When I found these nightstands they were the most hideous "old food" brown you could imagine...in a glossy finish...eww. But I saw their potential and the clean lines and decided to buy them at the San Antonio Goodwill for 9.99/set. I painted them this blue gray and they've stayed that way for the past year. (Forgive me, I have no idea the color. I just chose one and painted as quickly as possible!)
Now that I've had them that way for close to a year, I had debated about sinking some money into the ones I really wanted from World Market. But they are close to $200 a piece! So this weekend, I'm going to squeeze in one more project before classes start on the 27th. I'll post photos of the process and hopefully it all turns out as expected and I'll have bedside tables reminiscent of those from World Market!
