Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Have you ever gone to someones house to buy a piece of Craigslist furniture and come away with a load of things you weren't expecting? I love it when that happens! I went to buy a table with 2 chairs for $15, I ended up with the table and chairs, this french provincial chest and  a matching dresser plus a small maple hutch. Whew! The only problem is that my garage is already overflowing. Here is the before pic, I forgot until I had taken the drawers out.

My original intention was to paint it black with satin nickel hardware. Unfortunately, I did not have enough black paint on hand. My garage is overflowing (did I mention that), I really did not want to waste time going to the hardware store. On a whim I decided to use my Rustoleum Satin Nickel spray paint. I always keep this stuff on hand for painting hardware. I primed, sanded and sprayed. As it turned out I had to go to Lowes anyway because it took 3 1/2 bottles to cover thoroughly. Not exactly a cheap makeover, it's a good thing I got such a deal on the piece.

 I painted the hardware with high gloss black~
