MY REPURPOSED NIGHT STAND

Here is the night stand that came with the bed that I found on Craigslist
Here is the night stand all finished and turned into a chest. I had to remove the drawers and add a wood panel to the front. I also had to remove the top panel, add hinges, paint and slightly distress. The inside is lined with fabric.
I wanted to paint something on the top or the front but my daughter thought I should leave it alone. I will live with it like this for a while and if the urge to paint something on it is still itching at me I'll probably give in to it.
It was a fun and simple project...now I must finish painting that bed!

What an awesome finish I wish I could transform some thing like that. I have a hard time seeing beyond what is there. I love it

Woozers......what a great job you did! Love how you lined it with the fabric. I agree with you though....I think something stenciled on it would look awesome...Can't wait to see the whole set done and put together, I just know it's going to be primtastic!

Thank you all for your nice comments!

So far I am still living with it without painting anything on it.
If I should ever paint something, I'll be sure to post a picture.

Primtastic transformation! I love finding something with great potential and then transforming it into something new. I think I would make a primitive bench out of the top piece. How great would it be in a childs room.
I really enjoyed my visit to your blog!
Blessings,
Julie
