I’ve had an eye out for a nightstand for our guest room for a while, but everything I was finding in my price range was veneered and kind of cheap. Soooo…a few nights ago I stopped off at a local Goodwill and found a nightstand that I saw a lot of potential in. I liked the hardware, I liked the detail on the legs, and it was solid wood, so I knew I could paint it easily. The price tag was a mere $12.99….great deal, right? Then I got to the register….and it rang up for $6.50. That’s right, I got a nightstand for $6.50. Who knew thrift shops have sales? This was my first, and definitely not my last Goodwill purchase.
Here’s the before:
First I gave it a quick sand just to give the primer something to stick to. Since I was painting and not staining it I didn’t get crazy with the sanding.
that I got off of Craigslist. Stay tuned for the potential train wreck.
