After some design research and treasure hunting I thought maybe a table like this would be a nice addition as my other nightstand. It's 'neutral' and lighter than the wood pieces that seemed to weigh the place down.

Sadly, with a near $600 price tag it was out of the question for now. I spent endless hours searching for a new table online, but just couldn't seem to find anything in my $100-200 price range. Then I remembered my parents had a wrought-iron little side table that, I thought they purchased at Ikea and could easily be spray painted a metallic! I was so pleased to find the entire Vittsjo collection, I got all sorts of new ideas for my room. Since this has been in progress for over half a decade now, I made myself stick to my original vision and started out purchasing the Laptop Table ($24!!) and THIS metallic spray paint in 'champagne' that seemed to match perfectly with my curtains.
I put it together in about 20 minutes and spent maybe 10 minutes giving it 2 coats of paint. 48 hours later I had a stunning side table!
After I got it in my room, however, something still just didn't feel quite right. I decided I needed to ditch my cherry desk (that was my first adult furniture purchase & that was so proud of myself for spending hours putting together myself!) and get the Vittsjo Desk ($40!!!). It was a tough choice, but a good one and I absolutely love the finished products! All for under $100.
