I have this little space behind the couches in the family room and didn’t know what to do with it. One day i was in my grandmas garage and found this old nightstand – it had junk on it piled to the ceiling (you think i am kidding!) and it was filled with crap. So i snatched it up…it will be perfect with a little love :)
I found out that this was actually my grandpas parents nightstand – so that makes it really old, it still had the original paint – it had never been touched. But, the yellow just wasnt working for me. So white she went…
Do you see that empty frame above? It did have a mirror but right after i finished it – seriously like a week later – the kids broke it!! It had been empty for about 6 months but then i got this mirror the other day for $5 at the DI – sweet!
The mirror frame itself is oak, but the swirly stuff inside it actually plastic. I just painted it white and sanded the edges and wa-la, gorgeous! What about the model, is she cute or what?!
I still need to get some knobs and then it will be done (maybe i should put the original’s back on, hmmm?). Then i need to put something above the mirror – the ceilings are really tall, but i am waiting until i hang some drapes -another project that is 98% done :)
And, a little sneak peak about what i am working on next…
