My little man is changing my luck!!

I always read about people scoring solid wood "soon-to-be" gems at resale stores for next to nothing.  This phenomenon rarely happens to me.  I usually see either "faux" wood pieces or the real thing at less than desirable prices. 

But every once in awhile the stars align..

I spied this sibling set of end tables that weren't marked.  So with my best smile I asked Mr. Thrifty "How much?"..He looked at my sweet sleeping baby and then me and said "$10.00 for both!"  Score!! (Hopefully this whole mommy and cute baby gig will turn my luck around!) I felt like we would be outed, because this particular thrift store overprices I ran walked gracefully to the register and around back to pick up my matching beauties and then hightailed it out of there.

So here they are before in all their honey colored glory:

I sanded them lightly and re-dressed them with a lovely light shade of gray.  I accessorised with glass pulls and gave them each a layer of distressing. 

After the make-over: I think they are elegant and sophisticated.
