Sewing Cabinets Turned Night Stands

A few months ago, I posted about some sewing cabinets that I found at a thrift store for $35 for both. They needed a fresh coat of paint, but I knew they had potential. Thanks to my husband, they are finally completed and in our bedroom.
Here are some AFTER pictures:

Just to remind you what the sewing cabinets looked like before they were painted...
One of the cabinets was missing the knobs, so I found 2 at an antique store for $1 each. We used Annie Sloan chalk paint in duck egg to paint them and applied a coat of clear wax.
And this is what our old "night stands" looked like...

We were using 2 of those cheap accent tables with the screw on legs. Definitely not fancy, but they served the purpose until we found something better.
One more AFTER picture...
I think this is much better!

    1. Thank you! We still have more work to do in our bedroom, but it is looking better.

  2. I think they're much better as well. The pop of color looks fantastic in your room. What a great find!
