Revamping a piece that had seen better days...

I have a ridiculously small space between my bed and an my old fashion hot water radiator in my bedroom. Because of that it is not an easy task to fing a night stand that fits properly in this tiny weeny space. I had been in the look out for a piece that would fit for  a while, when back in july I found this, while doing one of my favourite things...thrifting!

My dear sister in law gave me that "look"when she saw it ." what are you going to do with THIS??! " 
I had my plans....
It was small and narrow enough and had a simplicity that I love, and plus, it was solid wood and it was cheap!!! points points many points in my chart!
Happy to say that after:
1. Sanding
2.Wood Filling
3. Priming - Kilzn oil primer
4. Painting- Martha Stewart Shark Grey
5. Glazing - Walnut Stain 
6. New hardware 
7. Cute basket

... I have a night stand!

I chose grey because I am so much into this colour, it matches my pillows and compliments my lampshade..beautifully,  I think!
