A Lovely Little Night Stand...

  This past weekend I painted a cute little nightstand that had been sitting around my house for a while waiting to have a makeover. This particular nightstand is in one of our guest bedrooms & was in desperate need of a facelift & some new cute hardware...


Before... there was a lot wear & tear...


After... Now we have pretty wear & tear. It's always prettier when it's on purpose. 


Look at those cute feet. 


I added these cute drawer pulls. 


I painted the night stand a robins egg blue & after distressing it, I loved the finished product. 


Sorry for the picture overload.... Just one more...



I hope you all are having a fantastic Easter... My husband is still gone for another two weeks.. & I'm a thousand miles away from my family, but remembering how amazing our God is & what this day is really about is making it a fantastic day for me as well! This weekend was full of time with some good friends. Also mowing the lawn & tons of yard work ( I know! I'm so proud & so is my hubby!) Also the "spring cleaning" will continue until my hubby comes home.. I want everything to be perfect for his homecoming. I have another night stand like this & I'm planning on re-doing it soon. If you are interested in buying one e-mail me at Lizmariegalvan@gmail.com or go to Liz Marie Blog Facebook Page & let me know. We can discuss color/price & all other details. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

  91. Hi Liz- I have noticed now that on my CraftOManiac Monday link party you come by my blog and link up, but you aren't linking back and that is part of my rules. Its courtesy to do so and polite. I have searched your blog looking for anything that would show you are linking to CraftOManiac, but I come up with nothing. I would love for you to join in my link party but I have had to delete your entries each week because I am not linked at all. I hope this can be fixed and would be glad to have you link each week. Thanks so much, Jen
