The ol' switcharoo

It's like buying a gift for someone else, and ending up keeping it for yourself.  That's how I see it.  They never know.

There are just some pieces that are destined to stay in my home.

 Take this dresser for example, a non descript, free dresser that I dressed up and tried to sell at the Barn sale.
But alas, she came home with me.  And I wasn't too upset about it.

I saw it as my bedside table immediately.

My old side table

My "new" one.

Check out what I was using when we first moved in.

Nothing at all wrong with having a dinky side table, if you like that sort of thing.  I just need  plenty of room for all my bedside needs.

For those of you who paint and sell furniture, you are nodding your head and know exactly what if feels like.

Tell me your story.


  1. oh it's perfect there, the right height exactly, and it gives you more storage! even better!

  2. oh it's cute!! I've been guilty of keeping a piece or 2 (or 3) for myself sometimes! I just fel in love with them while I was working on it :)

  3. LOL! is so pretty. And there is nothing better than all that storage!

    And this is just for you.....:)

    Have a great day rock star!

  4. Good trade! The best thing about refinishing furniture is that you can trade things out any time for a fresh new look to your decor. Right now I'm looking at a dining set in my garage and seriously considering painting it for myself. So hard because I love my current dining room table too. I can't have both! Patti

  5. Jealous! i wish I had a larger bedside table!!!
