'Roadkill' turned bedside table

My husband hates it when I pick up 'roadkill'! When I 'dumpster' dive! But, I LOVE it!!!  Nothing beats the feel of 'saving' a furniture life! Getting something for FREE....especially furniture!!! I love fancy furniture. Pieces with scrolls and good lines...It can be expensive!

I don't mind if it's dirty...


 If' it's dark and worn...


Nothing a little elbow grease and paint can't clean up....


So, my husband should feel good when I pick up 'roadkill', right?
