I was the lucky recipient of this old night stand from sister number 3. It definetly needed some love but was a very solid piece. Here she is before.
I needed a side table in my home office to hold my shredder, extra paper for my printer and my extra forms and junk that I don't like cluttering up my desk. I painted the entire table black and used the original hardware. I added a protective placemat to the top and the inside shelf just so my office supplies and shredder wouldn't scratch the newly painted table. I bought the placemats at the dollar tree and trimmed them to fit.
Here the finished product. It works perfect in my home office.
Welcome to my little corner of blogland coming to you from Western Pennsylvania also known as Steeler Country. My name is Geri, I am the youngest of 6 and I refer to myself as Sister Number 5. I love being a wife, mother and grandmother to one beautiful little girl. My true passion in life is creating new ways to use old things. I will repurpose everything and anything I can find. I love yard sales, thrift stores, consignment stores and boating. Relax, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading my blog. Hopefully I can inspire you to remake something in your house. Thanks for stopping by.
