I found this gem for $40.00 on Craigslist. It was in great shape, minimal damage that could not be fixed. After a major cleaning and heavy sanding on the top (it was laminate) I got to painting.

This was inspired by my post here. I used Killz primer, Rustoleum Satin Black and Rustoleum Bauhaus Gold.



One coat of paint

Lined drawers (I hate contact paper :/)


With the headboard

Instructions on how I made the headboard are here.

Thanks to Remodelholic for the feature!

My trip to Green Bay was a delight when I found this fabric. I bought as much as I could and may need to order much more as I have so many ideas to work with.

Outside and inside pieces (2 of each)


Inside of the finished bag - the sides should have been sewn but I didnt realize that till I finished...no shocker

I will be back with some coin purses and make-up bags
