Hello, little gems! I have been M.I.A recently on the island secret and I want to apologize to everyone who supports us. I have been going through some big life changes these past few months and one of the newest changes is moving in with my good friend Kelsey.
With moving into a new apartment I decided I wanted some new, updated furniture but after looking at prices on-line and in stores, my bank account had other ideas. I turned to Used Victoria, a site where you can buy, sell and trade almost anything. While browsing through the 'free items' section I came across these beat up and outdated night stands and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to put my DIY thinking cap on.
I headed to Home Depot and chose a red mahogany stain and silver handles. After many hours of sanding and many coats of stain, the night-stands were complete! I need to send a big thank you to my dad for helping me with all the hard work. If he hadn't helped me out I would still be outside sanding and staining. We are both so happy at how they turned out and even talked about how refurnishing furniture could become a side project for us.
Here are a few extra photos from around the new apartment.

I can definitely say that after moving 14 times in the past 4 years I am ready to stay put and enjoy my time at this new apartment.
