A story of TWO Night Stands

The story of these

 two night stands

 is quite weird.

Initially, the one on the right was purchased at a garage sale. I can't keep these in my mall booth, they sell fast, but I was going to paint this one for my daughter's bedroom in her new house. This is what it looked like when I got it...
Before I even got a chance to paint it, I happened upon a thrift store giving away everything inside because they had to move out. What was holding the door open? You got it, a night stand...
This one, though it looks bad, was in great condition as far as sturdiness goes and the skirting at the bottom just spoke to me. Why? Because I remembered my daughter's dresser has the same look at the bottom leg area! So THIS one would be painted for my daughter instead.

Daughter's dresser

She wanted me to paint it Onyx which is a color that I had painted two night stands for a client last year and luckily, I had some paint left over. (NOTE: many people have asked what paint was used, it is called Deep Onyx by Sherwin Williams, Color to Go) So instead of painting just one night stand, I painted both today and I will be able to sell one in my booth. Here are more details...

Those favorite skirted legs!

I purchased new hardware for my daughters and spray painted it a gray hammered metal

I used the same hardware for the one for sale, but spray painted it to better go with its new color!
