One of the spaces I've struggled with in this apartment is the bedroom. The layout is rather funky and I think I've tried at least 8 different nightstand variations since August. I figured out the nightstand situation on my side of the bed a few weeks ago (the mirrored nightstand I've had for 6 years is now in my living room, and my desk serves as my nightstand), but my husband's side is a different story. The mirrored nightstand wouldn't fit because my desk takes up so much wall space, so I've been switching out every side table I own to try to figure out what works best. Then last week, right before my home tour photo shoot, I found a 1960's campaign nightstand at my local Salvation Army! I've loved campaign style furniture for quite a while now, so I was ecstatic when I stumbled upon this piece! It's made by Hendredon, it's in great condition, and it was only $39!
Isn't it fabulous? The finishing is the original tortoise shell pattern, which supposedly is pretty rare and I've seen this same piece listed online for a whole lotta money. Here's my dilemma though...should I leave it like this? Or paint it white???
