neighborhood one day when they spotted this nightstand sitting by the side of the road. It was in pretty good shape, if a bit outdated, so she immediately knew that she could give it a fun update.

She removed the door and hardware, sanded and filled the wood and gave it a coat of Valspar Citrus Green paint and new knobs. The interior got a subtle chevron fabric. We love how, with a few changes, Ellen was able to so dramatically change the look and feel of this piece.

Ellen says, "I only spent about $20 on this project. I'm glad I went bold as it's now a statement maker in my bedroom."

Thank you Ellen!
