This set of nightstands are old but still in good shape they just looked very outdated. I was so tremendously happy with the way the dresser turned out when it came time for the for the next project I wanted to do the nightstands to match and I am very happy with how they turned out. Now they all look like a matching set. I am having so much fun re-doing this furniture and figuring out how I want our bedroom decorated. I use pinterest a lot for ideas and came across a gold and turquoise accented bedroom. I loved it so much that I am incorporating those colors into the color scheme. I love the clean chic of the white with a pop of the turquoise color.
So to begin I washed and dried the night stands and took off the hardware. I lugged them outside because it was perfect spray painting weather. The nightstands were pretty scuffed up and worn out a bit. There was no deep scratches or nicks to be filed so I got right at it.
So I took the night stands outside and got them ready to paint. I don’t usually do this I only paint outside when the weather is just right but today was perfect.
Two coats of Krylon Dual Paint+Primer in Ivory is all that it took to turn these into new nightstands. For the handles I did the same as I did for the dresser and sprayed them with Krylon Metallic in Brilliant Gold. *Spary Paint Magic*
I’m so in love with decorating our bedroom that I’m kinda sad that I’m almost done, but I have so much more to do in so many other rooms and I am very excited to soon focus on that.I think they turned out perfect!
