Remember this post about my garage sale find?
Originally when I saw this table I thought it would make a perfect nightstand for my Master bedroom. After about a day I realized that it was all wrong, but for lack of something better I just left it.
Well a few weeks ago we found some new nightstands at a garage sale for only $5!
They aren't perfect at all but I really didn't want to spend $70 a piece on nightstands, so for now, they will have to do!
The color was similar to the other but they were so dirty that I just decided to refinish them to match my bed.
First I took them outside and sanded them down to get rid of all the imperfections.
Then I started spraying.
I got this nifty little handle that made this step so easy.
Next I sanded the edges down to distress it and then went over it with a wood stain.
Here is the final project:
I think its an improvement.
While I was at it I recovered this little foot stool to match better (plus my Husband spilled shoe polish on it).
Looks like I need to trim the excess underneath :)
Now I am still looking for some pretty lamps to go on my nightstands to complete the look.
Not a bad change for only $5, actually more like $15 after supplies, but still not bad!!
