I know what your thinking. Why on earth would I ever purchase these hideous looking things? I'll tell you why, because I am in desperate need of bedside tables. I have been without them for quite some time now, and I can no longer put them off. Moreover, these guys were a fraction of the price of some bedside tables I've seen thus far.
When I set out on my hunt for this particular item(s), I made myself a criteria's list which included; an identical pair(although I'm not a stickler on matching pieces-just felt they had to be for this), I preferred a square shape as opposed to a round one, I wanted legs, and finally, a drawer. Bingo! They had it all, so I loaded them into the car, brought them home and worked my magic.
There they are, all cleaned up, spray painted, and jeweled up.
I used a few, old, shower curtain hooks for the drawer pulls. I had to pull out the "hooks" with pliers for a smooth surface on the back, once the metal was off, I applied a little E600 glue and presto, not your ordinary knobs but these work very well. I also borrowed glass from the entertainment center in the living room and used them as glass tops.
I love the way they turned out, they make perfect bedside table's and I finally have a place for my gorgeous crystal lamps.
