*Holly Paint*

So...while I was out picking up a free Craigslist dresser 
(more on that later when I actually dig it out of my garage!) 
I found this cute little nightstand for free on the side of the road...What a Night!!

The nightstand was in great condition and solid...I could barely lift it to throw it into the truck.

Here it is painted with a deep turquoise color that I mixed myself.  
I then distressed and stained it to bring out all of the great lines.  
The handles were painted a satin nickel color. 

I listed it on Craiglist and it sold a few hours later...always makes me happy!
