bedside table and 100TH POST GIVEAWAY!


It's here! It's here! It's here! 


Let's have a look at the big bedside table project! Here she is, fresh off the streets of craigslist.

These lovely pulls were on the front..

with no way to get them off the back. What the french.

So I used a flat head screwdriver and a mallet to wedge the front of the drawer off. 

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

I just unscrewed the pulls and kept them in separate piles. Then I brought the little nugget out to the spray paint patch.

Rustoleum's Lagoon was the color of choice.

Do as I say: light even coats. 

Not as I do. How many times have I spray painted things?!?! A MILLION! I SHOULD KNOW BETTER BY NOW! 

Bubbles. Ugh.

I scraped the bubbles off, and continued with my light even coats. 

Here I am back in my paint clothes..

After several coats! 

This is how the whole thing should've looked..

After it dried overnight, I put the drawers back together. I was able to line up the nails with the existing holes that had been there after I pulled the front off.

See?! I just hammered it on with a mallet. It was quite easy.

TA DA!! Let's take her outside for some pics, eh? 

Do you see what I did wrong? Damn pulls. It was too late to turn them over because I didn't notice until after I had hammered the fronts back on there. 

I sprayed the back! This will be relevant later on in the bedroom makeover.

The insides are still wood. I might change that one day.

I can't wait to get it upstairs! 

She's gonna look so good! 

Onto the giveaway! I'm sure that's what you've all been waiting for!! 

I figure I'd change it up and giveaway one of these puppies:

They're 8x10", so you can frame 'em and slap 'em up in your house! If you're not an AU or UA fan (or you don't want a print), I'll send you a set of these puppies:

SO how to enter? 

Just like the "i like what i'm herring" facebook page, and comment on the 100th post status update! 

If you don't have facebook, or you'd like a second chance to win, comment directly on this bloggie post! Woop woop! 

I'll enter everyone's name into random.org to choose the winner, and I'll notify whoever it is to see what giveaway they want! I'll close the contest on Friday at midnight, so get crackin'!
