I love yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores. The feeling of finding old, dated or broken pieces with transformation potential gives me an unparalleled adrenalin rush. Not to mention a cost-effective bargain and the opportunity to be crafty, thrifty and creative. Need I say more? NOPE!
I found this old ugly and dated night stand at a nonprofit thrift store for $10.00 and immediately I saw the potential. It came at the nick of time, since I needed one for a room that I was remodeling. So I purchased it and took it home. I knew exactly what I wanted, so I “commissioned” my husband to execute my vision. When you see the final piece, you will know why he didn’t disappoint me.
Therefore, I encourage you to make it your business to transform, recycle, repurpose and/or salvage pieces that otherwise will end up in our landfills and have fun while doing it. It is such a good feeling.

Total cost of this project: ($10. nightstand, and $8.75 materials) = $18.75
