Night stand redo

I have been so busy getting the deck painted that I have fallen behind on my cardmaking, in fact I need to make a graduation card for my daughter who is graduating from college tomorrow.  So I thought I could use this time to post a picture of the night stand I bought for $5 and spray painted it with Valspar satin Leafy rise.

It took the whole can to paint it, I also added a new drawer pull to it that I found at Lowes.  The screw holes on the old one was 3", and all I could seem to find was 2 1/2 inches and I didn't want to have to drill new holes and fill in the old, but I finally came across this one, wouldn't have been my first choice but seeing as they were limited on that size I went with it.

Sorry it isn't a very good picture, but we had a hard time fitting it between the bed and the wall, and I forgot to take the after photo until after we had it in place.  This is in my craft/guest room, so I had already put a tin underneath that holds all the attachements and extra's for my sewing machine.

My Dad is here visiting, came to see my daughter graduate and is going to stay for a week.

Hope you all are enjoying the start to your weekend and that it is a good one, and that you take some time out on Monday to remember our Men and Women who have sacrificed so much for us!

Thanks so much for taking the time out to stop by,

This turned out very nice and, good heavens, you can't beat it for $5! I'm always watching HGTV and being inspired to do things like this. We're about to begin a deck, fence, and outdoor furniture painting project, but waiting for the weather to straighten out.
