When Ashley of The Handmade Home got the two nightstands she’d ordered from an online retailer, they had been heavily damaged in shipping. Luckily, the online retailer came through in a big way and refunded the purchase. Ashley was left with two damaged, but free pieces of furniture!
The damaged dressers might have been sent to the curb by more easily discouraged persons, but Ashley and her husband made repairs to the nightstands, instead. This included replacing the beyond-repair-tops with stained wood. They repainted the rest of the pieces to cover up the dings and scratches. The finishing touch was the addition of some gorgeous faux-agate knobs that Ashley made from Sculpey clay (believe it or not–wow!). Simple changes that made these once ruined nights something special.
