From Nightstand to Washstand

In this post, I just wanted to share the process of how our hand-me-down nightstands miraculously turned into super chic washstands flanking our new sink.  (It wasn't really a miracle, just handiwork by my awesome husband, Daniel - Love you, Daniel, you're awesome!)

My brother and sister-in-law gave me these nightstands after they got new furniture in their bedroom.  I had been using them in the kitchen, one stacked on top of the other, as a microwave cabinet/pantry.  When I came up with the idea of redoing the bathroom, these seemed like the perfect cabinet choice because they had these beautiful marble tops.  I love white marble in a bathroom.  Anyway, they were perfect except for one hitch - they were way too short.  They came to about mid-thigh.

Here's a shot of them before:


We decided to take off the existing legs and add longer legs with a shelf for a basket on the bottom.  Then, I would paint everything white and change out the knobs.  Using his handy, dandy pocket-hole-jig, (which he made me take a photo of because he said it is invaluable if you are going to be doing any kind of cabinetry work), wood glue and clamps, Daniel added the legs and the shelf.  Doesn't he make an excellent product model??





 Seriously, just look at his modeling skills!!


And here it is, after the legs and shelf were added.  It didn't matter that the wood was different, since we were painting them anyway, so we went with poplar from Home Depot since you can buy by the board foot.



Stay tuned for the final bathroom reveal in which you will see the painted, updated, fancy-knob version!  See how I keep you guessing?  This is like a to-be-continued post in which you HAVE to come back to find out how it ends!
