i recently completed an e-design plan for candace,
my sister-in-law, nicole's sister.
she is an avid diy-er, and requested that the room be on a pretty tight budget,
and so of course, i turned to ikea for a few items,
including some night stands.
the rast chest of drawers is super affordable,
(29.99), and made of real wood, which i really like.
our inspiration piece is the elisabeth bedside table from oly studio,
which retails for a smooth $1600.
here is a peek at the elevation of the bed wall,
as well as a quick sketch that i drew.
the overall plan:
new top cut and edges routed.
new legs built.
curved elements and framing added to front.
we aren't going to do any silver leafing....
instead, the whole thing is going to be painted a
soft dark blue-green:
dartsmouth green 691.
you can track the progress of the room...
candace and nicole are blogging about it here.
