Election 2011?

You'd think there was an election going all with all the Campaigning going on around here!!!  My sisters campaign dresser redo really got my butt in gear with my campaign pieces. 

Here's a quick before and after to show you!  I found this campaign nightstand after a thrifty reader alerted me of its location at one of my fav's Diversity Thrift!  It was in pretty bad shape with a nasty water mark on the bottom (I'm really hoping that's what it was!) but I knew that could be easily fixed with a coat of primer (Zinsser Oil Based) and 2 coats of paint (Behr Ultra Pure White in Eggshell with Minwax water based poly applied after paint dried).  I also refreshed the hardware by applying some Brasso polish. 

Here it is in its former glory!

And here it is today!

As much as I love it and REALLY wanted to keep it, it's now living in my little space at Through the Garden Gate.  I'm trying to start off with a bang (read: make my first months rent!) so I'm hoping this little guy with sell!  Also hoping I find another one to keep for myself ;)

Linking up to these lovely ladies!
