Then I went on the hunt for things.
You know .... things.
The last thing acquired was a little stand from a local thrift store. I paid $20 for a lot of items - lot, as in group. Can you find it? Yeah, now you know why I had to give it a face lift.
So, not knowing much about this stuff, I asked. The hubs said, "eh, just sand it, prime it well, and use a quality paint and you'll be fine."
Sa-weet! I'm in like Flint!
So I did just that. I sanded. I applied two coats of primer. I sprayed on three light even coats of red paint.
And I got this ......

C'est la vie! Live and learn.
I added that adorable drawer pull and some little plastic feet on the bottom to save the hardwood floors.
As for the room, well, it's a work in progress. I kind of went about in my own weird way. And I'm glad I did.
At first I wanted to paint the walls yellow. There's nothing wrong with yellow, mind you. But, I'm adapting a "live with it and see" attitude before I start anything major. I hate painting, so that's a major for me. I am going to paint the bedroom walls, but they're remaining blue.
