Potato bin nightstand

Boy, doen't THIS sound riveting??!! Did I spell potato right, or is there an 'e' on the end, I can never remember. Anyway... We have probably the world's smallest master bedroom, AND we own a king size bed. So, needless to say, space is tight! Poor Mike, has always had his alarm clock on the floor next to his side of the bed. But that is about to change! I was over at my mom and dad's house last week and went "shopping" in their basement storage room. There is some good stuff in there! I came across this potatoe (OOH, I think there IS an e) bin, and a great idea came into my mind to transform it into Mike's side table. My mom said sure, my dad said, "what else do you want to take with you", and my sister didn't want to claim it, so it was mine!! Upon arriving home that day, Mike said "what is that potatoe bin for"? I told him, he rolled his eyes at it and me, and I said just wait, let me work some majic on it. So, it has been sitting in the garage for a week now, but I am off all weekend, so am excited to start. I already bought my can of antique white spray paint, that matches the dresser and my side table. I may try to do something with the doors, or I may pull them off altogether and place 3 cute brown bins in each of the spots......What are you working on this weekend, or what are you thinking about working on??

I haven't seen you in forever! And I can't wait to see what you do with it. And no, Dan Quayle, there is no E on potato. Heeheehee...you're so cute.

Now, I would LOVE to own a potato bin, LOL! I buy several hundred pounds of potatoes at a time. They wouldn't all fit in that, though!

I say, paint it, changed out the knobs, and enjoy! It will be really nice!
