D. All of the Above
Yeah, I kind of made a bright blue mess.
Let me back up. Last month after the garage sale, JD and I drove back a bunch of furniture from my parents and grandma. None of it really fit together. There were neat antique typewriters, my old nightstand, tons of old frames, and random linens. Everything screamed: project!
Then, former housemate Claire gave us a queen-sized mattress and headboard, and we were thrilled to furnish the guest bedroom rather than throw in air mattresses when guests arrived. I now have a nightstand and bed…. except they didn’t match.
Also, last week, I found this cool post from Design*Sponge about a blogger who transformed a boring credenza into a brightly colored piece, and it looked great! I commented on Design*Sponge that I loved the color and could the blogger tell us what color she used? She never responded, but I sure liked her “zing” and decided that I wasn’t going to tarry any longer. I wanted to do something wild and bright to the nightstand and headboard and officially transform our guest bedroom.
Long story short: three trips to Lowe’s, a primer and two coats of paint later, I have definitely “brightened up” the furniture. What do you think?

Give me a few weeks… I need a metal bedframe and a week or so to put the look together, but your thoughts? Fun? Bright and beautiful? Or are you a bit nauseous?
