Fun Project

I got a smokin' deal on these two end tables.....or are they night stands. I'm not sure what makes it a night stand or an end table so to me they could be both. (If you know the answer, I would LOVE to know). :) They were $5.99 each. YAY! I did have to take off the existing tops and replace them cause they were covered in yucky veneer and I just didn't want to deal with getting it all off so I didn't. To much racket for me. I got out my tools so I could distress them. A hammer, fork and chisel did the job. My husband even helped me....what man doesn't like to him things with a hammer, right? I then took some glaze and mixed in a little brown paint and gave them a good rub down. I replaced the wood knobs with these rustic copper bronze ones and tada! I love how all the nicks and crannies catch the brown glaze. Let me know what you think. :)

That's it, I'm moving to whatever city you live in so I can find these furniture pieces you keep finding! Nice redo!

P.S. Please tell me that you are linking up your projects somewhere? These are too great to keep to yourself!

P.P.S. This is like my 80th comment on your blog... I promise I'm not a stalker, I just love these pieces!
