Nightstand Makeover

I picked up this cute little guy at Goodwill for $5.99. It was not half off day so I almost passed it up but then decided even for $6 it could still be a good project.

I have a feeling this was high school woodworking project or something. It's definitely homemade. But it's solid wood and came with a key for the little lock on the drawer.

At first I was going to go with a bright colour for the paint but in the end I just went with boring old off white. I have painted so many things with the same gallon of off white paint it's ridiculous!

I applied this striped paper to the drawer front which I have had in my scrapbook paper stash for over 5 years. Sometimes it pays to hold onto things! It's the exact same colour as my paint, it looks perfect together!

It came with a giant ugly handle in the middle so I took that off and used some wooden knobs that came off another dresser. I used the wooden knobs because it was hard to match the finish of the lock. It's a very light brass colour but looks silver sometimes.

I love these little projects and everything I used I already had on hand.

Party like it's 1999!
