It seems like lately I have been redoing a lot of end tables and night stands. This is the second night stand for my bedroom redo, and then I did a third one just because it was so cute and I couldn't pass it up. I love this night stand because its so sturdy, has drawers, and has a fairly good size top. I painted another night stand and a dresser for my room using white paint, so I decided to keep this one and paint it with ASCP.
I haven't been the biggest fan of chalk paint but since I didn't want to sand this and already had the paint, I decided to try it again. I painted it old white, then sanded the whole thing until it was as smooth as silk. I went into this project knowing that using chalk paint would require a lot of sanding. I think because I was expecting that step it made using chalk paint okay for me. The sanding went really fast and I like that about this paint.
I then distressed it and finished it off with spray on poly. I sprayed the hardware with Rustoleum's Oil Bronze, and feel they match the piece better now, it updated them.
I'm glad that I chose to keep this night stand instead of switching it with one of the
other one's that I had gotten at a yard sale.
I have four dressers that are needing to be painted and because I finally got
the hang of how to use chalk paint,and know what to expect, I can't wait to get started on all of them.
Thanks for stopping by, I love your comments and new follower's as well.
