When the time comes for new nightstands, it seems almost impossible to find attractive ones in pairs, especially while thrifting. This inexpensive solution takes care of things by using a desk instead, with a few modifications of course. Want to see what this desk looks like today?

There are some projects you just have to have a vision for and this one from Sugar Bee Crafts is one of them. Would you walk into a thrift store, check out an old desk and see night stands? Well that's exactly what happened here.

The old desk was purchased for $10 and was cut into pieces. A new edge was routed along one side and each piece was painted bright yellow. It's a great solution at a fraction of a price and eliminates the headache of finding two identical pieces at a price you can afford.

Check out more details on how this project came to live over at Sugar Bee Crafts.
