About a month ago I was at an estate sale. It was a really good one except the good stuff was already sold. I'd walk by a dresser that I really wanted only to see the "sold", sign on it. You get your hopes up and then they're smashed. There were two stories to the house so I had fun looking around, but, I went to get something! Do you ever feel that way, like you're really missing out if you don't get something? Well I did see something that I liked the legs on it, in fact thats all I really liked. So I bought it, yeahhhh I got something. Then I got in the car and looked at it again and asked myself, "what are you going to do with that"? You'll see what I mean.
That door laying in it, well it belongs to some other piece of furniture, not this one. I don't really even think the legs are that great.... okay I got caught up in the moment. Since that door doesn't go with it I guess I will have to fill the two groove's on the bottom with wood glue, where a door should go to slide back and forth.
As you can see I decided to paint it yellow. I have always loved the color yellow but have never had the opportunity to use that color on furniture for my house, it wouldn't fit in too good. But I threw caution to the wind and decided to go for it. I started to really like my little night stand/old fashioned record holder/box with legs. What ever you call it, I like it, and I found a use for it
In my craft room I had these things and more (I didn't want to clutter it up for the picture) just sitting on the floor. So I decided that that room needed this bright, happy, stand. It did turn out good and goes well with the colors that are already in that room as you can see. I don't feel the five dollars spent on it was wasted at all.
I painted it inside and out with Valspar satin latex in the sample size at Lowe's, my favorite store ever. Good thing I got the sample size because I got two other one's before I got the one I used. I will make good use of the other samples eventually. I was going to glaze it but decided to leave it fresh and bright. It turned out to be a fun little project.
