Grandpa's Ugly Old End Table

I took an old wonky end table that my grandfather made in high school from scrap lumber.  This was nothing special, my grandma was going to throw it out.  So it went to my house...as usual!  I took the ugly wooden handle off and wood filled the drawer to cover all the screws and holes.  I then sanded it down and painted it an Apple Green.  I then drilled a single hole for a drawer pull and applied some stenciling (It's my new love).  After sanding that a bit I was good to go.  A clearance drawer pull from Hobby Lobby and it was done!

Thank gawd you saved it and did a beautiful job refinishing it too.
