Nightstands Before and After

I am so excited to show you the sweet little nightstands before and after!

My seester and I were hitting the garage sales when she visited a few weeks ago. We found the cutest nightstands, but they are really small. I mean REALLY small. I was going to walk away when my seester told me I would be crazy not to buy them. I loved the lines. They were really sturdy. They would look killer awesome in a little girls bedroom after they were redone. So I bought them.

I pondered what to do with them. I finally decided to go with a really pretty white that wasn’t too cold or too warm. Annie Sloan Pure White.

Since the tops were laminate, I gave them a light sanding even though AS Chalk Paint adheres to almost everything. Better safe than sorry!

I liked the hardware, which is very unusual for me, so I left it on and painted right over it!

Two coats of paint on each stand and they were looking good!

I lightly distressed each nightstand to help all of the detail stand out. So. Darn. Pretty!

If you follow my blog, you know that I am not gonna leave the drawers plain jane! No way.

I gave them a couple of coats of Rustoleum turquoise spray paint. The perfect pop of color.

On a recent trip to Michaels I found these really cool papers on sale for $2.99 a roll! What a bargain. They had tons of colors, I wish I had bought more. These papers would be perfect for a lot of things, including lining the drawers.

See how cute? I have said it before, and I will say it many more times I am sure, I love opening a drawer and finding a fun surprise! Business on the outside and a party goin’ on  in the inside!

My seester was right, these nightstands redone are killer awesome. I honestly love how they turned out. They are definitely in my top 10 fav’s of all time. I can’t wait to see them in the perfect little girls room!

Don’t forget to check them out in my shop before you leave.

Until next time….
