DIY Night Stand Overhaul!

Cat Butt! C:

I am so excited about this project I've taken on. While in Boston for a second time, I thirfted this nightstand. It was so cute, but $35, so I was prepared to walk away (with some difficulty). As I turned around, the man behind the counter said, "You know it's half off green tags today." So I carried it all they way back to the car, shoved it in the back (somehow) and brought it home. It had an old perfume spill in it so I've been using everything I have to try get that old, sickly smell out. Aside from that it's pretty clean and sturdy. A friend of mine recently thrifted a similar thing and painted it a lovely red, so I've been inspired to paint mine too. I'm thinking a turquoise blue of some sort.. I was leaning towards a lighter shade, but my friend thinks a darker be would be better..Opinions?
