Although I had originally planned by this time to have all my furniture filled garage emptied out and all the furniture ready for sale at the town fair. Well.....of course too much has happened and I started purging out of anger and disappointment.
When I asked Big Daddy to take these out of the garage, I just looked at them and couldn't throw them away. I was inspired to give them new life and so I put them aside.
On Labor Day while my husband was at work, I grabbed my can of Olde White (AS Chalk Paint) and gave them a rough coat of paint.
I didnt do any prep obviously but I did find that the paint might not cover all surfaces that well. I noticed as it was drying that some brownish tint was coming through the paint. Im assuming its a varnish coat underneath or something...I didn't mind it because it gave it age and crackle spots.

Here they are in my bedroom...I think they fit in nicely
I like that they look chippy and old. I dont shiny bright nightstands.
I decided I wanted to paint the hardware too, I dont know why but I love how it turned out.
Here is a wide view...I was nice a put the other one (without the handle) on my husband's side. LOL
I party with the best:
