One Nightstand {Nope, Two!}

My husband brought home this antique vanity for me earlier this spring. Seriously, how lucky am I! Some women get excited when their man brings them flowers...not me, I get all silly over a junky piece of furniture. To each their own I guess:)

This vanity is a different style then I'm use to making over, but it's good for me to work on pieces that are outside my comfort zone. {I just kept telling myself that as I stared at this piece in the garage for THE ENTIRE SUMMER!}

Finally a couple weeks ago, as we were embarking on Operation: Park in the Garage Again, I forced myself to tackle this makeover.

What's not apparent from the before picture is the abundant veneer issues and the broken mirror. After chewing on this girl for a few months, I decided to deconstruct it into two compact and functional nightstands.

After applying loads of wood filler, sanding and then more wood filller...somehow these little gems came to life. I used my favorite ASCP in Graphite and some new cream colored ceramic knobs to update the pair and make them uber cute once again.

Here's the before and after as well as a bunch of closeups for your viewing pleasure.

 As always, thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest makeover. Hope you are enjoying a beautiful Labor Day weekend!
