Summer is my busiest time. I’m a complete sloth in the winter, and then warm weather comes around and suddenly I’m split into 18 different directions. That may also be because I have ADD. Jury’s still out on that one.

Anywho. So instead of taking photos of myself wearing clothes from the 70s, I’ve been doing small projects around the house non-stop.

My husband and I wanted a small nightstand or end table for our bedroom, so instead of buying a new one I dug out this old beast.

It sat in my parents’ bedroom for years and years when I was growing up. While a lot of people would send this puppy to Goodwill post-haste, I thought I could turn it into something new. A few coats of paint later…

Me likey! I haven’t actually put it into the bedroom yet, hence the deck photos. This project only took 2 days. I removed the hardware, slapped on a few coats of oil-based primer the first day, and a few coats of RustOleum’s American Accents paint in Summer Squash on the second day. I replaced the handles with a few plain white knobs I had lying around, and she was all done.

On to the next project!
