How We Met This Campaign Nightstand
Kids, I’m going to tell you a story about how we met this campaign nightstand. It was “like at first sight.” This curbside find wasn’t as pitiful looking as the majority of the items we haul home. In fact, if the paint had not been chipping from the top, we would have left it as we found it. But the paint was chipping and a makeover was in order.
The nightstand was painted a solid, robin’s egg blue when we brought it home. Every part of it was blue. The hardware hadn’t even been removed before painting. It looked nice from a distance, but closer inspection revealed flaws. Yet, we really loved the color. Hmm… What to do?
Never let anyone tell you that television is a total waste of time. If we hadn’t been binge watching “How I Met Your Mother” on Netflix, Landon might never have noticed the side table that is beside the sofa in Ted’s apartment. While Ted was waiting to meet the future mother of his children, we were drooling over the table that was eerily similar to our nightstand.
