A Night Stand

Back in November I found a small table at Goodwill and purchased it to use as a night stand in the master bedroom.  The plan was to find something similar and paint them both the same.  But I got side tracked, once I painted that first table, I fell in love with it being downstairs.






You can read all about that transformation here.


Now fast forward to a couple of weeks ago.  I was visiting my local Goodwill again, and there it was.  The perfect mate for my once imagined night stand.  I decided to go back to my original plan and bought the second table for 9.99 and I'm going to use both in my master bedroom.


Before


After
I love this table!  Everything about it!
































Here are the two side by side.



I'm really excited about getting the master bedroom put together.


On a side note, here is today picture of my little bud.
Yesterday I had such high hopes, the sun was shining bright and the temperature warmed up a bit.  Today it is cold and snowing.

I love comments!  Please let me know you stopped by!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I agree on the white knobs, sometimes another set of eyes is all that is needed to see the small stuff.

  12. Hi,

    Stopping by from Savvy Southern Style. I thought the first remade nightstand was a beauty, and then when I saw the second one - I forgot all about the first! Call me fickle, I fell in love all over again :) I LOVE the finish you did on the second nightstand. I don't know for a fact that it is the "natural" wood color showing underneath in places (on the second nightstand), but it sure looks like that and I love how that looks. It has the look of expensive (very expensive) Italian "provincial" - you know, the stuff the billionaires pile up in their Mediterranean villas. Either or both of your redone nightstands would go GREAT in my place - alas, not a Mediterranean villa.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, I love Savvy Southern Style! I know exactly how you feel, I loved the first one until I found the second one. That actually is not the natural wood showing through, and I just posted on how I achieved this look. I hope you will check it out and give it a try yourself.

  13. I love the transformation and definitely looks very expensive. What base color did you use? I'm in the middle of refinishing a chair...it's been sanded, primed and painted. I need to add the dry brush color. I'm a new follower...hope you follow my blog as well.

  19. Hi Lorna! I love, love, love the nightstands. Will you be sharing how you did this? Please, please! Yes, I'm begging! Did you sand? Did you prime? Did you polyurethane? Was there a special paint you used? I've only redone furniture that involved stripping the wood. That's why I don't redo furniture anymore! But, I would love to try this. I'm enjoying your website!
