i do not claim to be the ultimate diy-er but when i don't completely screw something up, i enjoy sharing my success. then again, i enjoy sharing my failures too.
after my grandmother passed away, rip, i decided she would want me to enjoy her night stand tables to its fullest potential and in order to do so, i took it upon myself to refinish these beauts into something i would love.
i got my wisdom tooth out earlier this week so this was the perfect project to keep me busy but not exhausted.
first, i chose the furniture and took some before photos.
second, i brought them outside and SANDED away. some people would recommend a hand electronic sander but i prefer the old fashion way of putting some elbow grease in and sanding and sweating myself.
let. me. tell. you. it was dusty! i washed these puppies down and let 'em dry out like those derby horses after a nice wash down.
i decided our bedroom needed something wiiiild and this paint color would be just perfect. i chose behr gem turquoise and knew it would be everything we needed.
WAAHLAA!! and these, my friends, are our newest additions.
i LOVE the pop of color these add to our
still too bachelor pad esque for me bedroom and i cannot wait to fancy it up a little more.
i will be out shopping for some knobs today but just couldn't wait to share.
and with the knobs, i plan to buy some new lamps, clearly.
so what do you think?! do you like the addition?
