I found this nightstand on Craigslist from a fun gentleman named Bob who I have bought a couple of other items from.
Bob stashes his furniture finds in a rental he owns, and I believe his wife is not completely aware of the extent of his used furniture collection.
When I saw the ad for this piece, I knew it had to be Bob because of how he words his ads, and he always prices his things kind of funny, like, $58, or $43. No reason, really, just sounds good to him. Here was our CL emails~
Me: Are you firm on the price?
P.S. Is this Bob? :)
Bob: I have a hard enough time hiding things from my wife and now I have to put up with you. I can't hide from anyone!! Oh, thats right, you already viewed that item. There goes all my profit.
Me: Ha ha... I thought it had to be Bob! Are you sure you're ok with that price? If so, just let me know when you'll be at the Furniture Stash Shack! :)
Bob: When I saw the "Stash Shack" I literally exploded. Yes, you can have it. I will let you know when I will be back out there. See ya!
Me: Have a great week and try to find me some more good stuff, ok? :)
Kind of funny, don't ya think?
So, anyways, I gave this piece a light sanding and a spray of Kilz. I sprayed on my own turquoise concoction, gave it a nice distressing, and glazed it with this great stuff~
I sealed it with a few coats of wipe-on poly.
The gold handles were given a makeover with a shot of this~
Alrighty then...here is the before~
...and the after~
Have a happy day...and thanks, Bob! :)
