Black and Brushed Nickel Nightstand

It's always fun
to see how a little paint
and some new hardware
will change the whole personality
of a piece of furniture.

This nightstand was a newish
solid piece of furniture to begin with
but was going in a gray bedroom.
So this black and brushed nickel update
will make it right at home
against a gray wall.

Base painted with a Flat Black enamel
and detailed with a semi-gloss black
and metallic gunmetal gray
you can see subtle scroll and leaves.

From some angles you don't even notice the pattern.
It just depends on how the light hits it.

The new brushed nickel cup pulls
complement the paint palette.

Now it has some personality!

Thanks for stopping by,

I love this technique, and your piece is really wonderful. I did 2 side tables with a satin over all & then stenciled some fiddle head ferns on top in high gloss, I liked them but not as much as yours.
