I bought this nightstand two saturdays ago. Which was the day that I was planning to have my own yard sale. And I was going to stay home all morning and mind it like a good girl should. Until.... we had dinner friday night at my inlaws celebrating a birthday and my husband's grandmother told me that her senior's apartment complex was having a big yard sale the next morning and that there was going to be a lot of furniture. So, you know me... guess where I was the next morning? My husband and his brother stayed home and watched the yard sale for me and I took off with my sister in law and headed out. Well, most of the furniture at the sale was cheap particle board stuff, but I did score this nighstand on the way home at a different sale.
I didn't take a before picture, but it was just your typical french provincial piece... creamy white and edged in gold.
At first I thought....hot pink with black handles! But since I wanted to get to work on it right away and didn't have any hot pink paint... I used this bright blue colour. It is actually more turquoise than the pictures show.
After I sprayed the original hardware white I was undecided whether or not to distress them a tad with some sand paper. Until I went back outside to bring them in and discovered that somehow they had fallen off the deck onto the ground... giving me a head start on the distressing!
The new paint really cleaned and freshened this piece up and it is now ready for a new home!
