Hey there! Don't you all love getting amazing, wonderful, slightly beaten up furniture for free? Ya me too!!! I recently did an estate liquidation job and scored some really amazing free furniture! It was all in need of some serious TLC but that's right up my alley...actually I PREFER it like that! Its no fun when the furniture is perfect! ;) Well I almost passed on this little nightstand. It was missing a drawer and although it was sturdy I just couldn't see myself being able to do much with it minus the drawer. But when it was still around on the last day of the liquidation and it was about to be hauled to the dump I thought HEY NOW...its definitely worth a shot! Well I am SO glad I took her home because she's super purty now and I don't even mind that she's missing a drawer! She started out looking like this....
Please forgive the grainy cell phone picture. My camera was missing and I was desperate to get a "before" pic quickly so I could get started on it. This pic was taken after I removed the hardwear and lightly sanded it all over. You can see that the corners are super beat up, veneer was peeling, etc. She needed a major over haul! Luckly some primer and several light coats of Rustoleum's semi gloss white later and she was looking MUCH better...
