How were your weekends? Mine was great, a good mix of relaxation, celebration (yay Canada!) and productivity. I had set aside some time to work on our place and to be honest didn’t check nearly enough off my list (read: relaxation) but I did finally place some new and fun handles onto our nightstands. The search for some nightstands took a lot longer than anticipated. It’s hard when decorating for a couple – I can do girly, no problem, but I’m sure that Andrew wouldn’t appreciate it. I was set on black or dark wood which is totally different than my usual “all white, all the time” mantra. I liked how it was a little more masculine, edgy and not too overpowering since mostly everything else in our loft is lightly coloured. I was searching Kijiji for a while to try and score an older night stand that I could revamp and quickly realized that without any outdoor space, it would be difficult to paint or do any major updates. A friend at work had mentioned that she found these at IKEA, and was happy with them and as it turns out, were exactly what I was looking for (not to mention that the price was right as well!). To give them a little more character, I searched for some need handles to replace the ones they came with. While I initially wanted something gold, I knew these were the ones once I set my eyes on them at West Elm. They were so pretty and fell for the colour! They were a little pricey but the good thing is that they will live on even after I say goodbye to the nightstands.
