I'm all about painting pieces and reusing them and Nathan sometimes thinks I'm just silly, but this time, he jumped at the chance to redo this piece for me. I think he just needed some fresh air and time away from a crying baby that afternoon :)
Funny thing is, this item is still for sale on target.com (even after ALL of these years!)
He was able to cut the middle section out and then put the top back on. He went ahead and sanded it down and painted it gray for me. I love it...and him for doing little things like this to make me happy!
I love my "new" stand in the living room!
