Wooden crates from Michael's Arts and Crafts $13/each. ($11 with my educator discount--yes!)
I looked online for some cool vintage or used crates, but they were even more expensive!
Grey acrylic paint. I had a big tube on hand and just wanted to some to match. In hindsight, spray paint would have been easier/faster due to the the rough surface of some of the slates of wood on the crate. I liked the rough look, so didn't want to sand, but it was a beast to get it all coated evenly!
$1.00/ tube (3 tubes)
These pretty little legs are from Home Depot.
2 night stands = 8 legs= $20 total ( little bit of an ouch)
Red(ish) satin finish spray paint for the legs.
That brings it to a TOTAL of $48.59 ($24.29 per night stand)
Some fun accessories to add!
Cute napkins from World Market work great as a night stand cover...because well, I guess nightstands need covers.
2 napkins for $4.00
Letter "L" at World Market
And all that turns into all this.....
