My oldest son has been asking me for a couple months for a bedside table. There were a couple that I really wanted from Pottery Barn, but they were somewhere around $500 each. Then I thought I would just make him one.
However, a couple weeks ago my husband was helping someone move and they had a small TV stand that they didn't have room for anymore so he brought it home. Problem solved! Of course I had to change it a little, but that is the fun part.
This is what it looked like this morning:
I removed the doors, sanded and painted it a dark navy, added a shelf and put some beadboard on the back of it.
I might still change the handle. It just depends on how it looks in the room. First we have to rearrange the room a little, which may take awhile since he is 13.
I will add in a picture once the room is done. The amount I actually spent on it was only $9 for the paint (which I still have tons left of), everything else I already had leftover from other projects.
