Like another craftster mentioned, I didn't want to buy an item that I would not use.  I found this nightstand at a thrift store for $5.  If it had been mine, I would have tossed it in the trash!  Roll Eyes  Two of the drawers were broken and three of the supports inside were loose.  Someone had carved 'IL7' on the front, and it looked like it had really been kicked around.

I didn't buy anything to transform this nightstand - I used items I already had (used my stash!).  I sanded it all down and repaired the drawers and supports (with popsicle sticks!).  The paint was left over from our living room.  I stenciled the top and drawer fronts using designs I already had, and I lined the drawers with felt.

I'll put this in the family room by my chair to hold crafting supplies.  Grin

Thank you!

"Sad" - I used that word, too, when I first saw it.

The drawers are actually quite spacious.  A sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper fits in with room to spare.

This turned out so beautifully. I had a night stand very similar to that, I finally gave up on its transformation but now I wish I had it back!

Aren't you glad someone didn't throw it away? You made a one of a kind piece of furniture.

I love the stencil on the top! Where'd you find it? Did you create that pattern yourself? Beautiful work.
