Monday Made It: Nightstand Redo

So I missed the first weekly Monday Made It last week, but I'm so excited to be joining this week!  One of my favorite things about the summer is the weekly MMI link up with 4th Grade Frolics!  

 I only have one project to share this week because if you remember, I am still in school and should really be grading and finishing report cards instead of blogging, but I've got priorities! I found this adorable little nightstand/end table at Goodwill a few weeks back and just had to have it... especially because it was only $25.

While it was very cute, but it didn't match our black, white, and read bedroom at all, which is where it was going to go.
It also had several layers of paint on it that needed to be stripped first. I thought I would be able to quickly repaint this nightstand, but man was I wrong!!!  What was supposed to be a quick Memorial Day Weekend project, turned into a two week project that I have just finished!

Here is the finished product in my bedroom!

I really love it.  It's cute and simple and looks great in our bedroom!

 I have several more projects in the works that I will post about soon!  Make sure you go and check out all of the other MMI's on Tara's blog!


  1. Rissa,
    That turned out so cute! I'm definitely impressed. Sorry it took so long for you to complete though. The finished product definitely looks like it was worth the wait though! I wouldn't even know where to begin to strip furniture. My grandfather used to refinish antiques. He did an amazing job. It's funny....I didn't inherit that from him. I didn't inherit the cooking from my mom and grandmother. I didn't inherit the green thumb from my father who is in agriculture. I must've fallen from the sky! Lol!
    Rockin' and Lovin' Learnin'

  2. So proud of you finishing. I started striping grandmother's fern stands and never got to second one. I just sent the two of them .home with my niece. I thought her mom could help her finish and paint whatever colors she wanted. Looks like you did a good job.

  3. Rissi, this is beautiful! You did a great job on it. You are just a busy little beaver where projects are concerned, aren't you? Congrats on the finished product!
