This is a pair of nightstands I picked up from Kijiji for a great price. They are old and solid but were a little beat up in places and needing a little work. One corner was chipped off so I had to sand down all the other corners to match. The back of one of them needed to be replaced since someone had once cut a wonky hole in it. Another set back was the stain; it kept bleeding through my primer. I bought a spray can of Zinsser BIN which covered everything no problem.
I'm still trying to finish up some old cans of paint I have around here. I know you'll be completely shocked to see something painted aqua around here. This isn't even that last of the aqua paint. I have so much paint to go through before I even think about getting some new colours. This particular colour is mostly Para's Rescue Me but lightened up with a bit of Benjamin Moore's Blue Bonnet.
I used my sprayer with these which was really helpful getting in between those little columns in the front. I used some more pages from my Mosaic Memories scrapbook paper and mod podged the front of the drawers. I also mod podged the inside of the drawers with some wallpaper I found at Goodwill a loooong time ago. I protected the paint and paper with some polycrylic using my Purdy brush which does a great job of not leaving brush strokes.
These knobs were picked up at the Habitat for Humanity Restore. Originally they were brass but I gave them a coat of primer and a coat of white. I used some blue and gold craft paint to show off the details.
Bye Bye dull brown; bright and cheery now!
