Our weekend was filled with projects, and some more projects – I just LOVE checking things off the to-do list!
I showed you a quick peek at my “new” nightstand makeover last week (along with the inspiration for the entire room), but thought I’d bring you full circle with the full-meal deal before and after.
It was a spray-paint gone bad experiment from someone else clearly when I got her – a mix of gold and copper.
A little too regal for my taste.
So duh, I painted it white.
And I’ll be honest – I first tried using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White, but it was so streaky that I hated it.
I know. As a DIY’er, I’m supposed to love this stuff right?
Well, I’m a novice at best, and got some great advice from this gal, and am not throwing in the towel yet. But for this little guy, I was eager to put him to work, so I just finished it off with a flat white spray paint. Distressed and sealed the top.
I love the details.
And I didn’t realize until I uploaded these pics, that I accidentally put this bottom handle back on upside down. Eh, whatev. Versatile hardware. 🙂
This room is slowly, but surely, taking shape! And I’m starting to love it!
