Such a great makeover! How often to do you see these types of pieces at a yard sale or thrift store and just walk by? Next time I might stop and think!

Great before & after! I love makeovers, and this one is particularly nice. The boring nightstands have become really glamorous!
Thanks for posting this; it's very inspiring - and it's also very important to promote stylish redesign.
Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a lovely week so far – so happy you’re excited about this makeover – isn’t it such a lovely idea to paint a pattern on them? Was completely inspired to find ways to freshen things up around the house for Spring.

MirandaJ – Lovely to hear from you, and thanks so much! Your projects are fantastic -- especially love the idea of setting the tables side-by-side as one – thanks for the inspiration!
