before and after

before & after: wen’s nightstand

by Grace Bonney

wen from the lazy peacock sent in this crafty before & after. after picking up this nightstand at a local thrift store for $4, wen thought that the little piece has potential. deciding that the nightstand needed some rounded feet, wen attached a cute pair with liquid nails, found a plain 10″ ceiling medallion at a local hardware store for $5 and new hardware at home depot. after a little sanding, filling and painting wen added the new medallion and hardware and finished everything off with 2 coats of white gloss spray paint. total cost of the finished project? $18.94. well done, wen!
