My *New/Old* Bedside Tables.. From White to Black..

I have been looking for bedside tables that will fit several bills at once for months..

1. I must love them..
2. They must have great details..
3. They must be matching..
4. The must be able to FIT beside my bed..

The last one is a toughie.. In my room, there's really only one good wall suitable for a nice headboard and finding thin enough tables to fit, without sacrificing the second table, was proving difficult.. I had been looking since December..

I had this image in my mind of what I wanted and when I dig my heels in, I usually don't let go til I get what I want.. I had looked at everything thrift and antique store around, with no luck, until two weeks ago..

I was cruising at the Antique Mall in Adairsville and spotted two matching end tables.. Nice details? Check... Right color? Nope.. but that's an easy fix.. Would they fit? Yes they would! AND the handles even had flourished versions of fleur de lis on them!! The price tag? $100 for the pair.. I walked away...

During that entire week though I couldnt stop thinking about those tables.. I fantasized about how they would looking.. I longed, I pined... I got a day of overtime at work.. I decided to go get them..

When I got there I was terrified that they would be gone.. So as I walked in I was on edge.. But guess what? They were there!!!!! and guess what else?? The seller had dropped the price to $80 for the pair!!! Joy, rapture, and happy dancing ensued.. Those babies were MINE MINE MINE!!!

I paid for them, loaded them up, and headed to Home Depot for my paint.. I bought 2 cans of Krylon Fusion Satin Black and a Gloss Enamel Sealant..

The next day I painted them... I got almost done and had to go for more paint but it was worth it!! Here's the pics!!! What do you think? I love them and they fit great!!!! Ill post pics of my entire bedroom once it's all settled like I want it.
