From humble beginnings in a hotel, here’s the nightstand that caught my bargain-loving eye…a $19.95 deal from The Tutwiler. I knew it was a diamond in the rough. (click all pics to enlarge for details) Home on my driveway awaiting it’s new coat of paint.
Hardware off, primed and ready to paint.
These little mini-rollers are great for painting furniture. Easy to handle. I wrap the whole thing in plastic wrap & store it in the fridge between coats…I’m really lazy & hate to wash paint brushes. The roller, brush & plastic holder stayed in the fridge for at least a week while I was working on this. That’s a good tip for you if you hate to wash brushes like I do…it will all wash out when you finish & want to put it all away.
Paint & mini-roller again.
Painted the hardware with my Sophisticated Finishes in Blackened Bronze. Those finials go on my hubby’s lamps in his office so I painted over the brass on those too.
And here it in in place in my cottage guestroom. I just love it in here & it looks like it belongs with the black bed. Soft pear green paint color is pretty accurate in this pic.
Closeup of the finish & hardware. Hard to get a good pic of black furniture & the paint color. This one shows it a little better.
Whole shot with the bed too…it’s a great little nightstand for the guestroom & I’m really glad I found it. The black pairs well with my old oak pieces in here. My hubby’s office furniture is all finished & in place & when I can get him to straighten the room up, I’ll take pics in there. He doesn’t mind a messy office! I may just have to resort to selective photography to show you that room.
