old filing cabinent turned nightstand!

A while back I was roaming my local Goodwill in hopes of finding something really great!
 Thankfully, it turned out to be one of those trips that makes me remember exactly how much I love thrifting and what a sense of accomplishment it gives me!

Remember this!?

I fell in love as soon as I saw it (only at $20 bucks how could I resist!) I knew exactly where I wanted it to go! I would use it as a nightstand for my husband's side! It was masculine, the gold trim was gorgeous and with some paint I knew it would be beautiful!

It took me a while to get to it, but now it's all complete and looks exactly how I imagined!

 It took quite a few coats of paint. I started with a brush, and finished with a small trim roller to smooth all the lines


The master bedroom is coming along!
I spray painted our curtain robs white to go with our new curtains!
I purchased the fabric from

Here's the progress!



 I recently purchased a cabinet to use for my nightstand at a yard sale, can't wait to start on it!

Happy Thursday!
