Does you bedroom furniture feel “off” – like it’s not quite complete?

Always the rebel, for so long, I felt like beds with matching nightstands were, well, too matchy matchy.

So our bedroom had mixed matched white nightstands paired with our aged wood Modern Farmhouse Bed (plans here).

Do you agree something is just off?  Our bedroom just felt like a room with random furniture in it.  Not the calming master suite that I was going for.

So this week, I decided to do something about it.  I went against my fear of conforming …. and built MATCHING NIGHTSTANDS.

Same room.  Same bed.  Same wall paint color.  New nightstands.

What. A. Difference.

I also added a rug, simplified the bedding, printed new artwork from Etsy, and more curtains.  Of course, all these things help – but nothing made a difference like building the matching nightstands.

The good news is these nightstands are quick and easy builds – I promise! – and not hundreds of dollars in materials, so you can upgrade your bedroom too, without breaking the bank.

Use as an End Table Too

This nightstand can also be used in the living room as an end table or occasional table.

Here it is next to a standard living room side chair.

We love it sooooo much in our living room – we might have to make a couple more … and a matching coffee table?!?!  What do you think?
