Before we get to the final before and after pictures I thought I would explain how I attached the P-Trap that we used as the faucet. I had no idea how to do it and Ryan came up with a brilliant idea!! Using the drill and the bit that you use typically to cut out a hole for a door knob (yes my technicality is out the window right now... I have NO IDEA what that this is called... sorry!!) we cut a round piece of wood the same size as the opening at the bottom of the P-Trap. Then I sanded it down so it would fit perfectly. We glued it and screwed it into place. Then I put glue on the inside of the P-Trap and hammered it on over top of the wood circle, and we had a 'working' faucet!! Here is a picture of the wood circle screwed to the top of the oven.
As for the back splash, we pre-drilled holes in the back of the back splash and the back of the oven and screwed it in place. We pre-drilled the holes so we wouldn't split the wood.
Now for the before and afters! Here is the nightstand before its magical transformation!
And here it is after!!!
A better look at the top of it.
The magnetic back splash
Here I put a Star Wars magnet on to show that it truly is magnetic!
