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!
