night stand

a year ago, i bought a 'dingy with beautiful possibilities' night stand at the GW.
where else can you find bargains like this for four dollars and ninetyfive cents minus a percentage off?
anyone else love the GW?!
 the door refused to close which Hubs fixed,

she was banged up but she sure had lovely bones with equally lovely hardware.
she is gorgeous in her new color!
- Gentle Rain by Behr at Home Depot - 
and look at this hardware,  
sprayed with this...
amazing difference!

LOVE!
i finished the top with sheet music.
fitting words! :) 
- before -

***************************

to the no-reply comment question on how the CHIFFONIER was finished.
it was sanded, cleaned, primed (kilz is a GOOD primer!) and painted with Gentle Rain by Behr.
after it was dry, an electric sander and hand sanding was used to rough it up and finished with 
Minwax Paste Finishing Wax. 

...blessedness!
