Never Dust Again

Wouldn’t it be great if we never had to dust again?  No dust accumulating on top of furniture?

We had black furniture in our master bedroom.  I would dust and before I left the room, there would be dust back on the furniture.  It drove me crazy.

My solution?

Paint your furniture white! 

 

Our bed is super high off the ground.  I have to vault into bed every night.  Our old nightstands ended up being too low, so we each got taller pieces that work great!

Here’s the original piece that was given to me – yes, that means free.

Here is the new and improved version after some ASCP Old White was applied.

I am on the hunt for a basket to go where the S currently sits.  I seem to accumulate a ton of crap stuff on my bedside table, so I need to hide it.  The door is perfect for more of my crap stuff.

And the best part is that the table is the perfect height!  So a free piece of furniture solved multiple problems!

Have a great day!
