Leslie wanted to update her bedroom decor to a new cool, coastal theme – but these nightstands were stopping her in her tracks. Nothing says ‘cool’ and ‘coastal’ like knotty pine right?
Not so much.
That’s where I come in – time to take these bad boys from warm wood to dark and dramatic.
Leslie selected Benjamin Moore’s “Hale Navy” and it is spectacular! If you are looking for a navy blue nightstand, this is the colour you want – truthfully – I’m itching to paint something else in this elegant, rich hue – just gorgeous!
Leslie hadn’t selected out her knobs as at the time of delivery on these bedside tables, so I decided to play with photoshop a little and try out a few styles to see how they might look against the navy blue nightstand.
The first knob is a mercury glass octagon sort of piece – and while the photo doesn’t do it justice, I think it really would be quite striking – especially in a coastal themed room. The second knob is a white ceramic with flowers etched in royal – sort of ‘Ming-vase-like’ – I don’t think it would fit in with the cool, ocean feel, but it would look cute in a more farmhouse-style room.
This lamp (the entire display really) would be sharp with the mercury glass knob.
