nightstand love affair...


My mother-in-law brought me a little 3-drawer nightstand several months ago. I have had it sitting on my back porch since then... just waiting for it's make-over. I even bought the paint color I wanted to use with my mother-in-law that weekend... it's just been waiting. I knew we were going to have amazing weather this weekend, and after the success of the $3 nightstand re-do, I've been itching to give this one a facelift as well. Here it is... start to finish...

The before photo... well after I started taking off some of the pulls.


Stirring up the paint color... with a kabob stick...


Here's the color of choice...


Drawers out... first coat of paint on. So far, so good...


Problem... these stupid little things that were behind the drawer pulls would NOT come off.


Solution... paint directly over those stupid little things.


Little Cat came out to examine my work so far... look at those critical eyes.


Looking much better after a second coat of paint.


I found these adorably simple drawer pulls at Lowes. I love the vintage feel they add. I lightly distressed the edges to add some character.


One more time, the before photo. Drumroll please....


And here it is... the finished product. I think I'm in love.
