I usually get so excited and rushed to start a new project that I forget to take "Before" pictures, as is the case with this one. I bought this mahogany nightstand off the classifieds for $30. A little spray paint and a new handle, and this is what we have now. It's for Ava's room.
See that little ball clock on the right? That's an Ok To Wake alarm clock. It's the greatest thing ever (for toddlers). You set an alarm time on it, and when it hits that time the ball glows green, letting your toddler know that it's ok to get out of bed now. It took a few months for Ava to get the hang of it, but now it's a beautiful thing. It helps her to sleep in a little more if she gets to bed late (she used to always wake up at the same time no matter what time she went to bed). Can you tell I'm a fan?
