when I came upon this curbside find
I knew it had great potential.
I liked its boxy shape.
I didn't mind that the drawer was chipped
because I knew I could either repair it
or replace the drawer with a basket.
The hardware had to go,
so I filled the unused holes
and drilled new ones for the black cup pull.
After sanding, I spray painted
underneath the nightstand, on the back,
and inside the drawers.
That way I made sure everything was fresh
and ready for a new home.
Then it gets a coat of semi-gloss black.
I used my double loaded paintbrush
with 2 reds and coated over the black.
This nightstand is going to be a coordinating piece
to go with the Blue Boys Dresser
so it is getting a blue stripe.
I am using all of the colors
that will be in Dane's bedroom.
And I'm giving options
for using the basket or the green drawer.
Isn't it fun to see what paint can do
for an old piece of furniture!
I never get tired of these fun transformations.
Thanks for joining me!
