A Lovely Little Night Stand…

  This past weekend I painted a cute little nightstand that had been sitting around my house for a while waiting to have a makeover. This particular nightstand is in one of our guest bedrooms & was in desperate need of a facelift & some new cute hardware…

Before… there was a lot wear & tear…
After… Now we have pretty wear & tear. It’s always prettier when it’s on purpose. 
Look at those cute feet. 
I added these cute drawer pulls. 
I painted the night stand a robins egg blue & after distressing it, I loved the finished product. 
Sorry for the picture overload…. Just one more…
I hope you all are having a fantastic Easter… My husband is still gone for another two weeks.. & I’m a thousand miles away from my family, but remembering how amazing our God is & what this day is really about is making it a fantastic day for me as well! This weekend was full of time with some good friends. Also mowing the lawn & tons of yard work ( I know! I’m so proud & so is my hubby!) Also the “spring cleaning” will continue until my hubby comes home.. I want everything to be perfect for his homecoming. I have another night stand like this & I’m planning on re-doing it soon. If you are interested in buying one e-mail me at Lizmariegalvan@gmail.com or go to Liz Marie Blog Facebook Page & let me know. We can discuss color/price & all other details. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

  10. I have a desk I want to redo. I have never redone any furniture before except strip my bar stool which I still have yet to finish. I really would like to redo my desk but sanding and stripping is such hard work any suggestions?
