Things, They are a Changing….

I have been spending a lot of time working on projects around the house, that I have had in mind for a long time.

One of those things is this night stand in our bedroom.  Not a favorite piece of furniture, I have had plans to paint it for a long time.  It is one of those items that the design wasn’t appealing to me, and I inherited it when I married my husband (who will not part with too many things, lol!) But it is heavy and the construction is better than most furniture I can find in many furniture stores.  Besides, I am a thrift store shopper at heart.

So this is how it came out.  Not too bad!

Here is the before picture.  I had plans to take out the middle panel of the doors, but it is so well built, I couldn’t get them out without really tearing the doors apart.

You can see how worn out the top is.  I even had to repair a small section of the veneer on the top.

It isn’t quite the way I would like it, but I figure that I will have to do some work to it after we sell the house, and move.  The inside isn’t really quite done yet either, but I really needed to just make it functional right now.  I used an heirloom white paint, and I purchased some glass knobs so that it matches the small pine armoir that I recently painted.

I also sanded off a little bit of the paint on some of the edges so that it has a little bit of that ‘worn’ look.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
