Nightstand: Before & After

My parents bought a bedroom set when I was pretty young. Now, they kept that bedroom set all together until just a few years before I got married (decades later). When they realized it was ugly were ready for a change, I inherited one of the nightstands. (I don't know why I was only given one but that's probably all I could hand with my teeny little apartment when I first got married.)

Here she is... oh how shiny!

I finally got around to doing something about it! What a difference some white paint and new handles can make!

Now it's in my guest room and my sisters didn't even recognize it! I don't know, I'm kinda thinking about painting a cool pattern on it one day... maybe. I do know this little one needed a face-lift bad!

  13. @Ten Cow Thanks! We sanded it down with sandpaper then primed and painted with left over paint. I'm pretty sure it was latex since that's what we used on most of the house.
