Thrifted!

See this beauty?
It wasn’t so beautiful before!
Emily and I saw this at a store that was going out of business-
and she was selling it for $25..
Emily talked her down for me, and I got it for $20. 
It’s perfect for my living room.
(I’m so proud of myself, because I never thrift shop. So this is a first for us!)
I’m going to be honest and tell you that my husband did this entire thing.
His only downfall was not informing me that he was starting–
so my before picture is missing the drawer.
But here is the before:
He sanded it down a bit so the paint would stick..
(he had lots of help, too)
Adding the first coat of spray paint..

 After the painting was done,
he bought some new hardware ($4)- 
and we were in business!
(the old one was hideous, believe me)
 I think it turned out awesome.
$25.  Love it.

    Wow- it turned out perfect! Your husband is a professional spray painter I see! 😉 My husband would have likely ended up doing this project himself around our house too!

    So cute I love it. I have a couple of things waiting to be re-finshed right now. I just have to decide on a color?!

    I was also wondering about your background in this picture? It looks like the table is on cement but that there is bead board in the background?
