Nightstand Makeover

I am starting  a bedroom makeover in our Master bedroom, so I started with the smallest pieces!  This is the nightstand makeover!nightstand make-overThey turned out even better than I thought they would!   The dark stain on the top is a wonderful contrast to the light oak color that they were before!night stand make-overThis is what the nightstands looked like before the make-over.  They were an all-over oak color and the tops were getting pretty worn down and looked old.  A little sanding on the tops of the nightstands and a coat of dark walnut made the perfect top to the antique white bottom!nightstand make-overAnnie Sloan chalk paint is what I used for the bottom.  My husband and I did 3 coats of paint.  I mixed pure white and old white together to get this color.  We let it dry good and then I sanded the edges to distress it and added some  soft dark wax to emphasize the antiquing.

To finish off the pieces, I added a coat of Chalk Paint Wax-Clear.  It gives a wonderful luster to the pieces without being too shiny!  I love this finish!  You apply the wax with a soft brush and then buff it with a soft cheesecloth!  It is simple to do and gives your wood pieces a beautiful luster and a water repellent finish.nightstand make-overWe did a make-over on two nightstands, but  for some reason…I only took pictures of one!  

The mason jar lamp comes from World Market.   I love the vintage look of these lamps and the fun they add to our bedroom makeover.

Now, I need to do the head board and the foot board!

I sent my wool applique quilt to the quilter a few weeks ago and I am just waiting to get it back!  It was going to be a bedspread, but I finally decided on a wall hanging because it will show up better on the wall!

That is my Nightstand Makeover.

So…now I need to get the rest of the make-over done!  (I just have too many irons in the fire right now!)

Do you like to make-over furniture?  It is so much fun and I love the look of an old piece brought to new life!

Thanks for Visiting!

  1. You have inspired me! I have a small piece and think I will do it using the same colors/products you have used since I have NEVER done anything like this before! I know it will look awesome!
