Nightstand Makeover

I got this great little table at a garage sale for $2. 
2 is my lucky number. 
If any piece of furniture is marked $2
I am going to buy it!!! Guaranteed. 
Its almost becoming a joke. 
We are starting to get some strange looks at sales
when we burst into laughter when something is marked $2.
Em found this table.  Sooo...if I can't remember the price
I pretty much blog that it was $2.

It was solid wood, old, and DUSTY!!
I painted it grey.  I actually bought the
Benjamin Moore Paint at a garage sale for 50 cents.

I sketched on a flower and used a font from word. 
I used the old rub and trace.

I just spray painted the handle white.


  1. That is one of the most incredible transformations I have ever seen! Extremely clever and life changing for that little table. I am in awe of your talents! Deb

  2. This is really cute! I couldn't have imagined that little nightstand could look so good!

  3. That table is so cute! Its amazing how far you can go with just $2.....

  5. WOW!!! You totally gave it a new life! Way cool transformation!

  6. I love that you sketched on a flower and used a font from word." I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one still doing that! (Although I will admit to being a font junkie, lol.) I love what you did!
