ART DECO VANITY TURNED NIGHTSTANDS - small space bedside cabinets

If you consider cutting up an old vanity for a repurposing project just be cautions and think through the process. In the end you have to fix whatever damage is caused to the sides so going slow in the beginning will help in the end.

This blond bombshell was not getting any second looks at the thrift store.


I think the most important thing to look for when taking
 furniture apart is to find all the screws used. Screws can
 easily be removed with a driver but if you miss them they will
 cause serious damage when pulling things apart. Nails are
 much more forgiving. Here is some of the damaged areas on
the sides being filled and painted.


The little Queen Anne legs added to the bottom were a yard
 sale find. The scrolled parts used on the bottom front are cut
 plastic pieces from a thrift store 70's spoon rack.
They are pre-drilled and secured with small finishing nails.

The amazing hardware are genuine antique English pulls.
I adore them so much that the photo above is currently my 
cell phone's background picture.

These nightstands are drop dead gorgeous and perfect for a small space.
