Transforming a Nightstand

I purchased a nightstand from Hotel Liquidators a while ago but never had time to do anything with it. Although I should be prepping for the Shavuot lunch I am hosting, I took time to finally cross this project off my list.
Below is the before...I paid $35 for it and it's super heavy and sturdy...only not very attractive.
Here's how I transformed it...
1. After removing the hardware, the holes were patched with Spackle, followed by one coat of primer.  The bottom drawer was also removed along with any hardware so it became a cubbie instead of a drawer.
2. After two coats of paint a new hole was drilled since the new pulls only required one hole.
3. A thin bead of glue ran along the indentations on the drawer fronts.
4. Gold cording was glued into place.
Such an improvement! The new pulls are from Knobs4Less and the paint is Benjamin Moore's Chelsea Gray in the Advance line of paint.

Okay, enough decorating...time to hit the kitchen!
