BEFORE + AFTER

We were sold on these Baumritter nightstands (set of two) because of their solid construction, lovely details, and timeless, classic style.

Construction: Although they have been around for a long time, these tables are solid. It could be because they were “Made in Vermont” or because they were made before mass production of inexpensive furniture. Hmmm.

Details: We love the dovetailed drawers, tapered curved legs, and the perfect shelf that is ideal for artwork.

Style: A traditional silhouette that will meld nicely with other design styles in your home.

From blah to ooh-la-la. Our makeover gives these night tables the wow factor.

PAINT: We chose Farrow & Ball: Lamp Light Grey because it is neutral enough to blend with other colors, yet bright and cheerful. 

DETAILS: “Dipping” the legs in silver dresses them up a bit and adds a touch of modern. We also added sleek new hardware.

ARTWORK: In selecting artwork for the shelf, we chose birds since they are classic, loved by many, and, we have never been able to forget the Portlandia skit … “put a bird on it!”  

We would love to work with you on a project for your abode. Select a customizable piece from our shop (a dresser or a bar perhaps?) that fills a space in your home in need of an eye-catching pop. If there are elements of these night tables that speak to you, we can replicate those features and tailor them to your specifications.
