I love checking out Kimba's blog for great before and after shots at her "Do it Yourself" Parties.
I'm not sure if this counts as "Do It Yourself" because Tom actually painted these for me, but I'll share anyway.
I found these smelly, broken, little guys on a trash heap in the rain. They were once on either side of a mirrored vanity, but the mirror was long gone. The veneer was chipping off and the knobs had to go.
I thought of spray painting them white, but with Tom's recent comment that I was going a little overboard with all the white in the house, Tom sanded them lightly, painted them black with an oil based paint we already had, and we switched out the knobs with the old wooden knobs from my last dumpster dive .
They are now cute bedside tables in our guest room. Total Cost: $0
