Before & After: Bedroom Nightstand


One of the major things on my to-do list for my bedroom was to find a new nightstand. I love refinishing furniture, so I was hoping for something rather "ugly" that I could then redo into something beautiful. I was getting really down, because every time I'd take a trip to Goodwill or Home Goods, I'd walk out empty handed. How hard was it to find an ugly ole nightstand?! Turns out it was pretty hard! 

Then I went to Home Goods with the worst attitude. I thought "I'm not going to find anything in here. Why am I here...again?!"   It also turns out that would be the day I found exactly what I was looking for. Go figure! Here's the before and after of my bedroom nightstand!

The best part about this table was that it was tagged for $49, but there was a red crayon mark on the side of the table. The lady ringing me up said she'd give me a 10% discount, so I walked out with the table for $45. Little did she know, that red crayon mark would soon be covered by a soft dove gray...ha! I'll take what I can get :)

UPDATE: Paint color is Chocolate Froth by Behr.....yum ;)

Have you refinished any furniture lately? 
Happy Thursday!
