Side Table Transformation

I was recently taking a stroll through my local thrift shop when I stumbled across these two diamonds in the rough. It was love at first sight!
My sister was visiting so she helped me give these guys a couple coats of a really light grey paint.

I chose to only slightly distress these little tables, exposing some of the dark wood beneath.



I have to give credit to my sister for coming up with the idea to put them at the end of my bed.



I love this old alarm clock. My boyfriend found it at a thrift shop and brought it home for me!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Loving it all! I can't wait to see what you do with your chair! The hardest part for me is deciding what fabric to use! So maybe I will wait to see what you do, and then. . . I will decide!

Thank you to everyone for your comments and compliments! It is very encouraging :)My bedroom is really odd shaped, it is quite long and narrow so I am so happy that my sister came up with the idea to put my tables at the end of my bed.
