Throwback Tuesday: Neon Nightstand

The neon nighstand’s gots to go!

But it’s not going down without a few tears…actually…no not really.  It’s just that this nightstand has been with me, and that color, for a LONG time.  We’re talking circa 1998 here.  The nightstand was one of the crowning achievements of my high school bedroom, which I decorated myself in technicolor, during my freshman year of high school.  I’m not kidding when I say my high school room was technicolor.  We’re talking orange walls, yellow ceiling, and pops of neon yellow, green and blue as accent colors.  Oh…and a rainbow blanket and some plaid curtains rounding it out.  Don’t believe?!  Well it’s throwback day so check out the hot mess for yourself:

Yes…those are beaded curtains and Coke lights.  Aren’t you glad my style has evolved a little bit since high school?!  Anyway…did you notice the green/blue neon nightstand in my high school bedroom?  The poor guy has been with me through more moves than I can count on two hands but has yet to be painted.

So I’m dubbing it time…time to finally give that sucker a new outfit.  I’ve been going back and forth about what color to paint him, but here’s what I’m thinking:

A mustard yellow would be a nice little accent color to go with the soft neutrals in the room and the wedding table number art that we hung on the wall.  The red was my first instinct and the color of choice for the nightstand in my original master bedroom mood board.  And the army green color is a deeper tone than the Valspar Ante Meridian wall color for a tone on tone action.  I’m seriously leaning red…serious like a librarian about the quietness level serious.  Those librarians mean business!  But seriously, what do you think?!
