First Craigslist Purchase!

Yippee!! I just picked up my first purchase from Craigslist. I've been searching for a new bedside table but haven't found what I'm looking for - certainly not in my price range. Well, while I searching on Craigslist, I came upon a wooden cabinet that I think has real potential! I'm not exactly sure of what I want to do with it. In fact, I'm not entirely sure I still want it as a bedside table. Crazy, huh? Still a wooden cabinet for $35 - I couldn't pass it up!

It's more rustic than I had been looking for, but I know I can change it. (It's easier than trying to change a person - ha ha!) Have spray paint - will change you!

22" high x 33" long x 12" deep

The previous owner had already sanded the entire piece. She had thought about redoing it somehow, but just never did. Yeah for me - the hard part is finished already!

What should I do with it??

Yes, I hate sanding too! I am a 'stain the top and paint the bottom part' type of gal. I love both black or white furniture with pops of color inside. Have fun with what you decide.
You asked about my wall color. I just knew someone would. It's whoops paint so it has no name. Someone had this color mixed and returned it. I bought it for $5.00 and I love it. :)
