I found this nightstand at a local thrift shop for only 5 bucks! Isn't she gorgeous? I walked by it several times and each time my eyes gravitated towards those curvy sides. I had to have it.
I knew what I wanted to do from the moment I bought it. This required sanding the whole thing and sanding it bare on the top. The rest was just sanding enough to remove the varnish.
I painted the body a creamy white. The paint color was called "Soft Brie". Isn't the top attractive naked? I think so.
I wrapped the beautifully painted body with plastic then tackled the top. I applied a pre-stain conditioner then stained it with "Red Oak" stain.
Lastly I applied the varnish and let it set. My final touch was adding new hardware from the Martha Stewart collection at Home Depot.
I find this piece to be very attractive and can't wait to make a matching dresser.
Can you say drab-to-fab? I can. ;)
