We had an outdoor (and indoor) Spring Market Sale at one of my booth locations (Shreveport, LA) and on Friday I saw a neat nightstand for sale and had to have it.  I wanted to take advantage of the extra customer traffic so I overhauled it overnight.  I used some chalk paint and dark wax with some distressing.  The yardsticks are all vintage and cover both drawers and a square pattern within the inset on both sides.  

I took it back the next morning and it sold within 15 minutes.  Gotta love it!
