Ugly End Tables become...Less ugly night stands

When we moved into out new house, I was disappointed to find that our bedroom was not wide enough to accommodate me Queen Anne end tables that I'd been using as night stands.  So, I went in search of a couple narrow tables with little drawers.  I found these for $30.

They are hideous, but made from solid wood and are good, solid pieces of furniture.

Perhaps in the future, I will try to bang these into shape and sand down past all the damage in the wood, but until then, I slapped a coat of paint on these babies and replaced the hardware.

Note: Drop Leaf Tables are a real pain to paint. I'd have been better off salvaging the tops and leaving the raw wood.
