Nothing about this nightstand screams out ‘I belong in a little girl’s room.’ But maybe that’s because I don’t know how to listen. The transformation this nightstand undergoes should encourage all of us to give our old furniture a second look and a closer listen.

Melissa at Houseography must be a furniture whisperer to see a nightstand for her little girl in that solid old oak piece from her grandparents. Painting it pink is an obvious choice but the white stripe down the center catapults this project onto a whole new level. Thanks to Melissa for showing us that paint, creativity, and $5 for some new hardware can really make a big impact.
