Trash to Treasure X TWO...yet again!

We were in need of two bedside tables in our Master Suite. The two VERY short tables we were using just weren't cutting it, but I really didn't feel like shelling out any money to go buy something new. So I decided to go shopping here at my own home.....I do this!

These two pieces are what I came up with:
 !0 purchase from a late fall barn sale.I was going to use it on the covered porch, but now I have found a new use for it! A missing drawer on top was fine with me, I hope to find a cute wire basket to put into that spot. Below that is an actual drawer..although I need to score a cute glass knob for it.
 This second piece is something I got when my grandpa recently passed away. It used to sit beside their bed when my grandma was still living and he continue to use it as a bedside table as well. It is an old piece, but not in super great shape. I didn't feel guilty giving it a "make-over" and making it my own.

Here is how they look after sanding, priming, painting, more sanding, and some poly to protect them:
I'm loving how they turned out and looking forward to using them for many years!
Total Makeover for TWO bedside tables: $10...all the materials I needed I had on hand

Super cute Danielle! I meant to check those out the other night when we were there and totally forgot. Also, have you ever shopped the knob and pull aisle at Hobby Lobby? They have such a great selection of cute pulls and they always have 40% off coupons.
