For the boudoir - bed side tables

I'm getting hooked on eBay Australia and I'm finding some good things. I've been outbid a couple of times for things that I thought I couldn't live without, but I did end up winning some Australia made bedside tables for AUD $15! I'm going to sand them down and repaint them white (Princess Bling is the exact colour). We went to a local gift shop/cafe the other day and got some torquoise coloured knobs for $3.75 each.

Here are the before shots

you can see that they need a little tlc

the after shots...

extra space for friends underneath

new hardware found at a local gift shop and was 50% off at 3.75 each!

some of my favorite things sit on top (the little owl is from Russia, and wallet is handmade with a silk-screened bicycle, lovely). All that's missing up there is a copy of Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (what I'm currently reading).

another thing that is missing is me in the same room enjoying them and visiting. your artsy craftsy projects are amazing! I love the knobs!
