Give My Night Stand a Make Over...
|$5 find at 2nd hand thrift store...|
Well I don't know who Red Rover is, but he didn't make over my night stand. I did. :)
I have been without a night stand since we moved into this house a few months ago. Yes, I said a few months. I have been waiting and watching for a nice, used, cheap night stand and I finally found it! Woot Woot!!
|primer, 2 coats of paint...|
I found this nice little stand at a thrift shop. It's real wood. It's not fake wood. I won't bother if it's fake wood. It didn't have a price tag on it so I was really expecting the worst, but took it up to the lady at the front, asked her how much and was
pleasantly surprised ecstatic when she told me $5.00! Should I let something like a five dollar find make me that happy? Is that normal?
So whilst the children were busy cleaning their rooms, I sneaked into the garage to paint this little number so I could get my room in order.
My nine year old daughter came into the garage while I was sanding the corners off and asked me why I like to sand all the corners off of what I paint. I said, "because it gives it definition." "Now get back to cleaning your room."
Can you believe someone would live like this for three months? Utterly shocking! I mean really! (I know that's what you're thinking...)
|don't judge me.|
|why is this pic blurry?|
So even though it's blurry, you "get the picture". My little night stand has saved the day. I feel like a human again, not like a piggy. Now I need to go check on my little piggies and see if their pens are clean. I mean really! Who lives like that?! Where do they get it?! ;)
