both candace and nicole are AMAZINGLY handy, and so when it came to redesigning her bedroom, she said she was on a tight budget, and was up for any type of diy challenge.
you better believe that i put her TO WORK!
(nicole is my sister in law, so that makes candace my sister in laws sister. is that confusing enough?)
anyway, candace has been making tremendous progress on the long list of DIY projects that i lined up for her.
she recently completed a pair of these oly inspired ikea rast nightstands:
isn't it amazing??
it is always so incredible to see something in REAL life that you dreamed up in your head!
here is the original piece that inspired me-the elizabeth bedside table from oly studio:
this is a sketch that i sent to nicole as she was starting to modify the fast night stands....
the nightstands are painted a soft dark blue-green by
benjamin moore: dartsmouth green 691.
here is a peek at them in progress...nicole is the genius who made my sketch into a reality!
a few of the other projects that candace has already completed for her bedroom:
(you can see the tutorials for each of these projects on their blog)
recovering two kmart stools and adding trim.
making a sunburst mirror.
making trimmed roman shades.
making a simple plant stand:
making pillows shams and a bed skirt,
and some accent pillows.
here is a peek at the plan that i put together for candace:
with all of these projects that candace has completed, it's kind of a miracle that she is still sane! i am so impressed with what she has been able to accomplish so far, and i am looking forward to seeing the FINAL reveal sometime soon.
