End Table Makeover


Well before we get to the main point of this story, let’s start with the sad beginning.  I promise it has a happy ending.
This was the end table on my husband’s side of our bed.  Pretty sad end table.  I believe we got this sucker at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago.  (Please disregard those legs and that dirty mirror caused by little fingers)

Now let’s just try to forget this picture ever existed.  Believe it or not, I was browsing Craigslist one day. Me on Craigslist, who would have thought? Anyway, when I came across this lovely end table.

I’m going to skip the boring parts on this one.  So after some primer, paint and new hardware. 
We now have this.
