Black Nightstands Makeover

So, I don’t have a proper before picture.
My mom bought these for me at a garage sale ($20 for the pair). She removed the hardware and sanded them before she brought them to me (Thanks Mom).

I honestly don’t know what the old pulls looked like. My mom said they were ugly and dated, so she threw them away. I was planning to replace the pulls with knobs anyway, so it’s all good.
My mom painted the first coat on both of the nightstands while she was visiting a few weeks ago. It took a couple more weeks of procrastinating for me to finish them up, but finally I painted a second coat and rubbed on some poly.
What once was pink now is black!

My boyfriend loves them too…probably because they aren’t white! 


Nightstands – Mom $0
Paint  – Mom $0
Poly – On Hand
Knobs – Hobby Lobby $3.99 $2.00 each

Total $4.00

Mom, thanks for hooking me up with these nightstands!
