Here’s a quick post about a nightstand I refinished last month. I’m lucky to have a few friends who message me when they’re getting rid of furniture. Of course I can’t refuse! Before Christmas my friends’ parents gave me two dressers and a nightstand. I haven’t refinished the dressers yet. My plan is to re-stain the dresser tops and haven’t had a chance to sand the tops yet. But I did get a chance to make over the nightstand.
When I look at a piece of furniture, I love seeing beyond the drab and boring. The two dressers and the nightstand are great pieces, they were just missing a little somethin.’ The nightstand was nice and sturdy and well made so I didn’t have to fix anything before painting. I love when that happens! I just opened a can of Coastal Blue milk paint (General FInishes) and started painting. I kept it simple; paint, distressing and then sealed with polycrylic. For the drawer I lined it with old book pages, sealing them with polycrylic as well. I finished the piece with a drawer pull from Anthropologie and a fun basket for storage. Here are the before and afters!
I just love the navy blue don’t you? What’s your favorite colour trend for furniture?
Thanks for stopping in! Until next time,
