A Little Night Table

When I found this little night table at a yard sale about 8 years ago, it was painted black and needed some help. 


Funny enough the insides of the drawers were spotless. Light coloured wood with not a mark on them. I painted it white back then, we used it in our guest room and then it ended up in our storage room. I took it out recently, gave it a few coats of Cloud White and some wax and it looked so much fresher. The brass handles are screaming 80's but I wanted to sell it quickly and inexpensively so I didn't change them.


It sold in one day on our local online classifieds. The buyers were happy with it and we now have a bit more room in our storage area. I can hardly wait for garage sales to start up around here.

We had a great and busy weekend. I celebrated my 47th birthday on Saturday, I only FEEL 37 though ;), and we had a baby shower for my neice's new baby boy today. Lots of cake and fun family time. I hope you had a great weekend.

  7. Wow... we're the same age! Happy Birthday to you! I know what you mean about feeling like 37... or even 27... at least until I did something to my shoulder painting and it still hasn't healed :( Darn it!

  8. Happy birthday!! We are the same age. How about that? I'm just a few months older than you though. Glad to hear that you don't feel your age though. Some days I do. Ha! Garage sales are so much fun to go to. They're starting to pop up over here now too.
