I’ve been wanting some mint decor somewhere in our home.

The owner had it in her family for as long as she can remember at least 70 years.

It’s top and drawers were badly damaged and it has been sitting in her garage for years. He had to repair all of the drawers and the top and give it a good sanding before it was ready for paint. I used them a few months ago in my Valentine’s Day Vignette.

I finally took the plunge and decided to use the color in my bedroom, creating the mint painted nightstand.

If you’ve been around here awhile you know that our master bedroom has been on my to do list since the beginning of the year when I listed my “home goals.” Well it’s finally getting some attention.

The last time I showed you my office/craft room, it had a new makeover and a fresh coat of paint.
