....A month later, it was still sitting in my garage. "Um, honey, about that night stand you bought and said you'd redo?" says Mr. Lewisville
"Right, this week" says I. So here it is, in all it's beautiful glory, and I must say, I'm very happy with the results.
Good bye '70s. Hello beautiful.
|Tools to lose that '70's drawer front.|
I took a hammer and a flat head screw driver and popped off the front of the drawers. I was surprised they were just plastic front plates. There was also that ornate detail all around the edges of the nightstand, top and bottom. It all had to go.

|Doesn't it look pretty already!|
|Don't you just love the shine? Nod yes.|
So now it's decision time concerning hardware. I love this part. Knobs and pulls make such a big difference in furniture appearance. There are so many possibilities out there, but I decided to go with a brushed nickel knob. Ironically, one knob cost me more than the entire nightstand. Go figure!
