For the past few years I have had a wood night stand that gets ruined with any little thing you put on it, especially a drink. The top is completely ruined with water marks and oil spills (scented oils for your room). I found this table at Goodwill, so I redid this one and I'm using this one while I redo the first one I had, which will become my husbands. Thankfully. I hate that we don't both have a place to keep our books, etc. So a few things I learned while redoing this table: be sure to sand it, and sand it well. Don't get lazy// sometimes tables like these could really use a coat of spray paint to prime it, which really makes your job a whole lot easier// be sure your new hardware fits the hole of the old hardware.
The before and after picture is a little unfair because the before was taken with my iphone, and the after was taken with my SLR.....yeah.
