I just finished the nightstand that I bought with my midcentury bedroom dresser (if you missed the dresser, click HERE to see it). It was in way worse shape than the actual dresser and I opted for painting the entire piece.
My son wanted the nightstand for his room since he didn’t have one yet and when I asked him what colors he wanted, he said “something cool and similar to yours.”
He didn’t want the neon pink but loved neon, so I bought neon orange. Orange is one of my husbands and son’s favorite colors! There is also a very sad story behind it which has annual meaning for us over Memorial Day, but this wasn’t supposed to be a sad post. Lets change the subject and go back to the nightstand.
For the trim I went with metallic blue. It looks a little like automotive paint.

And my son bought the little Eifel towers on his trip to Paris last year.

|Did any of you Americans read “Asterix and Obelix” cartoons growing up? My son loves them and so did I.|
And I actually love the contrast of the 200 year old French antique bed paired with the colorful midcentury modern nightstand. I’m total aware that this isn’t for everyone and some might cringe.
